In May 2020 during the height of the pandemic, Jonny Inglis (OA 2012) and his business partner Seb Evans, launched Banquist, a cooking education platform which teaches people how to cook.
On this website, customers can purchase a cooking course from a variety of options including pasta making, Indian Fusion or even a baking course for children. The length of the courses vary, but chefs who teach the classes are worldclass and typically hold a Michelin Star. Customers are sent a hamper of ingredients (for a three-course meal) and learn how to cook their chosen meals via a step-by-step video. Banquist aims to keep their course choices fresh and release a new line up of chefs each month so there is always something new to choose from.
Banquist generated £1m turnover in their first six months and have since raised over £1.6m and generated many positive reviews on Trustpilot. Congratulations to Jonny on his hard work and success.
