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 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?

    Each chef selects their own recipe to share that’s special to them, as well as be approachable and versatile.

  • What about dietary restrictions?

    Recipes are conducive to vegetarian, 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.
