What is Tasting Table's Editorial Policy?

Tasting Table's recommendations are selected by our editorial staff and trusted contributors. We don't rely on press releases or hearsay to determine what merits mention.

(It's a hard job, but someone's got to do it.) Keep an eye out for the "Tested & Approved" banner at the top right corner of recipe pages on
