Culination: Caen Contee on Using Tech to Be Healthier

TC_Conversations_CaenContee

Caen Contee cares about food, but more importantly, he cares about your overall wellness. When it comes to food and wellness, the cofounder of Culination thinks that tech can play a crucial role in helping people pursue healthier lifestyles.

Contee found his passion for food while growing up in a small city in Brazil, helping out his mother and aunts with traditional Brazilian recipes. Later (terrible) experiences with food and unhealthy weight gain would eventually push him to pursue an interest in medicinal cuisine.

After graduating from Dartmouth, Caen Contee’s culinary interests led him to the kitchens of Gregoire Restaurant and Chez Panisse in Berkeley. Having considered a career as a chef, Contee ultimately turned towards his passion for food education.

Culination is an online community where people interact and learn how to cook. For Contee, the notion of “Tech Wellness” is this idea that we can use technology to communicate wellness on an individual level – something that Culination aims to do through its real interactions with chefs and cooks around the world.

Most recently, Culination secured over $20,000 through its Indiegogo campaign and is prepping for the review of its first video lessons.
