Frequently Asked Questions

  • Is the Chefinar a full meal?

    Each recipe serves 4 – perfect to share with the family. Recipes are hearty dishes that stand alone, or pair with your family’s favorites!

  • When do you need our addresses?

    Addresses must be submitted at least 10 business days in advance to ensure pre-event delivery of your ingredients.

  • What if I don't know my total # of guests?

    That’s okay! Book your event with a deposit for your minimum attendance estimate. Final count due 10 business days prior to event (with your mailing addresses.) Continue to add “BYO” guests at any time.

     

     

  • What if we don't upgrade to delivery?

    Totally fine! We’ll send you an ingredients list in advance if you’d like to still cook along with Chef, or you can simply watch and learn and ask questions as you soak in the stories and techniques.

  • Can we choose the recipe?

    Chefs and recipes are not guaranteed in advance, but we’ll do our best to fulfill requests at the time of booking based on current availability.

  • What about dietary restrictions?

    The base of all our dishes are vegetarian and can be accommodated to vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, and nut-free diets. Let us know if there’s a particular restriction in your group so we can be sure to pair you with an appropriate recipe.

  • What if I have some international participants?

    Guests outside of delivery range can also participate “BYO” style. We’ll provide an ingredients list in advance for them to procure their own items locally.
