Share A Meal Experience with Wayan and his family from Bali
Lunch 1PM (CEST) @ Wednesday May 27th
Om suastiastu, my name is Wayan from the beautiful island nation of Indonesia.
I live with my wife and two young daughters in a Balinese compound in Bangli, which lies in the heart of Bali. I have always had a passion for food and love to share our diverse and traditional Balinese cuisine with people from around the world. In Balinese cuisine, we use a wide variety of herbs, which also act as a type of traditional medicine, which grows in the wild surrounding our community. We would love to share a meal with you and teach our culinary traditions and in turn, would love to hear more about your story and special culinary traditions as well!
Share A Meal Experience with Kuldip and his family from India
Breakfast 8.30AM (CEST) @ Monday May 25th
Namaste, my name is Kuldip Gadhvi. And I was born and raised in Bhuj, in the state of Gujarat, which lies in West India. The area that I live in, known as Kutch, is recognized for its unique customs, traditions, faith, beliefs and most interesting of all - the people's harmonious existence with their cattle. Through my life experiences, I have become very passionate about sharing my love and knowledge of Kutch and as a result, started hosting and guiding people from around the world through our region. I would love to share a meal with you to hear more about your culture and also tell you more about my story, culture, and cherished traditions!

Hi, I am Benjamin and I am from the bustling city of Nairobi, Kenya. I am passionate about facilitating cross-cultural understanding and learning more about other cultures from around the world. One way that I do this is through a local community organization that I established, which is focused on empowering local people within Kibera, which is one of the largest informal settlements in Africa. I would love to share a meal with you and exchange life stories, talk about our cultures, our culinary delicacies, and much, much more!

Nepal has a distinguished cuisine that is full of flavor. A lot of people fall in love with the Nepali food.

Share A Meal with Lalo from Oaxaca, Mexico
Dinner 6PM (CEST) @ Thursday May 28th
I hope I don’t offend you when I say when you Dutchies don’t know how to make
a taco. Worse, you don’t even know what it is! You think a taco is this curved hard shell, that you buy in the supermarket in a packet of 10. I’d love to share with you how to make authentic, delicious, Mexican fish tacos and
share some of my culture with you. Join my online class!
My name is Eduardo Vera (or Lalo, as they commonly call me over here), I’m a chef and I work together with Hotel con Corazón, a social enterprise and Dutch initiative in Oaxaca, in the South of Mexico. To find out more about me, check my Instagram:
