Something About Us

From the early days of testing our kukus in our own home kitchen to running a successful stall at Edinburgh’s bustling food markets, we have always been passionate about making delicious, healthy, and exciting food. Food that is going to help us save the planet.

Our kukus, inspired by a traditional Iranian recipe, are similar to a frittata – we bind fresh veg, herbs, Scottish rapeseed oil, and chickpea flour to bring you a product that is 100% yummy and good for you.

We are Planet Kuku!

Maria Janowczyk


A philosophy graduate, she makes sure Mat is well versed in ancient Greek. Maria also studied textile design and fashion, which is why our hand-crafted kukus both taste and look great. No kuku leaves our kitchen without Maria’s stamp of approval, and if you want to know what is the trendiest veg this season, Maria is your expert.

Mat Noniewicz


His passion for food and perfection is legendary, and so is his habit of inviting friends for dinner and making them watch his attempts at seaweed origami for hours. One day, Mat decided there had to be a better way to feed people and ditched the origami*. This is how Planet Kuku was born: a convenient approach to delicious ready-made meals like you have never tasted before. Now, Mat is all about great food and no fuss! *We still find seaweed animals all over the office
