Everyone likes delicious food, but not everyone can cook. Cooking can be a pretty daunting task for some people, and I know this because I usually get completely lost in the kitchen.

With a vision of making everyone a great cook, California-based serial entrepreneur Kevin Yu founded SideChef in 2014, a step-by-step cooking app. The startup team decided to take SideChef to China after receiving positive feedback from the U.S. and European users and a US$1 million seed financing from Peacock Capital and Empower Investment Group at the end of last year.

Available across iOS and Android devices, SideChef teach users how to cook in a step-by-step manner, demonstrating every move of a recipe as well as the list of ingredients with pictures and videos. The app also integrated several helpful features like automatic timers and voice controls so that cooks with dirty hands can keep an eye on both their dishes and their devices.
