What's this all about then?
We are Tom, Heman and Will, three friends united by a love of watching cooking videos and messing about in the kitchen. We're launching Screen to Plate to take the hassle out of cooking by providing you with the ingredients you need to create the recipes you love.
Tom had the initial idea for Screen to Plate through a somewhat unhealthy obsession with watching YouTube cooking videos. He's always loved to eat adventurous, authentic food, and in his late twenties, he eventually started learning how to cook it. Since then, he’s
wasted countless hours cultivated his time reading recipe books and watching cooking videos on the internet, always looking for new meals to salivate over and fun, innovative ways of setting off his fire alarm.
Hold on lads, I've had an idea...
Unfortunately, it’s not always been easy for Tom. Quite often, he’d struggle to get a hold of the more esoteric ingredients in just the right quantities. He’d trek across London to buy huge bags of spices he’d only use a few times a year.
Wouldn’t it be great, he thought, if there was one place where you could get the right ingredients for these specific recipes, in the exact quantities you need? Turns out there wasn’t one, so that was a shame.
Eventually, a plan began to form in Tom’s mind. Over many drinks and meals, Tom persuaded fellow food-loving friends - Himanshu “Heman” Ojha and Will “Will” Lee - to get on board.

Together, they're launching Screen to Plate into the world...
