Call it the Airbnb effect: Porsena and Porchetta chef-owner Sara Jenkins is offering a traditional Italian Sunday lunch on EatWith.com, a website matching hungry guests and hosts for meals at people's homes. Two as yet undisclosed other New York City-based chefs have signed on for the series, and Jenkins's meal, which takes place July 20 for a "suggested donation" of $46, includes crostini, salumi, Tuscan lasagna, and either roast chicken or rabbit. Sadly, her porchetta bánh mì, a Cheap Eats honoree, doesn't seem to be involved, but the idea is for the chefs to serve things not necessarily found at their restaurants. Dessert is olive oil cake and fruit; check out more details here. [Official site]
