the world's kitchens!

Nowadays, there are plenty of sources out there to give you good guidance on the places to visit. But what you cannot find in these guides is, "a taste of life." In other words; what it is really like to live a real life there. KitchHike will help you "eat local" - by connecting you to real people, who will invite you into their home ("Kitchen") and give you a taste into a slice of their real life.
