New Food Trend: Home Cooking Delivered to Your Door

If you want a homemade meal but can't cook or find the time, a new delivery service - dubbed the Uber of cooking - is making sure you're fed right.

First, you could share your home on Airbnb and your car on Uber. Now, you can share your meal thanks to the latest development in the sharing economy.

With wholefoods and home-cooked meals high on the minds of the health-conscious, Sydney's new food delivery service is set to be a big hit.

FoodByUs is creating an "online marketplace" through which you can source a home cooked meal to pick up or get delivered to your home.

Like all peer-based services, you can also review your meal online to ensure the next person can find a treat to their taste.

And don't think it's going to be all sausages and stews, the home cooks appear more than capable of serving up a restaurant-quality feast, with some of the original members specialising in gourmet pies, empanadas, vegan deserts, or healthy snacks.

"We created FoodByUs to give locals the opportunity to experience the wealth of talented home cooks in their area, which they won’t find anywhere else," explained the Co-Founder and Managing Director of FoodByUs, Ben Lipschitz,.

"We only accept top makers and every purchase on FoodByUs must get rated by the buyer, so everyone gets the best quality food and experience."

By the same token, if you love to cook but don't have enough people to serve, FoodByUs enables you to start your own restaurant just out of your kitchen.

FoodByUs cooks can also choose their own menu, prices and operating hours.

While the services is currently only available in Sydney, FoodByUs plans to launch in Melbourne later this year.
