Sous Chef is the shop for people who love cooking! They are the place-to-be online for cooks and chefs – with ingredients, equipment, tableware and gifts inspired by leading restaurants and international food.
Based in north London with a warehouse full of fabulous things, ready for next day delivery. Sous Chef ships to thousands of customers every week, from home cooks to some of the top Michelin-starred restaurants across Europe.
I started Sous Chef together with my husband Nick in 2012. Working in a Michelin-starred kitchen, I had been cooking with amazing ingredients and wanted to make them more widely available. So Sous Chef was born. And today we are still an independent family business. Every month we add hundreds of new products, inspired by leading restaurant menus, chefs we speak to, and our travels to producers around the world.
I am a keen cook and make the majority of my meals from scratch, its fresher, healthier and much more flavoursome. Plus you know exactly what is being put in your meals.

A little more about the products
Black truffle oil
Black truffle oil has a wonderfully intense aroma and rich earthy flavours. The truffle oil should be used as a finishing oil – to drizzle over dishes just before serving. The fine truffled Italian extra virgin olive oil is delicious drizzled over beef fillets, mushroom risottos, roasted celeriac and Jerusalem artichokes, or even scrambled eggs for a luxurious breakfast dish.
Acacia honey with truffle
Truffle honey is a delicious condiment made from amber-coloured acacia honey, infused with slivers of real truffle. The intense aromas of truffle honey go particularly well with ricotta and blue cheeses. Truffle-flavoured honey has a savoury richness which means it’s also delicious drizzled over grilled meats and savoury bourekas.
Truffle & Mushroom Salsa
This truffle & mushroom salsa is a umami-rich blend of mushrooms, with a hint of truffle. Spoon onto crusty bread, stir through pasta, or spoon straight from the jar. The lightly textured truffle salsa is great dabbed onto rare roast beef as a small flavoursome canapé, drizzled over cheese on toast, or even spooned straight from the jar.
Carnaroli Risotto Rice With Truffle
The carnaroli rice is mixed with dried mushrooms, vegetables, and summer truffles for the classic Italian risotto experience. Carnaroli risotto rice is the ‘caviar’ of Italian rice, and has a long, elegant grain which holds its shape to create a beautifully-textured risotto.
Sous Chef are also one of the first online retailers to work towards being single use plastic free in their shipping. My parcel was packed with lots of recycled paper, which I then recycled!
This Sous Chef Mini Truffle Gift Set would be a perfect gift for every Dad this Father’s Day. We know he deserves a little indulgence, and this truffle gift set is just that. Black truffle oil, truffle salsa, truffle honey and even risotto rice with truffle will let dad experiment with one of the world’s most luxurious ingredients.
