The Parchment Experience


A time-honored tradition, from France to your home

From preparation to presentation – and everything in between – Culinary Parchment will add an element of simple sophistication to any meal. Whether it’s cooking something as basic as bacon and eggs or preparing an elaborate multi-course dinner, parchment paper’s application extends far beyond simply protecting your cookware.

Perhaps best known for its use in the classic French “en papillote” style, parchment paper has a long history as a technique for creating refined and sumptuous food. This simple yet elegant culinary tradition infuses the meats, vegetables and herbs together creating unparalleled flavor and richness.

Oven safe to 425°F, Culinary Parchment’s line of non-stick products, including Cooking Bags, Baking Cups and Multipurpose Paper, not only seals in nutrients, but enhances the food’s natural flavors while virtually eliminating the need for synthetic cooking sprays and high-fat oils.

A healthier you, a healthier environment

PaperChef products are made of the finest materials all compostable and biodegradable and since our boxes do not use a serrated metal cutting edge, like plastic wrap or aluminum foil, the boxes are completely recyclable as is.

PaperChef products are Forest Stewardship Council certified FSC® C017242. FSC is an international non-profit organization that supports and promotes the environmentally appropriate management of the world’s forests.

Even though recycling is a large part of living a green lifestyle, paper can only be recycled up to seven times before the molecules become too degraded to use again. Therefore, PaperChef strongly believes that using FSC® C017242 certified responsibly harvested forests is an important element of producing a product that truly is environmentally friendly.
