Something that people can benefit from, something we can all be proud of

Around the World in 12 Dishes is a private initiative by Imogen Wells and Elespacio, who gave birth to the original concept. The project, however, wouldn't have been possible without the careful help of Lumenstudio and Marta Guasch-Ferré.
