About Eatwith

Eatwith is an online platform offering the world’s largest selection of culinary experiences and connecting foodies and travelers with local hosts from over 130 countries. Guests can attend all kinds of cooking classes and workshops from the comfort of their homes and invite friends to reconnect.

The platform was launched in 2014 by Jean-Michel Petit and Camille Rumani, who shared a common passion for authentic food and immersive tourism and decided to spread the magic of social dining with a larger community. With Eatwith, guests are invited to pull up a seat at a dinner party in an elegant Paris home, enjoy an Italian feast with a Roman family, take a cooking class in Tokyo, or marvel at the Manhattan skyline over a rooftop brunch. 

From home-cooks and food lovers to MasterChefs and Michelin-starred chefs, Eatwith hosts all share one special ingredient: a passion for bringing people together through food. Even though the pandemic has put most travel experiences on hold, Eatwith chefs are now broadcasting live from their homes around the world.

Today, Eatwith boasts an average rating of 4.9 (out of 5), as well as over 29,000 favorable reviews. Clients will enjoy an easy-to-use platform available in seven languages (English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Chinese, and Hebrew), which offers multilingual classes and customer support.

Guests can book an experience on Eatwith in three simple steps. First, they choose a destination, look through available events, and select the one they want to join. Next, they choose the dates and request to book so that the host receives a notification and confirms their availability. Finally, guests join the event.

Eatwith experiences include online cooking classes, workshops, and activities. An online cooking class is a step-by-step class led by a host in which guests follow a recipe and prepare ingredients together. An online workshop or activity isn’t centered around cooking and will be about discovering something new, whether it be a skill, custom, culture, or delicacy. For example, a sake tasting workshop with a host in Shinjuku or an Irish craft beer tasting with a host in Dublin.
