Welcome To Deri Dari
Find Your Chef Or Cooking Experience
The Deri Dari platform allows you to search by Chef or Experience. Each Experience represents a recipe custom designed by a Chef highlighting their unique cooking style and speciality. Deri Dari Experiences have optional Ingredient Delivery in selected areas, purchasable for one household or as a package for an entire Group Experience. Our exclusive Ingredient Delivery system allows for you to choose the ingredients you would like to have for your course and have those items delivered to your home prior to their event.
Deri Dari Chefs have been hand selected for their teaching abilities, outgoing personalities, and culinary skills. Each Chef has met our stringent interview and application process, are subject to customer reviews and Deri Dari oversight for accountability.
All of the Experiences listed on Deri Dari are bookable by household. One household represents one family unit or individual. If you wish to book an Experience for more than one household this option is also available up to a total of six households/individuals, on six different devices. When booking for additional households please have a contact email available representing each household for confirmation, optional ingredient delivery, recipe, and video conferencing link. Our chefs choose their recipes based on knowledge, quality, and an estimated cooking time of one hour.
Build a unique Culinary Journey with a Chef using the Deri Dari chat feature. Perfect for corporate events, large family gatherings, holidays, dinner dates, or recipe scaling. Contact a Chef directly using the email “Contact Me” link on their biography or Experience page to finalize dates, times, Experience and recipe. Once arrangements have been agreed upon, the Chef will create a custom booking for your approval and purchase.

Booking an Experience and Choosing the Number of Households
After creating your account, you can choose your Interactive Culinary Experience and use the Book Now feature to choose the number of households that will participate in the Experience. Each household represents one family unit or individual. Deri Dari Experiences can be booked for up to six households. Once you have chosen the number of households you would like to book for, you will then be prompted to enter contact email addresses for all participating households. We’ll use the email addresses to send confirmations, the video link, optional ingredient delivery information, and the recipe.
After confirming the number of households and booking, customers will be asked to enter a valid zip code to check eligibility for ingredient delivery. If ingredient delivery is available, you’ll see a list of all ingredients to choose from, selecting which (or all!) you would like delivered.
If ingredient delivery is not available in your area, you will be sent directly to the payment portal for credit card input and booking confirmation.
