As most of you know, I took some months off to explore the world of food and to figure out whether there's a space for me in there, professionally. And I came to the conclusion that there is. It will be a long way, many obstacles, I believe quite some opportunities and a lot of fun.
I don't plan to become a cook. I believe for the same reasons I never had the slightest intend to become a DJ, even though I started my own radio years back and played some songs. I find it boring to entertain people, it's basically not for me. I don't want to serve people something and even worse try to please them, I want to enable them to do their own thing.
My goal is to get people into home cooking. Not to cook fancy dishes, but to make food for themselves, their friends and families. Every day. Simple dishes, with seasonal and regional produce that are well affordable.
With this motivation I started Good Food. For Everybody. Now well into the seventh edition I'm currently working on getting away from the very simple Squarespace page. It worked well in the beginning, but now I simply need more flexibility and possibilities. I hope for it to become a space where people find inspiration regarding food and cooking and some helpful tips. There's a lot of work to do, but I believe it's worthwhile!
But I'm even more excited about another next step: kwiri. kwiri will be basically a highly connected database around food. It will power the website, but hopefully much more in the future. One first step is going to be a very first iOS application, which will hopefully find it's way into the app store in the not too far future. (Thanks Ullrich for helping me build it and thanks Johannes for making already a first start some months ago!)
There are so many things to do and to be figured out in terms of what to build, not even mentioning on how to finance the project. But I'm super excited and made already a 5 year plan :)
The next update will be about the launch of kwiri. And if you are interested in food, capable of coding, designing, cooking, writing, taking pictures or anything else and have too much time, ping me!
