Mengting

Mengting is always on the lookout for new and interesting recipes and spends her free time scouring every American cookbook and blog for innovative and inspiring food creations. No stranger to her fellow millennials, she often tried other cooking apps, but was consistently disappointed with their usability and design. That’s when she and Verena came up with the idea of a cooking app.

Verena

Verena, the connoisseur, has always loved great food, but never felt fully comfortable in the kitchen. As a cooking novice, she found it too complicated to fight through endless descriptions, images, and tangled ingredients lists—only to arrive at a meal that looked and tasted nothing like the one described. The app she and Mengting invented was something she would’ve needed and loved during long hours in her student’s kitchen.
