I like Les's idea. Hire the guy teaching the class.
$1000 a shot seems like it would be difficult to sustain.
Any photographer you hire should be able to show you a portfolio with enough work in it to give you an idea of what to expect. If you are looking for food photography, and a photographer shows you a lot of portraits, with a hamburger or two in the mix, that should tell you he doesn't usually shoot food. You want someone who can show you a large number of food shots. If you want the interior of your B&B, your photographer should have pictures of building interiors to show you, and buildings that are the same general size and mood as yours. A bunch of huge hotel lobbies and office conference rooms don't tell you how he will shoot a B&B.
You can hire someone who isn't an expert at your subject matter, just, don't expect that his shots of your B&B will be as compelling as his portraits.
