TastePlease offers a new and revolutionary way to dine, meet and interact. It’s an online Food Universe that combines the best of social media with a Global marketplace for unique and authentic meal experiences.

BY FOODIES, FOR FOODIES Driven by a shared passion for food, the team behind TastePlease caters to food lovers across the globe. It doesn’t matter if you are a carnivore, vegan, or fruitarian – there is a place for everyone on TastePlease.

ENJOY A WORLD OF FLAVOURS With TastePlease as your travel companion, you can experience true local food culture like never before. The global platform makes it easy for hungry travellers to connect with local hosts, allowing them to get a real taste of any given country’s cuisine.

SHOWCASE YOUR COOKING SKILLS Whether you are a professional chef or simply a passionate home cook, TastePlease is the perfect platform to share your talents in the kitchen. Simply sign up, create your event and wait for new and exciting people to purchase a seat!

IT’S ALL ABOUT SHARING The best things in life are meant to be shared, and TastePlease makes it easy to share food experiences both online and online, as the platform is fully integrated with Facebook and other major social media channels.


TastePlease is based in Copenhagen, Denmark, created by local chef Frank Lantz – From march 22, TastePlease is available in 190 countries and 14 languages – www.tasteplease.com and available via app for iOS and Android devices.

TastePlease will revolutionize the way we dine, meet and interact. The TastePlease social platform makes it much easier for people with a passion for food to come together – it’s basically a worldwide dining club where everybody is invited.”

Unlike other social media platforms, TastePlease’s food universe is mainly focused on sharing in-person experiences. In other words, it is all about using modern technology to socialize the old fashioned way. From blinis to burgers, food has the power to bring us together. Today’s busy lifestyle, however, makes it hard to schedule meals with family and friends as often as we might wish. So why not try a social dinner with like minded food lovers?

The new TastePlease platform offers its users the opportunity to create, host and join culinary events anywhere, anytime. Professional chefs can find tasters to try out new menus, hospitable home cooks can fill the seats around their dining table, and hungry foodies can find their next unique meal.

Thanks to the rise of Airbnb, we already travel the world living like the locals do. With the introduction of TastePlease, we can eat like – and with – the locals, too.

It may finally be time to say goodbye to the infamous tourist traps and start indulging in true local flavours. “The search for authentic food experiences was essential to me when I first got the idea for TastePlease,” says founder Frank Lantz.

“I wanted to make it easy for travellers to get a real taste of local culture and find something like that little family restaurant we all look for when we go abroad.”

And the social dining adventures are by no means reserved for travellers. By engaging with the different cultures and cuisines represented in their very own neighbourhood, locals will have the chance to experience their city from an all new perspective.

Basically, we are just the messengers! TastePlease is a platform set free and in the hands of you, the user!

The team behind TastePlease have many visions that we’d like your help to carry out:

Use the platform to combat loneliness – imagine a lonely elderly lady cooking for students in her neighborhood, bringing extra meaning to many lives. TastePlease can help make this happen!

Help struggling people in developing countries – imagine a poor farmer barely making ends meet, being able to provide for his/her family by selling an authentic fresh ingredient dining experience to tourists for much more than he could sell his produce for at his local market? TastePlease can help make this happen!

Combat food waste – with TastePlease, you can easily sell those portion(s) you/your close ones couldn’t eat to those who perhaps haven’t got the time to cook for themselves. We’re also working on anti food waste schemes where famous chefs and environmentalists get together and create inspiring content that helps YOU combat food waste.

Help people from different cultures understand each other – no one’s ever started a conflict with a belly full of delicious food 🙂
