Update #2

Week 2 - Design Sponge, Fast Company & 190 backers!

Comment

Last week we started with a bang by raising over $4K on the very first day and got to celebrate with close friends at a launch party at Jennifer's apartment / Culture Kitchen headquarters (Pic Below - yes, that really is a wall of mirrors - gotta love the 70s).

Thanks to everyone who came out, feasted on a delicious homemade spread, and enjoyed good company!

.................................

THIS WEEK, we broke through the first $25K hurdle!!
190 of you have collectively pre-ordered kits totally over $26K - yesssss :)

We are excited to announce that you aren't the only ones who love Culture Kitchen. Word is spreading, prepare yourself.

This morning while getting our daily dose of inspiration on Design Sponge we saw that Grace and her team found some inspiration in Culture Kitchen. Great way to start our day!

A little later in the morning we saw Ariel Schwartz from Fast Company's Co.Exist piece about how Culture Kitchen grew from cooking classes to cooking kits in an effort to further spread culture through food.

Earlier in the week Food52, another food startup we LOVE, spread the word about our Kickstarter campaign to their amazing cooking community.

The stellar team over at Women2.0 posted Jennifer's write-up talking about the excitement and nerves that went into our big debut on Kickstarter.

Today is a good day.
We can't thank you all enough for your excitement and support. We are truly humbled by the growing community around ethnic cuisine to spread culture through food and motivated to bring you the most incredible out of the box cooking experiences possible.

You can see our vision. You are telling your friends. We can make this happen together. Thank you.

There's been a lot going on behind the scenes of our very small team of two working to get the word out about our campaign and preparing for our upcoming shipment. Moving forward, we'll be doing a better job of briefly updating you on our daily ongoings. It's a lot of hard work, but it's also a lot of good food and good company :)

Have you heard about this project where a community rallied in the last 4 days of the project to raise almost 50% of the project goal? Amazing. Inspiring. We really believe in the collective power of all our supporters and together we can and will reach our goal.

18 days to go!

Keep telling your friends, family, and everyone you know. Tell them why they should check out our project, why you pledged and why you believe in Culture Kitchen. Re-post on Facebook. Re-tweet out about our progress.

Let's get cooking together!
Abby & Jennifer
