Casper is a sleep startup that launched with an outrageously comfortable mattress sold directly to consumers — eliminating commission ­driven, inflated prices. The critically­ acclaimed sleep surface was developed in-house by a team of product engineers with experience from IDEO and NASA, has a sleek design, and is delivered right to your door in a small, “how did they do that?” sized box.

Experiencing substantial growth, Casper now sells a sheet set, pillow, dog mattress, and foundation. Casper is expanding internationally and already launched in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, and the UK.

Casper was named one of Fast Company’s Most Innovative Companies in the World, and its eponymous mattress was crowned one of Time’s Best Inventions of 2015.

chefmartinmoralesPart 2 of a 2 part interview with Celebrity Chef, Martin Morales – Renaiscance Man – Martin Morales is the chef, founder and MD of Ceviche Soho, Ceviche Old St, Andina and Casita Andina, some of London’s best restaurants. Born out of the frustration of not having a great Peruvian restaurant in London he kick started Ceviche Soho. He is a Committee Member at Soho House, a Fellow of the Royal Society of the Arts and a Freeman of the City of Leicester. He was born in Peru, has lived in Mexico City and Barcelona and now lives in London with his wife and children. Martin is a self-taught chef since the age of 11, a restaurateur and entrepreneur and is passionate about Peruvian culture. Formerly Head of and Founder Member of Apple iTunes Pan Europe, Disney Executive Director and Board Member launching High School Musical, Miley Cyrus and Pirates of the Caribbean, a globetrotting DJ playing in Rio, Marrakesh, Moscow, Tokyo and New York, an EMI Label Head signing KT Tunstall, Oi Va Voi and Koop, an event promoter for concerts by James Blunt and others as well as his own Global Kitchen where he DJ-ed and cooked at the same time.

His team includes executive chef Vitelio Reyes, a Venezuelan Peruvian food nut who has embraced Peruvian cuisine under Morales’ tutelage. There’s also operations director Raquel de Oliveira, David Buxton leading finance, and Philippe Hails-Smith, a partner at Joelson who was involved from the initial capital fundraising and not to mention Soho House Group’s Martin Kuczmarski as non-executive director. “I’m lucky to have so many mentors. They have great belief in what we are doing and they have stuck their necks out for me,” says Morales. “Professionalism, leadership and a strong ethos of fairness in the workplace are crucial to us, but we are a restaurant first and foremost – it’s all about the food we cook.” Morales is a Morales is a great marketeer – and even though he freely admits he’s not a professional chef (his love of cooking stems from helping his Aunt Carmela in the kitchen as a child), that hasn’t stopped him from appearing no fewer than three times on the BBC’s Saturday Kitchen. “Vitelio is very much the executive chef, not me – though I am the co-creator of many of our dishes,” he explains.

I am all about MRS, Multiple Revenue Streams, so is Martin, he is not just an ambassador of Peruvian food, but of Peruvian culture and arts!

We also talk about the hub and business model. Food is at the hub of what you do but this is then interlinked with art, creativity and even music.

Talking about Books, I have your book: Ceviche Peruvian Kitchen, I believe it remained in the top 10 cookbooks on Amazon since it was published by Random House and was voted The Sunday Times Cookbook of the Year in 2013.

WELL DONE!

Season 3 – Episode 11: The 2nd Longest Serving Member of the Eden Family of Caterers – Nick Mead

nick meadNick Mead The 2nd longest serving member of the Eden family talks Eden Caterers and more only on the show.
Nick and team have been creating stylish, scrumptious and sustainable food since 1993.Across all three parts of the business, Eden’s commitment to sustainability and the environment goes beyond the lip-service many companies pay to green issues. Indeed, they won the ‘Independent Sustainable Caterer of the Year’ award, at the Food Legacy Awards ceremony. When we meet Mead he is open about his job, company and to answering the listeners letters. Mead came to catering after years as a youth football coach (he worked for Spurs, despite being an Arsenal fan, he tells me regretfully). There are now 27 full-time employees, as well as hundreds of temporary staff hired through Off to Work and other agencies. The Waterloo premises are stretched to capacity: there’s an industrial kitchen on site, with all the extras that requires; as well as an office space and an upstairs staff room, complete with pool table.Eden’s buyers also try to shop locally, using hens from Gloucester and beef from Essex, and they stick to a seasonal list of ingredients across the company. Find out about his mind set, habits, mantras and more here.
