Not all of us are lucky enough to make it home for the holidays.  Sometimes we are stuck in the city for business or whatever reason possible, and still want to do our best to enjoy the holidays to the best of our abilities.  For any last minute people out there who still don’t have set plans for tomorrow night, let me introduce you to this great initiative prepared by EatWith.

What is EatWith exactly?  EatWith is a global platform for home restaurants that brings local hosts, with a passion for cooking and entertaining, together with locals and travelers looking for an authentic and totally new dining experience. Connect with
 guests in a way that cannot be experienced at a restaurant.  By creating the first home-restaurant community, citizens of the world can use EatWith to gain access to local culture, and enrich their connection to a destination by eating with people in their home.

So essentially, EatWith is looking to make the experience that much more personable while keeping the environment lively and the food just as delicious as you would get in any of the top restaurants here in New York City.  There are two different events you can attend tomorrow night, with all of the proceeds going to La ConcinaLa Concina is a non-profit that empowers food entrepreneurs.

EatWith is also giving away a pair of tickets ($130 value) for another dining experience to 5 lucky winners!  Simply like EatWith’s Facebook page, tag a friend in comments, include #EatWith and the winners will be announced on Facebook and Instagram by the end of the week.

A Nigerian Inspired Thanksgiving – Eat with Zuhra

A note from the chef:  As a Classic Culinary Art student at the International Culinary Center, I started to create menus based on popular Nigerian dishes.  Here, I have a Nigerian Inspired Thanksgiving dinner that will take you on an exciting trip to Nigeria without taking you too much out of America. You will leave my table having learnt not only about our food, but also our cultures, traditions and our incredible diversity. I look forward to the privilege of showing you a part of my country through food.

A Little Paris in New York Thanksgiving Dinner – Eat With Simon

A note from the chef:  Thanksgiving may be an all-American holiday, but its traditional dishes lend themselves beautifully to French influences. With simple but elegant twists on the classic menu, a holiday meal becomes a transporting experience.

Happy Holidays Everyone!
