A few years ago I had a dream. About creating an online clubhouse for food, a place that serious eaters could come to share their food enthusiasm. A place serious eaters could come to find out what's going in the world of food and drink, find a recipe, look at a cool food video, get restaurant advice, and, best of all, chew the fat with like-minded folks. Three years ago, that dream, Serious Eats, became a reality.
And in those three short years, we've become home base for millions of passionate, discerning, and inclusive food lovers all over the world.
Thank you, Serious Eats community. You are the merry band who makes the site feel so alive whenever anyone logs on. You make me laugh, you make me smarter, and you make me so proud to have played a part in creating the greatest food lovers' community in the world.
My dream has become a reality with the the help of a savvy and forward-thinking group of advertisers and sponsors who have believed in my dream and joined in the conversation from the outset; a few supportive and visionary investors; the insanely hardworking crew at Serious Eats world headquarters, Alaina Browne, Adam Kuban, Robyn Lee, Erin Zimmer, and Carey Jones; all the contributing food-blogger journalists from all over the world who welcomed us with open arms and who help make the site a daily required destination for serious eaters; and finally, a talented bunch of quick-study interns. You have all grown with us, and I'll tell you: we're just getting started.
Serious Eats is only three, but in web years, by my calculation, that's an eternity. I look forward to growing older and wiser with the entire Serious Eats community. Keep on logging on, reading, eating seriously, cooking, watching, conversing, and laughing, serious eaters. That's what I'll be doing, and I hope all of you will come along for what promises to be a wonderfully fulfilling ride.
