Our Team

Being a developer I realized there are so many places where a developer can show his/her coding skills. Almost everyone on the planet cooks. Even if it is boiling an egg. It is a real skill and there is no place to show this skill. Showing your skill makes you happy. I like to make people happy Show the world your cooking skills. is a platform where users can make profiles and show their cooking skills. It is both a social network and a professional network for cooking enthusiasts 

People Love to cook and take pictures and videos of their cooking

Khal has grown extremely fast in less than 6 months.

There is currently no place dedicated to show your cooking skills

People use social network sites to add their cooking pictures. But none of these sites can be used as a repository of their cooking profile. These profiles get mixed with food photographers who take pictures with food or others who just add food pictures from the internet . You can often see people asking in the comments. "Did you make that ?", a dedicated cooking profile
