Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Mastercard Presale?

As our premier sponsor, Mastercard® is offering tickets for Presale to their members. Mastercard members receive a 2 week advance purchase window for each city as tickets are released. To access, all you need is your Mastercard and you’ll be able to purchase tickets before anyone else. Don’t miss out on this PRICELESS opportunity. If you attempt to purchase with any other card, you will receive an error.


What will be on the menu?

Each of the dinners will feature a different prix-fixe menu put together by the chefs cooking that night. On the preliminary dinner nights, Thursday and Friday, 12 different chefs will each present one dish in a multi-course menu. At the Sunday night Grand Finale, all 24 chefs will be paired up and collaborate on a blow out, final tasting menu.While the menus for each night will not be finalized until each of the chefs has a chance to meet in person and collaborate the week of the event, we can promise you they will feature a wide range of styles, talents, as well as the highest quality produce, fish, and meats. We will post menus as we get closer to the event.

Important note: With the number of chefs working in a small kitchen space to produce so many dishes, the dinner event will not be able to offer any substitutions or changes for dietary restrictions. Thank you in advance for understanding.

What is included in my ticket price?

In addition to one seat for the multi-course meal, you will receive a glass of sparkling wine and canapes at arrival. For the ticket price, you also get 4+ glasses of wines paired with our food from amazing new and old world producers, 12 courses of food from 12 different incredibly talented chefs, and an evening hearing about the chefs and their restaurants from all over North America.

We appreciate your ticket purchase! The money gathered from ticket sales is used to fund every visiting chef’s travel, ingredients, and accommodations during the event. Many of these chefs are leading small restaurants, and we try to make it as easy as possible for them to come collaborate in each of our host cities.

Can I bring my own wine?

Unfortunately, we cannot allow off premise wine.

What is the dress code?

There is no dress code for ChefsFeed Indie Week – come as you’d like!

What happens if I have tickets and now I can’t make it to the event?

Tickets are nonrefundable, but they are transferrable. If you can no longer make it to the dinner you purchased tickets for, please find your original booking email from Tock if you’d like to transfer your tickets to another guest. There is a process by which you can transfer tickets to another guest.

Where will I be sitting?

The best seats are given to guests in the order they were purchased. The earlier you buy, the better the seats closest to the action. However, we strive to make sure all seats are great seats and you’ll still feel as though you’re part of the action and will receive plenty of chef interaction time.

Will my contact information be used for anything else?

Nope! The email address gathered by Tock during ticket payment will only be used for ChefsFeed Indie Week. We’ll send out a reminder email before the event, as well as updates on future CFIW events. You can opt out of those at any time.

How can I get involved in Indie Chefs Week?

We’re always looking for more ways to collaborate! If you’re a chef who’d like to be considered for the next ChefsFeed Indie Week, a local who’d like to volunteer for the event, a business owner who is interested in sponsorship, or any other lovely supporter, feel free to contact us here.
