Is technology changing the way we eat?
Share This Article:
Society is in the midst of upheaval; the concept of sharing experiences and interacting with each other is transforming the way we travel, socialise and eat. Originally coming from the 1930s and 1940s in the US, supper clubs offer a cross between a dinner party and a restaurant, run by ordinary people in their own homes. Supper club host and blogger behind The London Foodie, Luiz Hara, explained to The National Student that: “Technology is changing lives. We now share taxis and homes through Airbnb and Uber. “When we travel, we experience things with people we have never met before. “We have become much more inclusive; we want to have a much more personal experience than we did 10-15 years ago.” The former investment banker, who started his supper club in 2012, believes that social dining is becoming part of a bigger movement, especially in London. He continued: “Londoners are open-minded and cultural. This exposure to diversity makes us more tolerant of other customs. “Although we are naturally reserved, that is changing because of the social nature of technology; we are sharing and talking more.” This flourishing culinary experience offers an exciting alternative to fine-dining restaurants and a unique opportunity to expand your social circle, and the Le Cordon Bleu graduate’s Islington home has played host to much more than his Nikkei fusion feasts. Hara added: “I have close friends who met at my supper club, an engaged couple met here too, which is incredible.” As technology evolves at an unprecedented rate, it keeps on affecting many aspects of our social lives, and our search for food makes no exception.
