True enthusiasts of entertaining at home will be enticed by Cookening. This is a fresh online community for people who love to prepare food and share food––it's for those whose happiness is fed by bonding with different people with overlapping interests.

To get involved, you create profile on the Cookening website, setting you up to be either a host or a guest for potential online-arranged dinner parties. Should you choose to play chef, publish your "table" on the site, including photos and descriptions of the dishes you will serve. Potential eaters can browse for these intimate events based on cuisine and a listed price per head. General invitations, effortless requests and discretionary acceptances bring strangers together to share home-cooked meals.

Cookening is a clever platform that brings tangibility to virtual connections. It's concepts like this that encourage the wonderful physical-world and very "human" interactions to exist within the cyber sphere.
