Since being launched in February, the website has attracted 2,900 members, of whom 460 are registered as cooks, meaning they sell food.Nearly all of them live in Denmark, where the website is especially popular in the trendy Copenhagen neighborhoods of Noerrebro and Vesterbro, but the site's founders are hoping it will go global after recently launching an English-language version.Earlier this month, another Danish takeaway website, Just-eat.com, which allows users to order food from 36,000 restaurants in 13 countries, was valued at $2.47 billion when it was floated on the London Stock Exchange 13 years after being founded.However, feeling peckish one night, the team behind Dinnersurfer – made up of two business students and a computer programmer – felt that regular takeaway wasn't what they were looking for.Not everyone is convinced that ordering food from strangers online is a good idea.On one Danish Internet forum, users questioned how buyers could know whether hygiene standards were being upheld and how the origin of the food could be verified.
