Who We Are
Food & Kitchen celebrates the global epicurean experience with authoritative content across our magazine, website, social platforms, premium events such as the Food & Kitchen Classic in Aspen, and accolades like our annual Best New Chef awards. Our New York City — and Birmingham, Alabama — based editors are committed to our core values of inclusivity and hospitality, and we strive to offer a welcoming, informative, entertaining, and respectful experience for all people. With rigorously tested recipes and the most trusted restaurant, drinks, culinary travel, and home coverage, we inspire and empower people everywhere to discover, create, and devour the best in food and wine.
Food & Kitchen is honored to have received numerous awards from the James Beard Foundation, the International Association of Culinary Professionals, the American Society of Magazine Editors, and many other organizations over the years, and many of our stories have been anthologized in the annual series The Best American Food Writing.
Food & Kitchen is committed to bringing our readers delicious, dependable, useful, and engaging food and drinks content. We seek out experts and authorities for all of our stories and recipes, whether that’s a professional chef who can demystify a restaurant cooking technique or a seasoned home cook who can bring a beloved recipe to life for a reader trying it for the first time. Expertise takes many forms, and we tap into all of it. Our Best New Chef award and our broader restaurant coverage are informed by a rigorous vetting and scouting process. All of our articles, recipes, photographs, and illustrations are edited and overseen by our editorial staff.
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
We believe that diversity, equity, and inclusion are the foundations of editorial excellence and any successful business. We are committed to producing premium, inclusive, and equitable content and experiences in print, on our digital channels and social media platforms, in our videos, and at our events. We celebrate the people and business owners who are leaders in advancing more equitable, diverse, and positive global food cultures.
On all of our platforms, we create content that reflects and celebrates the full range and diversity of the people who make up the world of food and drink, including women, men, and non-binary people, people of all races, nationalities, religions, body types, abilities, ages, and members of the LGBTQ+ community. Our content should also always be geographically inclusive. Our stories, recipes, images, and videos must offer a welcoming, inclusive, entertaining, and respectful experience for diverse readers and viewers.
The Four C’s of Inclusive Storytelling
Internally and in our work with freelance workers and talent, we are committed to the following values.
Mitigate power differential and maintain trust between editor and writer, creator and publisher, and F&W departments. Everyone’s work and role is valued.
Give everyone participating in a project the opportunity to approve the work at various stages, especially recipe developer signoff before photo shoots.
Pay for all work, including recipes. Give proper credit to creators and collaborators.
Never strip stories, ideas, and subjects of their context. Many concepts may feel universal, but we always link them back to their origin (who, what, where, when) to ensure accuracy and richness of storytelling.
Independence and Impartiality
Food & Kitchen is committed to independent, impartial, fair journalism. Our editorial content is not influenced by our advertisers. Every Food & Wine staff member and contributor is held accountable to a high standard of honesty and transparency.
We maintain a strict separation between advertising and editorial content. Our “Sponsored Content” is labeled to make clear that such content is provided by or on behalf of an advertiser or sponsor.
All of our writers and editors are responsible for disclosing any potential conflicts of interest—any relationship, financial, or personal, with any source or resource that may compromise their ability to provide fair and impartial information. As with many publishers, our writers and editors are sometimes provided with complimentary products or services for review purposes. We are transparent and disclose when any valuable products or services are provided to our editorial teams. Our editorial staff and editorial contributors must not solicit gifts or services for personal purposes.
Recipe Development and Testing
At Food & Kitchen, we inspire and empower home cooks to be ambitious with their approach to recipes, whether it’s a weekend baking project or weeknight dinner. On our site, you’ll find thousands of recipes that were developed by pro chefs and test kitchen experts and designed for the home cook. Our recipes celebrate cooking techniques and flavors from around the world and are one way we share the stories of the people and cultures behind them. They also happen to be delicious. And, most importantly, they work. All our recipes are rigorously tested and cross-tested by panels of professional cooks and editors who work to ensure your success in the kitchen.
