It is said that the kitchen is the heart of the home, a place where food is cooked with love, friendships are formed and memories are made. We couldn’t agree more, and in fact, we at Eatwith think that our hosts’ kitchens are the best restaurants in town!

When we all set off on our travels around the globe, the one thing that we search for is great authentic food that we can dig our teeth into. Enter, our Eatwith hosts! Creating cozy spaces for travelers to come and relax and eat and learn, our hero hosts all have one thing in common: a passion for cooking and sharing their culture with others. So what do you think? How does opening your doors to fellow foodies and joining our global family sound?

If this sounds like a dream come true, there’s more! Not only do you get to share your passion for cooking and meet many interesting people along the way, but you can also turn this passion into a tasty side income! To hear about the benefits of using cooking to make money, here’s 8 reasons why you should become a host with Eatwith.

Share your passion and make dosh as a Eatwith host

1. Expand Your Friendship Group Exponentially!

When you host culinary events with Eatwith, you can be sure that you will meet countless travelers and foodies alike who each have different cultures, experiences and stories to tell. Ever wanted to travel to Asia or South America? Or are you just hungry for tales from these exotic places? Whatever your craving, hosting events where good food meets good company gets the conversation flowing and you might even meet a new travel companion!

Meet new people and create special bonds by hosting in small groups, then let the food do the talking! Events can be as simple as tacos, pulque, beer and mezcal!

2. Discover New Recipes

Feeding others and getting amazing feedback feels great, but you can also learn from your guests! Whilst sharing stories and your favorite local delicacies, why not swap recipes and get some exclusive local tips? That way you can wow your family and friends with new exotic dishes that your newfound friend taught you to make and be a master of all cuisines!

3. Make Your Culture Proud

As an Eatwith host, you are an ambassador for the cuisine of your country; you are the culinary mastermind and author of what story your food will tell. If you’re prepared to take on this mission, it is down to you to take your guests on an authentic culinary journey of your culture that they will never forget!

Nothing says authentic like traditional delicacies, but how about spicing things up with a surprise like this traditional Romanian dinner with a modern twist?

4. Earn by Doing Something You Love

Isn’t this the goal for all of us? To do all the things we love and earn a steady stream of income? With Eatwith, you can make this dream a reality! If you’re skilled in the kitchen, want to meet new and interesting people, or just want an outlet for the creativity that is building up inside you, becoming a host will satisfy all your needs while giving you some hard-earned cash for that next vacation!

5. Make Your Experiences What You Want Them to Be

One of the best benefits about hosting with Eatwith, is that you can do it all on your own terms. If you have a full-time job, a family, countless other hobbies or a busy social calendar, you have the flexibility to host as often as you wish. Control your schedule and earn as much or as little as you want.

You can even control who comes to your events and connect with guests online ahead of time! Hosting has never been made so easy, so whether you’re using Eatwith as a side-earner or as a full-time job, you’re free to make your experiences exactly what you want them to be.

6. Discover Every Part of You!

Do you have multiple interests or an old hobby that has been left behind? If you do, then Eatwith is the perfect opportunity to showcase everything that makes YOU amazing. Are you a culture buff with a love for history? Or do you secretly love to teach? Whatever your passions, combine them all by creating a cooking class, taking guests on a guided food tour, or even putting your own spin on local delicacies. The world is your oyster!

Food tours provide an amazing insight into a city, such as visiting the “Saint Charles” street market in Paris!

7. Hosting is Serious Fun!

As obvious benefits go, nothing is as obvious as hosting because it is fun! Imagine a designer from Paris, an aerospace engineer from Germany and a backpacker from Thailand all sitting around your table…sounds like the premise for a good joke right? Well, when the wine is flowing and the stories are being told, you can be sure that there will be many laughs in any evening that you host.

8. Be Part of Our Global Community
