My inspiration for this project comes from my mom who is a phenomenal chef and cooked three meals a day every day while I was growing up. I’ve learned from her how to cook food from Brazilian culture. Since I’ve moved out on my own and gone to college, cooking is something I’ve done to feel close to home and as a hobby and comfort. But, sometimes being a student is so hectic that I don’t have the time and wish I had my mom to cook for me. This is where Mamas comes in, a company that gives the opportunity for college students to get their home cooked meal, in whatever traditional cuisine they desire, whether that be their own culture or one they are interested in trying. There would be Mamas from each country or culture who can cook the traditional recipes for you. You can choose your meal plan and your cuisine and the mama will deliver it to your doorstep. The service would launch in cities with large universities. For this project, I cooked and photographed the food myself.
