Cookening connects people with locals through home-cooked meals

Posted by – April 16, 2014

Cookening is a platform that allows users to connect with people from different cultures by attending or hosting home-cooked meals. The startup provides a unique opportunity for travelers to experience authentic, local cuisine in the city they’re visiting, and for the hosts to meet new people. Cédric Giorgi’s initial thoughts started 2 years ago and some time later Cookening got founded.

Hosts are free to cook any meal they want to, but they first have to create a dashboard that includes information from their profile, photos of dishes they have cooked before, a list of the dishes that will be included (appetizer, main course, dessert, etc.), the location and photos of their home, and the cost of the meal.

Travelers can easily search available meals by the city that they are visiting. Once they find a meal, they can book it right on the Cookening website through its secure payment system, or message the host to find out more information. Cooks can respond to the messages and then choose to accept or decline a request. After the meal, hosts and guests can write a review to let users know about the experience they had through Cookening.

Posted by – April 15, 2014

All of Kiroco’s Jewellery contains an NFC chip which works when touched to the NFC readers in Android Smartphones, which then in turn launches the messages on a person’s piece of jewellery so that they can be viewed – whether a word, photo or video message.

With the exclusion of the K bracelet in white metal the rest of the ranges are made in sterling silvers with enamales, with some pieces containing Swarvoski Crystals or Cubic Zirconia.
