Tasting Table, the Free Daily Email Publication Delivering The Best in Food and Drink Culture, Announces Official Launch
New York, NY (October 6, 2008)--Tasting Table (http://tastingtable.com), a free daily email-delivered publication, announced today that it has begun delivering the best of New York City's vast food and drink culture to adventurous eaters and drinkers in the city and beyond. Each day, subscribers receive one delicious discovery about local restaurants, bars, wine shops and markets -- timely, food-focused recommendations that readers won't find anywhere else. Tasting Table's discerning writers scour New York to find ideas -- from street carts to high-end restaurants -- for every kind of food-lover, from the passionate home cook to the serial diner. "Our content is local, of-the-moment, and fun to read," says editor Nick Fauchald, who joined Tasting Table after reporting for Food & Wine and other national epicurean publications. "Our stories aren't just interesting -- they're easy to act on. If we recommend a restaurant, subscribers can click inside the email to browse its menu, visit its web site, or make a reservation."
Tasting Table's unique approach to dining coverage sets it apart from other daily emails. Rather than provide a pinhole view about an untested restaurant before it even opens, Tasting Table delivers first-hand, informed advice in a knowledgeable editorial voice. "We won't cover a new restaurant until we've vetted it ourselves and experienced it as our readers will," explains Fauchald. "Not only aren't we obsessed with the new; we love the classic. We'll remind readers about venerable New York restaurants and forgotten favorites that may have slipped off the radar."
Tasting Table also offers a fresh approach to drinking and cooking coverage, with recipes -- tested and simplified for the home cook -- from top chefs and bartenders, as well as buying and pairing advice from sommeliers and other wine experts. Shopping emails highlight the city's best stores and call out the values -- and splurges -- they offer. On Thursdays, a "Weekend Menu" highlights upcoming food- and drink-related events that Tasting Table readers will enjoy.
Following the launch of its New York edition, Tasting Table plans to expand its reach with a "National" edition for food lovers across America and, later, city-specific editions wherever eating and drinking is enjoyed as a sport. Subscriptions to Tasting Table are free and require only an email address. Visit http://tastingtable.com to sign up and read past articles.
