    Adam, what a great idea. I am doing some research into social travel networking through the likes of Couchsurfing (or meal surfing!). I would be very keen for anyone who has used this type of concept, to share their experiences. Contact me through Twitter: @LiezlHesketh or via email

      Hi Liezl, I’m sure you could reach out to the Meal Sharing folks directly and they could help you out with your social travel networking project.

      Good luck and bon apetite!

    This sounds (and looks!) fantastic!!! I adore food, and love CouchSurfing, so the two together? Perfect! Although as I type, my host here in Williamsburg is preparing a mushroom risotto with pisco sours to drink!

    • Adam

      Let me know if you try it out Tom! I loved the idea as much as I love CouchSurfing as well!

  5. that caprese salad looks so yummy! my friend and i got really lucky when we couchsurfed, and our host not only showed us around italy but also cooked us a couple meals!

    mealsharing sounds pretty awesome. since i recently started cooking, i am always wanting people to come be my guinea pigs.

      Yeah, I’ve found some of my CS hosts to be very kind as well and often share meals with them. I really like the concept for Meal Sharing though where it’s not centered around staying with a person, but just meeting people over meals/food.

  6. O.m.g. I love Couchsurfing and I love food. This is kind of perfect. Thanks for the heads-up, Adam!

      Happy to share it Edna! Let me know if you end up participating…

  7. What a great idea! Before traveling I’ve always liked having friends around for dinner, cooking together and sharing new tasty meals. The fact that now it would be possible to do it while traveling sounds awesome to me.
    Need to sign up right now! Thanks Adam for spreading the word :)

      Glad to hear it Franca!! I love having dinner parties myself.

  8. This is a great idea! I just recently couchsurfed with a man from Turkey who made me lots of home cooked meals and it was amazing. I loved the cultural exchange!

    • Adam

      That sounds like an awesome experience in Turkey, Aryn! Definitely agree that food allows for some of the best cultural exchanges :)

  9. I completely love this! I think I will be creating an account. I’ve done this kind of thing with friends before, and the idea of connecting with other travelers this way is really wonderful. It gives me global community warm and fuzzies.

  10. This is an excellent idea! I’m going to check it out, especially because I’ll be starting my own travels soon as I head over to teach English in Spain in about 6 months! Thank you Adam!

  11. Hmmm… there was a site like that a few years ago – very similar, no money involved, just a site where you could find folks all over the world that would have you over for a home-cooked meal. Shoot, I even joined and put up a profile.

    I don’t know if it’s still around, as I’ll be darned if I can remember the name of it. In any case, yes, a great concept – hope it takes off and flourishes.

    This is great! I just created a profile too, i love the idea!

    • Adam

      Glad to hear it Rebecca. Guten appetit!

  13. Yes, what a simple but brilliant idea! I hope this will pick up and more people join. Looking for some meals in Morocco… :)

    • Adam

      Hope you find something in Morocco – you could always start hosting and see if it catches on

  14. Traveling, meeting people, and enjoy a good meal – that sounds pretty fantastic to me. I’ll have to check out that site.

    • Adam

      Let me know if you end up joining an event Alouise!

  15. Wow. Ridiculously excited to try this out. Need to acquire a kitchen first. But then, I’m having meals every night!

    • Adam

      The kitchen is required to host, but see if you can join someone else’s meal and then you don’t really need the kitchen. Bon apetite Sarah!
