We love food. And we love cooking together with others because we know that gastronomy can bring people closer in a way that few other activities can.
So, we created AVEQIA to offer relationship-building gastronomical meetings of the highest possible quality.
Normally one would gather clients and colleagues around a meal at a restaurant. However, at a restaurant it can be difficult to converse with people other than those that are placed immediately next to you, making it feel rather passive at times. Interactive cooking on the other hand suits everyone, regardless of season, weather and clothing. AVEQIA is a top-class restaurant as well as a social event.
Our founder David Berggren coined the term “Active cooking” back in 1999, in English we call it “Interactive Cooking”. Now, like then, it is all about an event where people can meet, cook a high class meal and simultaneously build and develop their relationships. Interactive cooking is not a cooking class but a way to socialise in a relaxed environment with food as the conduit.
The name AVEQIA takes its inspiration from Roman times, as the Romans were legendary gourmands who truly knew how to enjoy food and wine. “AVE” was used to greet people and welcome them. “Q” stands for “Quorum” which was the number of selected people in a decisionmaking body, “I” for “Inspiratio” – inspiration, and “A” for “Accubo”, which simply means “to the table”!
We extend our very warmest welcome to AVEQIA!
