The craving for good home-cooked food must be one of the most sure-fire routes to homesickness there is. Short of bringing your mum with you on every trip, this website may be a possible solution to restaurant fatigue. A service that pairs up hungry travellers with people around the world willing to cook for you in their homes, the website puts participants in touch to agree the date and time. The deal is that all dinners last two hours. There is a fee involved, but it really just covers costs.
