The most authentic French dining experience may not be at a five-star restaurant, or even in a small village restaurant—it might just be sitting at the table with a real French family.
Introducting Voulez-Vous Diner, a website that aims to match hosts with potential dinner guests. Just like you would make a reservation at a restaurant, you can make a reservation with a local family. Meal costs are paid in advance through the site, so all you have to worry about when you get there is enjoying your meal and getting to know each other.
Potential hostsa are local people who love to cook and have a desire to exchange cultural knowledge and ideas. They welcome to you into their homes to share a moment of conviviality around the gastronomic tradition of the French meal.
Before booking, you can browse the dinner menu, read reviews from other guests, or contact the host with questions.
Suggested meals include a "visit to Montmartre with an artist after a bistro-style aperitif," a "comic book wine and cheese evening", or a "business lunch in Boulogne."
What better way could there be to experience real French cuisine, or what tastier way to practice your French? Bon appetit!
