Who’s Oli Ashness?
Oli set up SimplyCook to get millions of people around the world cooking better food. In the UK, we only cook from a repertoire of 5-9 different meals despite recipes being the 2nd biggest search category on the internet. Having spent 2 years in VC at DFJ, Oli realised no recipe related company was trying to get people cooking at a price point we can all afford - so he set up SImplyCook.
You get a private dining experience with a knowledgeable speaker, 2 course dinner with wine plus highly curated and relevant networking.
P.S. TableCrowd are offering complimentary cab rides home (£15) thanks to their partner, Gett, on first download of the app. Download the app in advance.
