Welcome to The Kitchn

Helping everyone live happier, healthier lives at home through their kitchen.

  • The Kitchn is a daily food magazine on the Web celebrating life in the the kitchen through home cooking and kitchen intelligence.
  • Monthly readership: 17 million, plus another 1 million through our social channels.

We are a member of the AT Media family of sites, along with Apartment Therapy.

We publish 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 2005 by Maxwell Ryan and Sara Kate Gillingham, also the founders of The Kitchn's companion site, Apartment Therapy.

Today The Kitchn is brought to you by a diverse team of editors, writers, recipe developers, and photographers from across the country.

How Can I Contribute?

The Kitchn is written by a small, steady team of freelance writers and we do not at this time accept unsolicited freelance submissions. However, we do hire from time to time, so keep an eye on our Job Listings for future postings.

We do not accept unsolicited guest posts.

If, however, you are a reader or a blogger who would like to share a kitchen project or recipe link from your own site with our audience, we would love to hear from you! We also are always accepting questions from our readers, which are published in our Good Questions column. Click the link below to contact us with any of these!

Thank you for reading, and happy cooking!

The AT Media Mission

Helping people make their homes more beautiful, organized and healthy by connecting them to a wealth of resources, ideas and community online.

What We Believe

A calm, healthy, beautiful home is a necessary foundation for happiness and success in the world.

Creating this home doesn't require large amounts of money or space. It requires inspiration, connection to resources and motivation to do something about it.

The basic elements of good home design can be learned and achieved by all.

Simplicity and luxury are not mutually exclusive.

Our Goal

To connect people to the resources they need to improve their homes, while reducing their reliance on stuff.
