The Future of Food Media Is in Your Inbox [TASTE]


Do you love cookbooks?

I love cookbooks. And what’s more, I know cookbooks: I’ve been a professional cookbook critic for over ten years, and my reviews have appeared on Eater, Epicurious, Lucky Peach, and Food 52.

Stained Page News is where, every Tuesday, I share news, recipes, exciting upcoming books, details on new releases, my personal recommendations, and random cookbook-related content that I think is funny.

If you really want to geek out about cookbooks, you have come to the right place.


If you choose to become a paid subscriber, there’s even more. For $5/month or $50/year, you get:

  • The Tuesday News Digest, featuring upcoming cookbooks, publishing news, recipes, plenty of good stuff to read, and much more.

  • The Friday Edition, with book deals, personalized reader recommendations, discussion prompts, book reviews, author Q&As, genre guides, and more.

  • Unlock the ability to comment on posts, allowing you to participate in discussions and connect with fellow cookbook lovers.
