I was surfing the net a bit randomly yesterday and found this great website: Protected content
It's a website where you can book dinner/lunch/brunch at someones home and they will provide you with home cooking. Great experience to try local home-made food and to get to know some new people.
Currently mainly active in Brussels -the website just openend- but I think this concept can spread quite quickly around the globe (or lets keep it for the moment in europe :-))
Turin is one of THE capitals of good food, I hope there will soon be some locals joining the club! If by any chance, you need to be in Brussels, try some local! And once I'm in Turin, I might sign up to become one myself!
