According to a survey conducted by Kitchen Stories in 2019, 30.52 percent of the United States (U.S.) citizens used to dine out a few times per month. From the study, it also emerged that slightly more than 24 percent of the respondents stated that they ate out several times a week during the period considered. Because restaurants routinely serve food with more calories than people need, dining out represents a risk factor for overweight, obesity, and other diet-related chronic diseases.
Homie cook is an application designed to let home chefs sell home-cooked meals directly from their homes. This will also give people a healthier option when ordering out. This application has integrated with UBER EATS which will be responsible for all deliveries.

Task A Buyer:
I would like to see how you walk through placing an order.
Task A Chef:
Imagine you are a chef using this app for the first time. Imagine you want to set up your profile first with recipes so that your customers know what food you know how to make. Imagine you want to add a recipe
Task B Chef:
Imagine there was a database where all ingredients are connected to prices.
We expected to find out if users understood the flow of the app.
Our hypothesis was validated. We said that users would use this app the buy/sell home-cooked meals and the users we tested all agreed that this is what they would use the app for.
