Co-founders Reda Stare and Audra Pakalnyte are avid travellers and foodies that have strong passion discovering the world through the kitchen. The idea of starting PlateCulture was sparked through one of the conversations talking about best travel experiences. The most memorable experience is when one goes off tourist beaten track and heads to city suburbs, meets local people and enjoys real authentic local cuisine at somebodies house. Both founders had experiences dining at houses of the locals where what was served was a plethora of dishes that you don’t get to see at the restaurants menus. And it’s not only about the food; it’s like feeding a hungry soul. Meet new people and have real time learning about their everyday lives, traditions, problems, joys. Isn’t this brilliant – the breakdown of cultural barriers through authentic culinary experience and meaningful conversations?
PlateCulture was launched in June 2013 in Malaysia, has expanded to Singapore in August and recently to Thailand.
