A Whole New Serious Eats

Welcome to the new Serious Eats! We've made a whole new design for the site, in order to accomplish a few important goals:

  • Make it easier, faster, and more satisfying to find content on Serious Eats, while modernizing the design to work with the latest technologies.
  • Eliminate the biggest frustrations for frequent users of the site, such as glitches in search and in browsing the archives.
  • Give a stronger sense of community by showing off what's popular, what a particular author has written, and what stories are related to the article you're reading.
  • Set the stage for future improvements by streamlining the systems that run the site behind the scenes.

Two weeks ago, we invited you to preview the new Serious Eats and described the new features. Thanks to everyone who took the time to comment and submit feedback, because you helped us make Serious Eats even better!

You told us the preview site felt "too narrow" and cluttered, and that you wanted to see more and bigger photos. You were right. So on the homepage, we went wider with content and introduced big, beautiful photos. We also made adjustments to our fonts so that they're easier to read across different operating systems and web browsers.

We hope you like what you see, let us know what you think. You might still encounter some funny looking pages tonight as archive pages continue to update overnight, so bear with us until that process is complete.

Special thanks to the team that worked on this project: Tracie Lee, Christine Tsai, Paul Cline, Ben Fishner, and 29th Street Publishing.

P.S. If it doesn't look quite right i.e. you don't see any images, clear your browser cache to make sure you see all the new styles! Here's how: http://www.wikihow.com/Clear-Your-Browser's-Cache.
