"...the gastronomic supersite Serious Eats."

"With a fresh design, a constant flow of well-written posts, and a genuinely engaged community, Serious Eats makes a good case for why old-school media outlets should fear the rise of blogs."

PBS MediaShift

"It's a beautifully put-together blog - easy to follow, visually appealing - with food writing that makes your stomach rumble. Ultimately, Serious Eats is a must-click for all food lovers."
