Chef One combines culture and flavor, leading you on a journey with each delicious bite. Founded in the vibrant melting pot of Brooklyn, NY, Chef One started by perfecting its authentic Asian dumplings and rolls. Then the innovation began, with flavors and ingredients inspired by the cultures of the world. Today, Chef One is an industry leader in Asian fusion appetizers, using fresh ingredients and just the right blend of seasonings. Biting into Chef One is an experience.

Taking their love of dumplings to the next level, Chef One founded the NYC Dumpling Festival in 2009, with all proceeds benefiting Food Bank for New York City. The festival serves as a celebration of all things dumpling, from its origin over 1000 years ago to the many variations around the world. Along with its popular Dumpling Eating Contest, the festival has attracted thousands of dumpling lovers and raised over $250,000 for charity.


Chef One was founded on the principal, “There’s a CHEF in EveryONE”. Whether high volume food service or a quick snack at home, their products are easy to prepare and taste and look great when they reach the plate. Explore and enjoy with Chef One!
