I discovered something new last week.... and am excited to share it with you today!
I've often mused how fun it would be to cook for people in my spare time. I love food! I love cooking. I love having people over for dinner..... "maybe I can set up my own business!" I thought, like the wannabe entrepreneur I am. "Set up a "Vegan to Your Table" business where I go and cook people dinner! Or have them to my place for a vegan feast! That's genius!"
Little did I know - I don't have to start up my own business because it already exists and if, like me, you had no idea what VizEat is - I'm here to tell you!
If you have a passion for cooking, hosting dinner parties, entertaining, but don't want to run off and become a chef - your platform is here in the brilliance of VizEat. (You can now throw that Come Dine With Me application in the bin...)
VizEat is an online community I only just discovered and don't know how I've been without it so long. It is like Come Dine With Me - but no cameras and no competition: just good, old fashioned hospitality with interesting guests from around the world.
VizEat works on many levels - for example: you can use it as a "guest" and organize to have meal with someone from the community (perfect for when you're traveling!) It works for wannabe chefs like myself, who love hosting and want to cook for people all the time and share lovely meals. Best of all, it's great for meeting new people from around the world. Food is traditionally all about sharing, community and bringing people together. I love that there is a safe, online community that is built on bringing people together to share a meal.
I have just joined VizEat as a "Host", so for anyone reading this who is coming to Manchester anytime soon - you can totally COME TO MY PLACE FOR DINNER!
What is VizEat?
VizEat is still fairly new and gathering momentum! If you've ever used Airbnb before - it's like that - but with FOOD! Food, glorious food.
VizEat brings together hosts (from all over the world!) who are happy to open their home for a meal with a guest (or a group) at a time/date you've organized together. You register as a "Host", set up your profile, upload a few "Meals" that you are willing to cook and set a price. You can also go on as a guest and find a lovely host to share a meal with from anywhere around the world.
Pretty cool, huh?
This appeals to me on many levels and I'm so excited to join VizEat. I love cooking (obviously), I love meeting new people and being social and I love the idea that when I next travel (can that be soon, please?) I can have at least one meal with a host from VizEat. I am currently (I believe) one of the only Vegan hosts on the website - so let's go drum up some support for the Vegetarian/Vegan world on there and show that there is high demand for Veggie food out there ;)
Go and have a look around and JOIN THE COMMUNITY! It's honestly so much fun and you only have something to gain.
Want to Come to Mine for a Vegan Feast!?
Oh yeah - I know you do!
Come put my culinary skills to the test :) I love having guests over in my quaint little Manchester flat. I'm still building up my profile, but am having a ball doing so.
