We're Cooking Up a New Serious Eats

Serious Eats Preview

For the past several months, we've been working on a broad set of new features and updates for Serious Eats. This process began months ago, and involved everything from brainstorming by our team to thinking of new ways to make the site more satisfying to inviting a number of community members to our offices earlier this year to give feedback on aspects of the new design. Today, we've reached the biggest, most important milestone yet in this process: We're asking for your feedback on a near-final version of the new Serious Eats.

This new version of the site isn't fully cooked yet. We need your feedback. We still have some bugs to squash and some tweaks to make, and we wanted to let you know what's coming. To make sure we can put your feedback to use, we've made a list of our goals for this redesign, and then described the features that we've created to meet those goals.

Our Goals for Updating Serious Eats

Based on these goals, we prioritized some key new features for the site. Of course, there are an infinite number of changes we'd like to make, and we can't promise we've fixed everyone's personal pet peeve. But we hope you'll help us judge how well the features that we have created meet the goals we've described above.

Features of the New Serious Eats

Explore The Preview Site

Since this new site is still a work in progress and we wanted to get your feedback while we're still in development, we've made the new site available as a Preview version of Serious Eats.

THE PREVIEW SITE WILL NOT INCLUDE THE LATEST STORIES FROM SERIOUS EATS AND YOUR COMMENTS ON THE PREVIEW SITE WILL NOT BE SAVED WHEN THE PREVIEW ENDS.

To be clear: This is a testing site, which shows off the functionality that we'll have when the new design is launched, but we're keeping the Preview completely separate from the live site so that we can quickly make changes based on your feedback.

There are some other minor differences in the preview site which won't reflect its final state, such as stories prior to April of this year lacking their photos and images. We'll post a list of known issues on the Preview site as we collect your feedback, so that you'll know whether a bug you've found is one that we're aware of or not.

After you've had a chance to spend some time clicking around the preview site, please use this feedback form to report any issues you come across and to let us know what you think.

Without further ado, the Serious Eats Preview Site ยป
