Executives tired of collecting passport stamps without learning anything about the countries they are visiting have a new option for getting some authentic local flavor: meal sharing.

Sign up for sites such as mealsharing.com and cookening.com, and you can select a list of local hosts serving up a wide range of dining options—all cooked in their own kitchens.

“If you’re doing a lot of business travel, you probably get tired of the hotel food or the diner across the street,” says Jessica Smith Soto, the community manager at Meal Sharing. “With meal sharing, you’ll meet locals, get welcomed into their homes, and actually get a quality home-cooked meal.”
