Whenever I travel my holy grail is to have conversations with actual people of the area and check out a regular person’s kitchen. There is no better way to do this than to cadge an invitation to dine at someone’s home. But sometimes you are really “dining”, not just eating. The whole event can be over burdened with expectations and formality on the part …
