Eatwith - dine with locals

Jump to last reply

It has been years since I posted to this board, and I hope everyone is doing well.

Way back in the day there was always lots of discussion of getting the local experience, and a lot of people mentioned wishing they knew someone when they visited a place. Some of my friends in Barcelona are hosts for a really interesting program called EatWith: http://www.eatwith.com/

Basically, you book a meal at someone's home, and they cook for you. I have only heard stories from hosts, but what I have heard is really positive. My example are my friends Mónica and Manu who have a centrally located apartment in Barcelona. Just getting inside to see the original tile work on the floor, and enjoying the view of their interior patio would be worth it, but having food by Mónica (my ex-housemate, who I can confirm is an excellent cook) makes it totally worthwhile.

So, if you are looking for a local experience, check it out. I have not lived in Barcelona since 2008, but every time I go back I find the restaurant scene to be a little too much of a scene, and a home dining experience sounds like it would be excellent.

Happy trails to all of you!
Claire
