A review of the platform revolutionizing the way we dine.
Fortunately, not only have we lived to tell the tale, but we now want to sing & dance about it; our unique, fascinating, exciting and down-right lovely evening with our personal cooks, Maria & Alan.
Let’s go back to the start, on Twitter, where Maria & I met. I was doing a shout out for people to support my fundraising efforts for an upcoming volunteer placement in India whilst Maria was tweeting & networking. Within minutes, she had offered to cook me and my family a twelve course meal and, instead of us each paying for her services and time, she would donate the money raised to my Just Giving page.
I was sold – and intrigued (…more importantly though, I was sold! Ha) It just so happened that my partner’s birthday was coming up so it could tie in perfectly. Luke decided he’d like Spanish Tapas so Maria designed a bespoke menu catering to his wishes. All the guests had to do was register & pay in advance online; the rest was left for Maria.
The website is called WeFiFo, short for We Find Food. The idea is to enable anyone who loves cooking to open their doors and cook for people in their area. Cooks decide & publish their menu, and their pricing, and members of the public, neighbours, or visitors, book on and turn up (you bring your own drinks – shaving at least £15 off each bottle of wine, should you have gone down the traditional restaurant route…) It’s genius! A way to meet new people, try local or specialist cuisine, and support home-based entrepreneurs.
Coming from a marketing background, I have to say that the website, the branding and the language use on the website is brilliant too – although the concept sells itself.
Obviously, our event was unique in that it catered specifically for our family and Maria chose to donate the money for a good cause. Myself, and every single family member present, can’t recommend Maria and WeFiFo enough. For your next family get together, get in touch to see what they can do for you.
