New Virtual Cooking Class “Deri Dari” Connects Users With Local Philly Chefs and Includes Groceries!
Deri Dari, the brand new virtual cooking experience for aspiring chefs and unexperienced home-cooks alike, is pleased to announce it is launching in Philadelphia on December 3 – ahead of national roll out to cities such as New York and Chicago in 2021.
On Deri Dari, a custom built virtual platform aimed at connecting at-home-cooks and those eager to improve their culinary skills with a professional chef, users can browse a range of dishes or themes, i.e. holiday meals for a family, or can search directly by chef! Cooking experiences range from 30-90 minutes and include grocery delivery for added convenience. Classes start at $15 for a side dish.
“Deri Dari is all about having fun while learning new ways to cook from certified chefs from the comfort and safety of your home. Plus, you have the added knowledge that you are helping support chefs, their families, and local communities during this un precedented time,” said Jake Doherty, CEO of Deri Dari.
Local chefs from Philadelphia such as Joshua Northcutt and Rebecca Valenti and culinary experts from around the world will curate and teach their favorite recipes during private one-on-one or small group video conferences. All ingredients and goods necessary for any interactive cooking experience will be available for home delivery.
The booking system of Deri Dari is extremely user-friendly. Costumers simply look for a chef or cooking experience of their choice and check the calendar of the favored chef for a class. Once booked, users will receive their cooking kit two days prior to the experience as well as a link for the class. Once the class is about to start, customers will be connected to their chef of choice in real-time through a unique web-based video platform, ensuring a stable and buffer-free environment.
In addition to launching in Philadelphia in order to support our out-of-work chefs, Deri Dari has also struck up an exclusive partnership with Mama-Tee’s Community Fridge Project by sponsoring two fridges and providing recipe cards, ingredients, and free classes on building delicious and nutritious meals from the staple ingredients provided. “We are so thrilled to be partnered with Deri Dari. During this unprecedented time supporting our friends in the restaurant industry while helping those with food insecurity is important. Looking forward to more creative ideas to come!” said Michele Nelson, founder of Mama Tee Community Fridges.
Deri Dari will launch in Philadelphia now ahead of its roll out to New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, and New Orleans in the coming year. “Deri Dari chose Philadelphia as the launch city so we could focus on supporting out-of- work or underemployed chefs in the region during this difficult time.”
