    Previously this was host only but apparently after a recent patch this is now obtainable by everyone playing. (Thanks to Aura Battler for this info). You'll get this naturally if you're going for the other achievements. Below is a list of levels that unlock characters in case someone needs it. To unlock the chefs you only need to finish the level with at least one star.
    The chefs aren't named and the human chefs are difficult to describe in text, so for photo reference, visit here:

    World 1-2: Human chef
    World 1-5: Cat chef
    World 2-1: Human chef
    World 2-4: Human chef
    World 3-1: Human chef
    World 3-3: Raccoon chef
    World 3-5: Crocodile chef
    World 4-2: Octopus chef
    World 4-4: Human chef
    World 4-6: Human chef
    World 5-2: Eagle chef
    World 5-5: Cat chef
    World 6-2: Squirrel
    World 6-5: Robot
    Kevin 1: Human chef
    (Unlocked in world 1-3 by getting a combo of 2)
    Kevin 3: Human chef
    (Unlocked in world 2-4 by getting a score of 600 for solo or 1000 for co-op)
    Kevin 5 : Beaver chef
    (Unlocked in world 4-3 by getting a combo of 4 for solo or 5 for co-op)
    Kevin 7: Alien chef
    (Unlocked in world 5-5 by getting a combo of 5 for solo or 8 for co-op)

    CRT JEDIMARKThanks, but a list of the names of the chefs next to each level would have been a bit more helpful for me.

    NeonInVermontSame happened to me.
    I have compared to my g/f's account (she got the cheeve) and we both have the same chefs unlocked, except I don't have the achievement. And I have now beat the game twice, and another time gone to each specific level to meet the requirements for each chef. .................... Still nothing

    Aura BattlerBefore a patch, this achievement could only be unlocked by the host, but now, since the progress would save for all players even you are not the host, everyone can get the achievement at the same time if all players play after the patch.

    F4cileThat's great! I'll add it to the solution

    gobey17So I was the second person, my friend was the host. We 3-star and completed all the levels yesterday yet he got this achievement while I didn't. It's stuck on 94%.

    Is there any way to make it trigger? I've unlocked everything else fine as the second person and I only ever played this game a couple of days ago. Really don't want to play all through this again by myself. :(

    F4cileUnfortunately I don't know for sure what the problem might be. Have you checked that you have all the ones listed above unlocked? Also have you tried hosting the game and maybe playing a few levels? Hope you get it!

    gobey17Yes, went through the list and compared each cook with my friend and we've got the exact same ones. And tried playing a level with my friend and by myself on a level that would normally unlock a cook, but nothing sadly.

    It doesn't register a new cook unlocked when replaying levels, even on a new save file. I might try either doing the last level by myself, going through each level that unlocks cooks, or at worst delete all my save data. bleurgh :/

    Edit: Forgot to ever update this, but I pretty much had to delete my save and start from scratch and play up to where you would unlock the last cook. It sucks, but mainly you can do the bare minimum of getting one star to progress. So be aware that this may not unlock if you're the second player.

    GremlinLord615The "Beaver" chef listed above is actually a Molerat. There is a beaver in the DLC
