CityChef: Enjoy delicious chefs’ dishes without leaving your apartment!

In Paris anyone can order food to eat in at home without having to move at all. You might have your doubts about this, but did you know that you can get dishes delivered that are concocted by your own personal chef? How is this possible?! Using CityChef!

What’s the idea behind CityChef?


Couverts autour d'un bonnet de chef

CityChef is the first delivery service in Paris to showcase this new generation of chefs. Haute cuisine is brought straight to your home!
You don’t need to do anything at home, apart from spending a couple of minutes clearing the stove, getting out some nice plates and enjoying the chef’s meal in the company of your dinner guests.
What’s the point?
Today, we live such fast-paced lives that organizing a dinner party at home can easily become a source of stress (planning the meal, going shopping, doing the cooking). But this shouldn’t mean we can’t enjoy eating well!
On the other hand, young chefs skilled in the art of French gastronomy want to make themselves and their cooking known. CityChef is about bringing chefs and foodies together to share their passion for fine dining!

How does CityChef work?

Plat à portée de souris

Simply visit the website www.citychef.fr to see what meals are offered. You can choose the day and time that suits you best and place your order online. The meal is then delivered to your address in Paris or the surrounding area on the day you selected.
You’ll also receive a sheet with detailed instructions from the chef for warming up the food and photos of how it should be presented. All that’s left for you to do is to plate up the food and impress your guests.
To enjoy a real chef’s meal at home, expect to pay between 20-30 euros per head!

When is this service available?

3 days a week (Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings), but soon it will be offered on a daily basis… and you’ll be able to use an app to order food using your phone!

Helping foreigners discover the riches of Parisian cuisine

After a long day of sightseeing in the city, you might want to stay in the hotel or in your apartment… But you may not have the strength to cook and take-out sushi in the capital of France seems like such a waste!
With CityChef, you can stay in and relax, enjoy a gourmet dinner and effortlessly discover the wonders of French cuisine. The highest quality and stunning tastes are guaranteed.
