About Sous Chef



Sous Chef is the online destination for adventurous cooks, offering ingredients, equipment, tableware and gifts inspired by leading chefs and international cuisine. 

Sous Chef’s innovative product range has been widely featured in the press, including the Observer Food Monthly, the Independent, Sunday Telegraph, Evening Standard, Radio Times, Stylist, Shortlist, BBC Good Food, Delicious, Olive, Good Housekeeping and Homes & Gardens magazines.

We’re based in London with a warehouse full of fabulous things, ready for next day delivery. Sous Chef has served over fifty thousand customers including some of the top Michelin-starred restaurants in Europe since we opened in August 2012.

We're all about:

Flavour – from the world’s hottest chilli to Raymond Blanc’s favourite olive oil, the numbing heat of Sichuan pepper to the fruity acidity of raspberry vinegar, we’ve scoured the world to bring you ingredients which are bursting with flavour.

Discovery – sample a new cuisine with our convenient cookbook sets; taste the difference between the smoky-sweetness of a guajillo and the citrus heat of a piquin in our chilli selection; infuse cocktails or teas with our edible flowers; sample red Hawaiian salt or Chinese preserved black beans – there’s a world of flavour to explore at Sous Chef.

Provenance – we source with care from producers who share our passion for flavour and quality. Our peppers, for example, are sourced from a single harvest and region, enabling you to enjoy the unique flavour of that terroir. 

Excitement – bring theatre to your table with a Himalayan salt plate; try your hand at sperification with our molecular ingredients or infuse your dishes with smoke – let your creativity run wild at Sous Chef!

Authority – we’ve tasted the ingredients, tested the equipment, served guests with our tableware and cooked from our cookbooks. We have the best job in the world! So if you need advice just give us a ring – we’re always happy to help.

Service – we work hard to bring you the best possible service and consistently enjoy exceptionally high customer satisfaction ratings in independent Feefo surveys.


Happy shopping!
