The Kitchn is a daily blog publication devoted to home cooking and kitchen design. We have a committed monthly following of over 4 million readers, and we are a companion site to Apartment Therapy, which receives about 6 million readers a month.
We publish about 20 short articles daily that inform and inspire every aspect of home cooking, from recipes to cooking lessons to product reviews to kitchen design and renovation advice.
This is a site for people who like to get their hands dirty while they cook. It is for those who care about the quality of their food, and how it affects the health of themselves and the planet. It is for cooks who care about design and want to create a beautiful kitchen. It's a place to dive in deep, and embrace the joy of one of our basic needs: Food, cooked at home, nourishing ourselves and our households.
Who Is The Kitchn?
The Kitchn was founded in 2006 by Maxwell Ryan and Sara Kate Gillingham-Ryan, also the founders of The Kitchn's parent site, Apartment Therapy.
Today The Kitchn is created by a vibrant, diverse team of writers, recipe developers, and photographers from across the country. The site is overseen and edited by Faith Durand, executive editor, Cambria Bold, managing editor for products and provisions, and Emma Christensen, associate recipe editor.

Where Should I Start?
There are thousands and thousands of posts on The Kitchn, so jump right in! There are resources here for new cooks and experienced cooks -- tips, ideas, techniques, and videos. There are recipes for simple food and fancy food, and good cooking to carry you through every season of the year.
There's inspiration for those of us who live with tiny rental kitchens, and ideas for that dream kitchen you'll create someday.
We try to focus on the tools that will last, examining and reviewing the best of the kitchen gear available in local stores and markets. We love talking about ingredients -- what's delicious, what's smart, what's economical.
And every day we bring you our thoughts and reflections, musings and short writings from a diverse team of writers and home cooks. But these are only a springboard for the experiences of you, our readers. We hope you join in the conversations we start here -- offering your own opinions and encouragements.
