The Seasoning Ingredient - The Secret Recipes Of Chefs. 

***Updated Award******

You never know until you know, in less than 7 days I have got this project of the ground, now I just need your support to take off in flight. The feedback has been awesome and has led me to offer a new AWARD. 

I am so passionate about food, but also flavour and spices, and quite interestingly most cultures have very similar herbs and spices but how they use them can be as alien to one culture as it is to the next. 

This monthly subscription service will provide a platform for upcoming Chefs to engage with a wider audience but also a chance for new products and brand to do the same thing. Foodies and budding chefs will receive the exact quantities of seasoning and condiments needed to cook an up 3 - 4 recipes per month. Each subscription box comes with a digital video detailing how to cook the Chef's meal of choice. 

The vision would be to have continuous subscriptions which enable the company to grow and be a known as the go to Seasoning Subscription Service. The Chef will be given the platform needed to widen their audience and share creative culinary skills. New products and brands who wish to engage with a foodie audience will be able to provide samples and gain the valuable feedback needed from consumers. The customer will have a personalised app to provide ratings for new food products, they will gain points which provide rewards and free month subscriptions. 

50% of all profits will be used to deliver cooking class to under privilege children in the community by the Chef who has showcased their ingredients.  

Initial funds will go to the direct costs of branding and marketing, creating the database of new subscribers and profiling the Chefs to create the first 12 months of menus and seasoning boxes. 

Thank you so much in advance for taking the time to read about my business idea, I am really looking forward to the this journey. I hope you are too.
