Looking for Chef to teach lesson in my home

Hello,

I am new to posting here, but not reading.

I am looking for a chef that is available to come to my home (Red Oak area) to teach a cooking lesson to 4-8 people. This activity is for my husband's birthday. The preferred area is Mexican food -- his favorite. We would especially like to learn to make Tamales from scratch. We would like a 3 or 4 course meal.

If you know of anyone, could you please send me their contact info? How much would such an activity cost?

    I wish I could tell you of someone but, I don't know anyone suitable.

    However, as a suggestion, you might call one of the Dallas area culinary schools such as Le Cordon Bleu. I would think they could help you.

    Good luck.

      Could get pricey. I have heard chefs charging $1500 and up for private dinners. I would consider looking at a chef between gigs like Marc Casell. Like twin says, there are some wonderful chefs working at Cordon Bleu that could help like Joel Harloff.

        It's a shame you cannot send private messages on this board. There are a few great low key chefs to rec, but I hesitate to post about them here mainly because they do these things very quietly. If there is a way for you to visit the Dallas forum on City Data and look for me, pepper131 - you can send me a direct message.
