Hi! 

We are Mat and Marysia and we run Planet Kuku! From the early days of testing our kukus in our own home kitchen to running a successful stall at Edinburgh’s bustling food markets, we have always been passionate about making delicious, healthy, and exciting food. Food that is going to help us save the planet. Our kukus, inspired by a traditional Iranian recipe, are similar to a frittata – we bind fresh veg, herbs, Scottish rapeseed oil, and chickpea flour to bring you a product that is 100% plant based, yummy and good for you!

Marysia

A philosophy graduate, she makes sure Mat is well versed in ancient Greek. Maria also studied textile design and fashion, which is why our hand-crafted kukus both taste and look great. No kuku leaves our kitchen without Maria’s stamp of approval, and if you want to know what is the trendiest veg this season, Maria is your expert.

Mat 

His passion for food and perfection is legendary, and so is his habit of inviting friends for dinner and making them watch his attempts at seaweed origami for hours. One day, Mat decided there had to be a better way to feed people and ditched the origami*. This is how Planet Kuku was born: a convenient approach to delicious ready-made meals like you have never tasted before. Now, Mat is all about great food and no fuss! *We still find seaweed animals all over the office!

We have built our business from scratch! 

Starting at our 2 bedroom flat, moving to a shared commercial kitchen (big shout out to Ali!!!) we were going from strength to strength! In January 2020 we decided to take a huge step and create our own, big ass, kuku dedicated kitchen so we could take over the world!!! But... we all know what happened in March 2020... Sadly we had no choice but to close our just opened kitchen. We reopened in July 2020, but with all the business that we have lost to Mr C19, things became a little bit tough for us. We have managed to survive, but we really need your help now! We have an amazing big kitchen but due to all these 'unprecedented times" we have never managed to use it's full potential. We need walk in fridge, walk in freezer, large oven and large blast chiller! This will allow us to deliver our delicious 100% plant based kukus to all of you all around the world!!!
