Web: Part of having an authentic experience when you travel is seeing how locals really live, including what they eat. EatWith helps you find local hosts, who range in experience from at-home cooks to professional chefs, who want to cook you a memorable meal while you visit their city. EatWith has hosts in over 150 cities worldwide, although some cities have more hosts than others so your options vary depending on where you go. You can filter out dining events by date, cuisine, event type (cooking class, dinner, cocktail party) and venue (someone's home, outdoors, close to the city centre) to find offers that fit the kind of experience you want.
Besides meeting the host and getting a taste for local life, you'll probably meet other travellers, since most of the events are group dinners. When choosing between events, you can see the proposed menu, location, profile of the host and ratings from past attendees so you get an idea of what you're paying for. This kind of experience isn't for everyone, but if you're interested in meeting both locals and other travellers on your next holiday, EatWith is a low-effort way to do so.
