Traveling Spoon makes tourists traditional home-cooked meals
The Airbnb of international cuisine
TRAVEL Traveling Spoon
Traveling Spoon was created by two avid globetrotters, Stephanie Lawrence and Aashi Vel, who were looking for a way to make connecting to culture and experiencing the authentic flavors of a country streamlined.
“When I went on a family vacation to China, in some ways, it was this negative traveling experience because it was so touristy,” Lawrence told Moneyish. “We’d eat in these huge hotel banquet halls with other tourists. I felt so disconnected from the culture.”
Traveling Spoon is active in 110 cities across 44 countries and has dished out more than 1,000 different dining experiences and counting. Tourists are connected with vetted locals who can offer at-home meals, cooking classes, and grocery market tours. Most experiences cost around $60 per person but can vary based on the meal.
Whether you want to eat freshly rolled dumplings in China or to learn about the traditionally rich dishes of Argentina, Traveling Spoon will take your palate on a trip around the world.
