Avoiding tourist traps can be a daunting task but a platform that lets you eat with locals is about to make your job a whole lot easier. 'EatWith', a website that connects you with local home cooks, aims to augment your cultural experience while travelling.

The website works by building a bridge between vacationers and entrepreneurial locals with a flair for the culinary arts. Travelers can choose a host from a list of residents willing to open up their homes. The host receives compensation at the adventurer's time of booking with EatWith receiving 15% of the fee. After the dinner party, guests can rate the host and comment with a warning or endorsement for future travelers.

EatWith's service was built after the founders discovered how wonderful connecting and eating with locals is. The urge to share their authentic experience brought EatWith to fruition.
