Whether cooking a full Thanksgiving dinner, preparing a side dish or simply helping out in the kitchen, ShopRite’s top chefs will be “on call” to guide seasoned cooks and beginners alike through their holiday meal plans and preparations.
Our Culinary Workshop Chefs from stores located in New York & New Jersey will be staffing the phones. They include:

In addition to answering questions received through ShopRite’s Customer Care Center via 1-800-ShopRite, these ShopRite Culinary Workshop Chef Instructors will also share preparation tips and kitchen-tested recipe ideas that are sure to complement the most treasured of traditional holiday meals.
