On May 22, as a part of Internet Week NYC, Cookbook Create hosted a Food Tour which brought a selected set of East Coast bloggers on tours of the test kitchens of Bon Appetit, The Daily Meal, and Food52.
and Jennifer Pelka from Tumblr got the chance to not only view these kitchens, but also speak with key members of each staff. Some of the speakers included Adam Rapoport, the editor-in-chief Bon Appetit, Amanda Hesser & Merrill Stubbs, the founders of Food52, Jackie Stone, Senior Vice President of Marketing at The Daily Meal and Spanfeller Media and, Colman Andrews, Editorial Director at The Daily Meal and Spanfeller Media
They even tasted a few recipes that were being worked on in the kitchens.
As part of Internet Week, KitchenAid and The Daily Meal generously donated a shiny, new 7-quart KitchenAid stand mixer to be given to one of the bloggers.
As a contest, we asked the bloggers who attended to submit their top post from the event that had the highest amount of engagement with their readers. Everyone was busy all day tweeting, live-blogging, Instagraming, and Facebooking about their experiences in each kitchen.
Although it was a close call, the winner is Kimberly Coleman of Foodie City Mom!!
Congratulations Kimberly, and thank you to every single blogger who shared in the great day with us!
If you could tour one food publication’s kitchen, which one would it be? What would you want to see the most there?
