Editorial

Tasting Table Media items are selected by our editors. No one can pay to be featured on Tasting Table. That's what advertising is for, and it's always labeled as such.

That said, on occasion, we will send out "advertorial" e-mails on behalf of sponsors. You'll recognize them from the subject line, which will indicate that the email is advertorial. Advertorial emails are paid for. When you sign up for any portion of Tasting Table Media you are agreeing not only to get our content delivered to you free, but also to occasionally receive one of these advertorial e-mails from our sponsors. If you would prefer not to get these e-mails, just unsubscribe from Tasting Table’s Email (unfortunately you won't be getting -any- Tasting Table e-mails any more).

We would never sell our subscriber list to anyone.
