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

    • Adam says:

      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!

  2. Alouise says:

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

  3. Mandy says:

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

    • Adam says:

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

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

  5. 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 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!

  7. Jessica says:

    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.

  8. Aryn says:

    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 says:

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

  9. Franca says:

    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 :)

  10. Edna says:

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

    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.

    • Adam says:

      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.

  12. Tom @ Waegook Tom says:

    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 says:

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

    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

    • Adam says:

      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!
