Kora is building a community around food

Whichever side of the kitchen you belong to, we believe this creates a win-win for everyone

I'm a host


I'm a cook

Kora is my aspiration to make homemade food easy and accessible in the busy life I live. This means more time for family and friends, and doing things we love, while nourishing our body and mind with tastes and flavors of home.

Kora provides a platform for me to share my experience and talent in cuisines and diets with those seeking them, while gaining the opportunity to make money doing what l love, when I want.

The journey so far...

Feb-May 2019

Within the first 24 hours of our facebook post asking for test participants in Kora, we received



       20 host applicants


40 Cookings

8 Families

5 Cooks 

The hours clocked on WhatsApp connecting families, planning menu, and facilitating the cooks' arrival made us numb and we agreed this was a SCALE challenge, not SUPPLY or DEMAND.

apr-oct 2019

       We brainstormed, debated, and then some more. We sought advice from our resident tech Yoda, friends, family... and anyone who was willing to give us their ear). "Can Kora be SCALED?"
