Earlier this year, we spoke with David Spinks, co-founder of online cooking education platform Feast, about how he planned to bring cooking education to the masses. At the time, the company was only a few months old and Spinks and his co-founder, Nadia Eghbal, had just started the 500 Startups accelerator program. Fast forward 6 months, and Feast has gained a lot of insights into what people actually want to learn and how they want to learn it. The team has realized that beyond culinary skills and step-by-step video recipes, users need more innovative content distribution to keep them coming back to the kitchen.
Last weekend, I had a chance to sit down with Spinks at The Future of Food Hackathon and Forum in San Francisco to learn more about Feast’s challenges, what his team has learned and what’s next on the horizon. If you haven’t read it already, you should also check out David’s guest post on getting the most out of your startup accelerator program here.
