How Our Unique Process Delivers Your Needs


The Culinary Anthropology experience allows you to directly collaborate with forward-thinking chefs to accelerate innovation through creative ideation and rapid-prototyping in four proven effective steps.

    We start by aligning your needs and wants to correctly frame the challenge and clarify the opportunity we will fulfill together. 

    Culinary Anthropology Opportunity

    Next, we take the clear direction and focus determined in step one and leverage multiple proprietary techniques to determine a winning idea for a product concept. 

    Culinary Anthropology Ideation

    While certain answers can be found through market research, there is a limit. In this step we learn and validate the "unknown unknowns" that only can be found when your product is in the users' hands and being quickly iterated by our talented Chef Designers.

    Culinary Anthropology Rapid Prototyping

    In the final step you will participate in a unique experience featuring the validated prototype for a final tasting complete with the deep learnings from the process–achieving our ultimate goal of generating, capturing and delivering you value.
