Gourmicious - LogoHave you ever eaten a sweet potato toast with avocado sunny-side up egg? Do you like banana bread? And, most of all, have you ever tried to prepare these 2 gourmet & delicious foods as a personal chef hosted in the house of anybody?

The right answer to these questions is Gourmicious, a new platform created by Connekt Resources Inc that connects food and culture enthusiasts with those who love to host and cook. We had the possibility to ask few questions to Sude Z. Khanian, co-founder & creative mind under this interesting project.


Hi Sude, please tell us: what is Gourmicious exactly?

Gourmicious is a by-invitation platform that connects like-minded gourmet enthusiasts through unique dining experiences.
One of our users called it Meetup mixed with EventBrite. It is not exactly that, but we liked how he interpreted him.


Which are the main characteristics able to let be Gourmicious a unique & special product?

When we started Gourmicious, we thought that its uniqueness is in providing Private Gourmet Dining opportunities to try an authentic and home-cooked meal and meet new cultures.
During our beta testing, our test-group liked the opportunity but found some challenges. We listened to them and tried to address those challenges to make it a better experience for them.
Surprisingly, now what we considered as a supplementary amendment is what our users find special and unique about Gourmicious.
