Calling All Culinary Foodies--- Those Who Love to Cook and Entertain....

Have you ever wondered what it'll be like to host like the French? Now you can...

I am delighted to announce that my blog has partnered with VizEat- a website for "culinary encounters" for people to offer, discover and book authentic meals at local homes around the world. For those looking to discover new cultures, meet new people and share unique moments around a meal as a guest or a host, Vizeat is the new platform to make possible this new "off the beaten path" way to travel. This authentic experience is largely adopted by the French, with 72% wishing to share a meal at a local home during their next trip and 55% willing to host travellers at their home around a meal according to a Toluna on-line survey conducted in France in May 2014. VizEat's free insurance covers both hosts and guests, with member profiles being validated every time, providing a peaceful mind on both sides to enjoy the experience.

If you like to meet new people from different walks of life and like to share a real moment around your home-cooked meal whether it be in your home, at a park for a picnic, in your cooking school or includes a local walk before coming back for tea and baked goods, it's up to you... Surveys in the UK and France show that for the guests, the key factor is first to meet authentic people and second to have a nice meal. How VizEat's concept works is as a host, you post your menu, set the price, and receive 100% of the price of the meal when you get a reservation. An additional user fee of 15% is paid by the guest when he books the meal. Why should travellers eat at a local restaurant when there's so much to gain from connecting and dining at yours?

Travellers are more and more interested to meet locals and learn about culture and food from the inside. What better way to have that mutual cultural exchange than with a proud meal you prepared and to showcase the genuine hospitality of your home and your country. Welcome!

If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact me via email or provide a comment here with your inquiries. Know someone who would love this experience, please pass it along....
