Unlike/much like couchsurfing (depending on your experience), Kitchensurfing involves a crapload of knives. That's mainly because it connects chefs with people who want said chefs to come into their homes and do everything from cook them delicious meals to teach them how to make delicious meals themselves, in keeping with the old adage "if you give a man a fish, he'll eat for a day, but if you teach a man to fish, he still has to learn how to cook it, so he should probably use Kitchensurfing."
