Not sure if anyone has heard of Urban Chef - it's sort of like Airbnb for chefs. You put up a profile with your menu and etc., and people visiting can book a meal with you at your home, getting a nice and immersive experience while chefs who aren't working in restaurants can make a living despite the competitive job market out there.

Is anyone here interested? So far it's very popular in Italy and Spain.

It's a nice idea but I'd be terrified of going to some stranger's house to eat their food. I mean, it really doesn't appeal!

For me a restaurant meal is as much about the experience of eating out as the food. It's the atmosphere which makes a good dining experience and going to some random person's house could be so awkward!

Unfortunately it is far from Airbnb. There is no price, You have to request from each people and wait for a reply. That s bizarre. There is no geo tagging. You say Barcelona but you see only Italians. Website is useless but idea was good. It is no way practical to use it.

Have to agree with MisterDuck. It almost seems like a stupid or dangerous idea. When you go to a restaurant, they have health and safety regulations to help ensure that the food served is safe to eat. Also I'm sure the atmosphere in a complete stranger's house would be extremely awkward.

Getting murdered is probably also a thing.
