‘Today we’re going to learn how to make paella. Not just paella. A good paella,” says Marta Amb Tu Cuinem as she address the 10 strangers who have gathered around the kitchen table in her Barcelona flat. The cheery space is filled with an array of students from various corners of the globe — a couple from Beijing, some Spanish exchange students, a Barcelona native, and several groups of Americans. On the table sits an array of various sized bowls housing the ingredients needed for today’s demonstration. Cuinem goes around the table and picks them up, one at a time, explaining how the head-on prawns, Montserrat tomatoes from the local La Boqueria market, and large rubbery cuttlefish will be essential to bringing her beloved dish to life.
The experience is part of a new culinary craze where tourists sign up to enjoy home cooked meals around the world. Cuinem’s class is hosted on http://www.EatWith.com, a popular website that pairs food-obsessed travelers with individuals that have an affinity for cooking their local faire. Currently, the opportunity is offered in more than 150 cities, including Tel Aviv, Chicago, Los Angeles, and Budapest, and allows foodies the chance to visit the home of a chef and sample local dishes of the region.
