Vizeat

VizEat is gourmet travellers favorite app. “Go for immersive food experiences with locals in 100 countries! Visiting Madrid? The best paella is waiting for you at Marco’s. A weekend in Rome? Learn how to cook real lasagna at Lucia’s. A layover in New York? Sip a mojito on Mickael’s rooftop!” Sounds good, hah? I need to be honest here, I never tried this live, but I promised to myself that once I’m back in Rome, I will use this, as it’s the best way to get to know new people and amazing home made Italian food and recipes.
Rated an average of 4.9/5 by travelers, 20 000 local hosts put the spotlight on specialties of their city, traditional recipes and fun… Do not miss a thing : enjoy an unforgettable culinary and human experience!

How it actually works:
– Select your destination or choose the option “Around me”
– Discover our hosts’ experiences or let us inspire you with our top lists: cooking classes, market tours , secret places, brunchs, dinners…
– Exchange with your favorite host and book your food experience
– Share an authentic and convivial moment: Your best travel memory starts now!

“Total change of scenery… An absolutely excellent Italian dinner, served by an exceptional host in an unusual location. Impeccable price-performance ratio: Something new that should not be missed under any circumstances.”

“An unbelievable evening. Six strangers at the table, but the impression that they’ve always known each other, like an evening with friends. We dined amazingly well, drank awesome cocktails and didn’t even realize how time was passing.”

Sounds convincing, hah? 🙂
