I’m going to tell you a story of how a fully tattooed guy almost killed me in my kitchen. Everything started in 2013 when I moved to Hamburg having the following issue: I was new in the city and didn’t know anyone there. I was doing long hours in the office. I couldn’t cook and I was never even enthusiastic about learning it. My options were to order take-away, or to go to a restaurant. But in both cases I was alone. And that is when an idea came to mind. What if I could join my neighbour at his dining table? let him or her cook for me, while I’m meeting new people. So, I started to ask in Facebook groups: Hey guys, dinner at my place next week. Who’s in? But I still had that one problem: Who’s gonna cook? A couple of days later, Marc was standing in my kitchen and I was like… ****! What if he’s crazy? What if he can’t cook? It turned out that Marc is a fantastic chef. He prepared a very cool three course meal for us. When people came together that evening, it felt like having friends at home, and I was fascinated by that. Marc came to me and said: Eddi, you just opened a pop-up restaurant in your kitchen. And I just replied: You know, it’s more than that. This is social dining! And that’s how I got the idea to develop a platform. One year later… Cooking is my life. Often, it is the simple cuisine people are surprised of. My name is Michael and I’m from Hamburg. Recently, I discovered CHEF.ONE. I really enjoy cooking for strangers while spending an evening with them in a cosy environment. CHEF.ONE enables you to meet and share your dining experience with other people. People find it difficult to leave the dinner table because they are having such a great experience. My vision of CHEF.ONE has become reality. I connect new and interesting people in a homely atmosphere for an unforgettable experience. How does it work? Very simple: You book a dinner at one of the hosts in your city, take a seat and enjoy the experience.
