Kavita Goodstar on Food on Point Podcast

Our theme this month is called “Innovating Kitchen & Work Culture” and we’re hanging out with food concept innovator Kavita Goodstar (@kavitagoodstar), best known for launching internationally popular concepts such as Street Food Thursday  (@markthalleneun), Burgers ‘N Hip Hop, Mother’s Mother and Kebabistan. Each having contributed to putting Berlin on the international culinary map in their own right, Kavita’s ventures have always been about identity and culture with regards to cuisine. Today her work tackles diversity and representation in gastronomy spaces, questioning power structure norms in the culinary business sphere. We chat about her goals behind her concepts then and now and what we all need to do to make our food businesses more diverse, self-aware and equal.
