Hosts of home-cooked meals

Do you love to cook and want to host meals at your home?

Please contact us and tell us your nationality, what city and country you live in, and what type of African cuisine is your personal specialty.

We are strategic in how we select hosts, so we cannot promise that we can work with you. However, we will add you to our host database and will reach out when we reach the stage of host recruitment.
