Super Marmite – a new website that invites budding chefs to share the contents of their ‘marmites’ (French for cooking pot) with their hungry neighbours – has launched in Paris.
Users list their menu for the night, set a price (usually between €3-8) and either arrange for it to be picked up, or invite guests to eat with them, providing a low-cost alternative to fast food.
The site has proved popular with locals, as well as visitors who are keen to meet and eat with Parisians. It is particularly useful for finding speciality foods, such as Mexican or Japanese. A mobile app is currently in development, and should be launched later this year.
