We’re Different

Food Riot is dedicated to the idea that writing about food and eating should be just as diverse as foods and food-lovers are. So sometimes we are serious and sometimes silly. Some of our writers are pros. Many of them aren’t. We like a good essay or a fun list just as much as we like a recipe. We think you can like both Twinkies and tarragon and there’s room to have fun with both.

And the only thing we like as much as food is talking about food with other eaters. So welcome to Food Riot—you seem like our kind of people.
