I think the prices are on the website and depend on the number of dishes you learn to cook. From the top of my head we paid around 350,000 per person but you eat what you cook. Really worth it.

You have the option of 3 different meals to cook and the price varies based on your choice. I think it ranged from about $15-$30 usd
