Check-In to the Trend: New Host The Tiny Chef Talks Food Trends on Airbnb

Today marks a big moment of tiny proportions as the Tiny Chef  brings his culinary passion and affinity for kitchen design to Airbnb. For the first time ever, four travelers and fellow miniature food enthusiasts are able to get an insider’s look at Chef’s tree stump home — including his beautiful kitchen and “sheeshell sink” — and get a studio tour while dining on some delicious tiny bites on December 4. To celebrate our newest and tiniest Experience host, I met up with Chef to discuss how food travel is booming amongst Airbnb guests, and take a look at some other teeny kitchens that will excite you to cook your biggest cravings.

Food and the kitchens it comes from have the power to bring people together and open the doors to cultural traditions. It is perhaps common consensus that there is no better way to get to know a place than by getting a taste of it, and Airbnb guests seem to agree.
