Cook with SideChef

Our Story

Meet Kevin.

Four years ago, he set out to cook dinner for his girlfriend and had an extraordinary revelation–he didn’t know how to cook! Cookbooks and online recipes expected him to know how to do things like “blanch asparagus” and “mince garlic.” Long lists of cooking steps felt too overwhelming to attempt. And that was his “aha!” moment. Kevin set out to create a new recipe format for the modern home chef.

Meet SideChef.

Our mobile app features over 11,000 recipes with robust search filtering, meal planning, ingredient delivery, step-by-step guidance with photos, instructional videos, voice command, in-app timers, and smart appliance control. We call it an end-to-end cooking platform. Which is tech-talk for “we can do it all!” We are leading the revolution of the home cooking experience by simplifying the process of making delicious meals and proving that anyone can cook. Whether you want to save money, eat healthier, or impress your family and friends, SideChef is here to be your kitchen assistant.
