What World Chef
viewers say about us


What designates a World Chef?

Our World Chefs represent the underground stars, the new world mavericks, and the world’s best. From next generation breakout talent, to au courant zeitgeist stars, to award-winning global icons, they’re the brightest stars in the food world. If you know a local chef who deserves their shot at the World Chef stage, you can nominate them by sending us an email. We’re always looking for rising stars who deserve their big break.

What is the World Chef Box?

Your fully recyclable, insulated food box is hand-packed by our sous chefs who have artfully prepared and packed every ingredient to the exact specifications of your World Chef. In order to guarantee your fresh, seasonal produce and proteins arrive in perfect condition, our food safety experts personally seal every box before it leaves the World Chef kitchen.

How long is each World Chef Event?

Your event is 90 minutes long and is designed so you can eat with your guests at the end of the event. We encourage you to log in about 30 minutes before start time so we can help make sure you’ve got everything set up and ready to go. Our host will greet all guests in the waiting room prior to introducing the chef and offer important instructions on how to maximize your cook-along with your World Chef.

Where do I watch my event?

From your laptop or tablet, log into your account at and go to the “My Events” section of “My Kitchen.” A half-hour before the event, you’ll be able to join the livestream by clicking the “Watch Now” button. Or, if you’re watching on demand, it will say “Watch On Demand.”

Can I give World Chef as a gift?

You sure can! From birthdays to Mother’s Day, corporate gifts to Anniversaries… you can gift a World Chef Box and culinary class to every foodie in your life simply by plugging in their address at checkout. We are happy to fulfill bulk orders as well. Go ahead and email us at [email protected] with your gifting questions!

When can I order my World Chef Box OUTSIDE of Los Angeles?

While it’s true we are currently only delivering World Chef Boxes to customers in and around the Los Angeles area, we will be expanding nationwide later this year. Please register anywhere on the site and we will let you know when we will be delivering to your area!

Ugh, I have a scheduling conflict and can’t make the live event.

No problem! Your event is available for a limited time following the live premiere. Just email us and we will do our best to schedule your food box delivery within a few days of the live premiere while supplies last!

Can’t I just go buy the ingredients I need at the grocery store?

Our World Chefs handpick all the ingredients for their events, which means they are only available through World Chef. But don’t worry, after you’ve participated in the live event, if you want to recreate the experience with your own handpicked ingredients for your on-demand viewing pleasure, you can find the recipe in your personalized World Chef “My Events” Dashboard. Keep an eye out for encores of your favorite events where we will re-release the most sought-after food boxes!

Do I get to talk to the Chef?

Our World Chefs LOVE hearing from viewers. While we can’t guarantee the Chefs will talk to you directly, the World Chef experience is always a two-way conversation. The more you comment in the chat section during the events, the better your odds of getting a shout out. If you’re celebrating a special occasion, please email us and we’ll prioritize your request to talk to the Chef. And of course, we’re on call during every event in case you need a little extra help.

Can the World Chef Box accommodate my food sensitivities and dietary restrictions?

Our #1 goal is to provide you with a WORLD CLASS World Chef experience! Unfortunately, we cannot currently accommodate any changes to the event menus. But rest assured that we are working on ways to accommodate all food sensitivities and dietary restrictions for future events.

Help! My World Chef Box hasn’t arrived yet!

Yikes! Don’t worry. We’ll stop at nothing to replace your World Chef Box if it goes missing and ensure it arrives in plenty of time to cook along with your chosen World Chef. Email Customer Service, and we’ll personally make it right for you. [email protected]

Tech Support, we have a problem!

Oh man, that’s frustrating. No worries. Email us at [email protected] and we’ll connect you with a well-fed tech support guru to coach you through your streaming issues. You’ll be back up and cooking in no time!
