Without pruning, apple trees bear no fruit. We really took that to heart over the past six months as we planned for this redesign. We wanted to prune, simplify and provide room for growth. In this, our 2nd redesign since 2004, we've made one BIG change: we've combined all of our home design sites into one site and given our other four categories - cooking, children, tech and green - their own homes with room to grow. Take a tour and check it all out. Some parts are still under construction, but there's a lot new to see. Here at The Kitchn we have been looking forward to this redesign and the opportunities it provides for even more yummy and nourishing food content. The mission of this site is to be for those who care about the quality of their food, and how it affects the health of themselves and the planet. It is also for those who want to cook more, but are shy in the kitchen. It's a place to dive in deep, and embrace the joy of one of our basic needs: food. We hope that this redesign contributes to that mission, as we go forward, and that you jump in and help us be a place where we're all getting our hands dirty in the kitchen.
