Welcome to WeFiFo!

“Airbnb for the kitchen table”

WeFiFo is an online platform connecting Supper Club hosts, professional chefs and home cooks with guests hungry for authentic food experiences

Who are we and what do we do?

WeFiFo launched in 2016 and is a multi-award-winning platform that enables enthusiastic home cooks, Supper Club hosts and professional chefs to share their food with paying guests. WeFiFo is Airbnb for the kitchen table but offers much more than just a marketplace. Designed to encourage and empower talented cooks to monetise their kitchen skills, WeFiFo offers a sophisticated infrastructure allowing hosts to up-skill and earn a transformative income with flexible working hours and rewards. WeFiFo also supports professional chefs who don't want the risk of a bricks and mortar restaurant but want to feed a new audience.

Anyone can sign up and join in, hosts are not pre-screened or curated, but ratings and reviews help guests choose between the multitude of events on offer – from novice cooks to award winning chefs at the top of their game.

We are the online destination to discover exciting experiential dining near you and our platform promotes, insures and inspires cooks and chefs of all abilities to take the next step on their food journey while keeping hosts and guests safe every step of the way.

Hear all about it - WeFiFo on the BAsh podcast!

WeFiFo's CEO Seni Glaister recently recorded an episode of the BAsh podcast with Benjamin Ashmore.

They discuss WeFiFo, how the platform came to be and what the plans are for 2019 and beyond. Seni talks about her experiences in business, the impact that WeFiFo has on the lives of its community and the importance of hard work.

If you're new to WeFiFo - this is a great way to hear what we're all about! If you've listened, we'd love to hear what you think. Benjamin will be back to record with Seni again at the beginning of 2020 as he follows WeFiFo's progress.

We are also working with local councils, large shopping centres and high street restaurants to ensure that good food and conversation is always available wherever you are.

WeFiFo in the Press

“WeFiFo not only attracts ardent foodies, but everyone from hard-up students and stay-at-home parents to retirees and single yopros, too. In other words, there are few that this culinary platform wouldn’t appeal to.”
