Sam The Cooking Guy X Chosen Foods: A Match Made in Foodie Heaven

Chosen Team

Sam The Cooking Guy is a one-of-a-kind chef that holds a special place in our hearts here at Chosen Foods. His cooking philosophy comes down to this: creating “food that’s big in taste but small in effort.” That’s definitely something we can get behind! 🙌

Over the years, we’ve partnered with Sam to concoct exclusive recipes with Chosen Foods Cooking Oils, Dressings, Mayos and more. We couldn’t be more honored to hold the coveted title of Official Cooking Oil of Sam The Cooking Guy, and honestly, Sam’s Love Letter to Avocado Oil nearly brought us to tears.

Perhaps it was fate that brought us together... We’re from San Diego, Sam’s from San Diego, and we both love insanely delicious, “I-can’t-believe-I-made-this-at-home” eats.

Why We Love Sam

First and foremost, he’s fun and easy-going. It's impossible to not like him. Watching Sam cooking at his backyard setup is like hanging out with an old friend. He’s cantankerous in a hilarious way that we love.

Now, onto his food. Sam’s a chill guy, but his food is so EXTRA in the best way. From jalapeño popper dogs and cheesy volcano rice (what?!), to more elevated recipes like, and quote, “a big fat dry-aged steak,” Sam’s recipe videos are sure to make your mouth water before you’ve even hit play.

What’s more, his food is amazing, but not highfalutin. Anyone can follow along with ingredients from a standard grocery store.
