Vancouver is a foodie city. But locals know that some of the best meals are served around dinner tables at home, not in restaurants.

Now, diners have a chance to sample those down-home creations as part of DinnerPartyYVR: a unique event that sees “hobby chefs” open up their home to strangers, all for a good cause.

The event returns for its fourth year, this Saturday, April 9. According to the CBC, more than 500 hobby chefs across Vancouver will be hosting thousands of happy eaters inside their own homes.  The minimum $50 donation includes a home-cooked feast and a glass of beer or wine, and proceeds go to charities. The meals are intimate affairs, generally with seating for four to ten people.  Continue reading:

The dinner party is a “local, global dinner party” organised by Social Bites. Local hobby chefs will open their doors to strangers and treat guests to a home cooked meal, all in support of their favourite charity. Menus range on a global scale, from Italian to Chinese to Moroccan. Diners can take their pick of cuisines and purchase tickets to the meal of their choice.
