Modern Cooking is Social

At Modern Cooking, we believe that cooking and eating food brings people together and helps us to be more social. Founded in 2014, our goal is to create an online resource that will make it easier for everyone to cook smarter, better and more efficiently. We have a kitchenware shop, a cooking school and an encyclopedia of ingredients and we are working on much more.

Our cooking school is designed to provide inspiration and resources to help you cook smarter, develop new skills and understand new techniques that will making cooking more enjoyable and relaxing. Our kitchenware shop will provide you with access to tools and ingredients that we think will make cooking easier and more interesting.

The Modern Cooking team is based in Europe and the UK and is made up of a group of professional chefs, photographers, writers, data scientists and engineers. We are diverse in skill, but we all have one thing in common we love cooking, food and eating together. Join us for your next meal and let’s cook together.

Modern Cooking is Responsible

Life is not just about people. It is about living in harmony with nature. We believe that to do this we must live according to natures cycles (seasonal eating). To simply consider our short time on the earth is not enough; we must consider the health and prosperity of the environment that will be home to future generations.

We don’t have all the answers and we are not perfect, but we aim to continue to grow our understanding of how to interact with nature and how to live truly sustainable lifestyles. This idea is a guiding principal throughout our platform and its influence can be seen in our Seasonal Ingredients Database and other elements of the Cooking School and even throughout our product range.
