EatWith- The Uber and Airbnb of food

Essentially, EatWith works just like popular alternative accommodations site Airbnb. But where Airbnb connects travelers with cheap rental rooms and homes, EatWith helps you connect with hosts and attend pre-arranged dinner parties, from San Francisco to Paris and dozens of cities in between. The idea is to allow travelers to experience new cultures and food in an intimate setting, far from the usual tourist traps.

Each host is carefully vetted, and according to founders Guy Michlin and Shemer Schwarz, only about four percent of those who apply to host meals actually make it onto the site.
