Food lovers to sample dishes around the world
Website Dinneer is selecting Brazilians to travel and taste food made by its registered users. The route includes the United Arab Emirates.
São Paulo – Dinner sharing company Dinneer (www.dinneer.com) will select two Brazilians to travel the world eating at strangers’ homes. The route will span 44 countries, including the United Arab Emirates. Applicants are required to be cuisine experts, and registration will be open until June 11.
Dinneer has announced that requirements for candidates include enjoying cooking, being willing to eat any type of food, being available to spend a few months travelling, performing well on camera, being a good host, enjoying writing, being adventurous, being on social media, and being very outgoing.
The website connects people who love to cook at home with people looking for a non-restaurant gastronomic experience. Users pay to dine at a host’s house. Dinneer is part of a new generation of shared economy companies, such as Airbnb, whereby people have tourists over to their homes.
The two selected foodies will travel to the countries covered by the website, with expenses paid for, and rate their Dinneer-registered hosts. Countries include South Africa, Norway, Germany, Angola, Argentina, Canada, Bolivia, Scotland, Spain, Netherlands, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Malta, Nigeria, Venezuela, Poland, New Zealand etc., among others. The only Arab country is the UAE.
Registration is open to Brazilians living anywhere in the world. The dinner sharing site was created by a Brazilian, Flavio Estevam, and the bulk of users are Brazilian expatriates who miss the food, as well as those who cook and wish to meet fellow countrymen who live in the same city as them.
During the trip, the two people picked by Dinneer will also make a documentary on Brazilian food, and the particularities of each country’s culture. The film will air on a TV channel, according to Dinneer.
