SideChef, a Los Angeles, CA-based cooking app, closed $1m in seed funding.
The round was led by Empower Investment and Peacock Capital.
The company intends to use the funds to create partnerships with various companies in the United States and expand their network and their library of recipes as well as other content including cooking techniques.
Launched in March 2014 by CEO Kevin Yu, SideChef is an app that displays detailed photography and written instructions for users to cook over 1,000 recipes from more than 100 food bloggers worldwide. The recipes cover diverse cuisines and cater to special diets including gluten-free, vegan and low-fat.
