In 2019, travelers don’t just want to go sightseeing when visiting a destination, they want immersion. For many, there is no better way to understand a culture than through its food.

Airbnb is launching Cooking Experiences, a new category of bookable experiences that unlock the hidden culinary traditions of families all around the world. Guests can now get access to 3,000 unique recipes that are usually reserved for friends and family in over 75 countries globally.

Unlike typical cooking classes, which can feel intimidating or time-consuming, at the heart of every experience is human connection; people coming together to make and share a meal. Hosted by grandmas, farmers, pasty makers and more, Airbnb Cooking Experiences are new way to understand culture through food, with hosts teaching traditional recipes and sharing stories in intimate settings around the world.
