Corine M. says, " It was my first time at EZ Compliments Cooking Classes, and it was fantastic. Shilpi was full of knowledge and shared with us everything that she could. Teaching us about spices. Then off to cooking and she is a great teacher, very patient, and it was a small class so it felt like a one on one class. Cant wait to go back. I Highly recommend this class for anyone." Read more

I love seeing my students apply what they have learned with me. It's when they get that "a-ha" moment that I know I've made a difference. I've been given the gift of teaching and have applied it in several areas to help students overcome obstacles and achieve goals.

Your cooking questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Lessons.

How much do cooking classes cost near me?

Cooking classes cost $60 to $140 per person for a one-time in-person class or $200 to $500 for a class including three to five sessions where you'll learn to create different meals from a specific region or type of cuisine. Online cooking classes cost $20 to $100.

The cost of cooking classes depends on:

  • Class length
  • Group class vs. private lesson
  • Beginner or advanced skill level
  • Type of cuisine
  • Recipe difficulty
  • Chef's or instructor's reputation
  • Location
  • Hands-on vs. demonstration-only
  • Whether the class focuses on teaching a specific culinary technique or recipe or is a collaborative class where each student prepares one part of the overall menu

How long are cooking classes?

In-person cooking classes typically last 2 to 3 hours, depending on the class type and size, whether it's hands-on or demonstration-only, and the cuisine type. Most online cooking classes are 1 to 2 hours long.

What types of cooking classes are there?

Cooking classes range from introductory lessons that teach you basic culinary techniques to advanced classes that teach you how to prepare a five-course meal from scratch. Date night classes are a popular way to bond with your partner while learning how to prepare delicious meals.

Common cooking class types and topics include:

  • French cuisine
  • Italian cuisine
  • Asian cuisine
  • Vegetarian cuisine
  • Baking
  • Breadmaking
  • Handmade pasta
  • Sushi
  • Date night cooking class
  • Kids cooking class
  • Family cooking class
  • Knife skills

Should I tip the cooking class instructor?

Tipping the instructor at a group cooking class is not expected. If you enjoy the class, post a positive review online and consider sharing photos and the school's information on social media.

For private classes from a chef, tip 15% to 25% for exemplary service.

How can I find the best cooking classes near me?

A cooking class can help you master the basics, learn advanced culinary techniques, explore new ingredients and cuisines, and boost your confidence in the kitchen. Follow these tips to help you find the best class for you:

  • Decide whether you want to take a group class, date night class, or private lesson.
  • Choose a class focusing on the type of cuisine you want to create.
  • Read reviews from past students on Lessons and Google.
  • Confirm whether the class is hands-on or demonstration-only.
  • Ask about class size, schedule, and supplies needed.
  • Let the instructor know ahead of time if you have a food allergy.

What questions should I ask before signing up for cooking classes?

Ask these questions to help you choose the cooking class that best suits your needs:

  • What cooking techniques or recipes will I learn in the class?
  • What is the typical class size?
  • Will I make my own items or is it a collaborative class where each student makes part of the meal?
  • Do I need to bring anything special with me?
  • Are the classes hands-on or demonstration-only?
  • Will we get to eat the food we prepare at the end of class?
  • Can I take leftover food home with me?
  • Do you offer private classes?
  • Can I buy a class as a gift for someone else?
  • Are there any age restrictions?
  • What if I have food allergies?

Chef Jeff was great. Funny, stylish, punctual, and great communicator. I used him to teach my daughter and I some kitchen skills and tips and would highly recommend.

We had such a great time learning to cook Indian with Shilpi. She explained things in a way that I know will stick with me and was insistent that we reach out with any questions when we try things on our own. The food was so flavorful and left us full and happy! We cant wait to try the chef's table next!
Jim A.
We did handmade ravioli, and sauce from scratch. Then we ate till we popped. Can’t wait for the next one!
