Hi! We're Team Delish. When you visit our corner of the internet, we want you to feel comfortable. Like Did we just become best friends?! kind of comfortable. We're not here to shame you into making beef bourguignon when all you really want is a Sloppy Joe Meatball Bake (delicious, btw). And if you do attempt something a little out of your comfort zone and fail spectacularly, we're never going to tsk-tsk you; we've had plenty of OH, S#!T! moments. (Wanna see 'em?)
Don't get us wrong—we're serious about food. If you've come here to finally tackle a sourdough recipe, we'll break down the (ahem, very laborious) technique, step by step. Or if you want, say, *the* birthday cake, classic lasagna, or perfect ribeye that will never fail you, we've got all those. We just like to give everything the Delish level of love, which means our version of the recipe will hopefully save you a few extra minutes, or teach you a fun trick, or miracorously have you cook everything in one pan versus three because dishes are the worst.
We equally celebrate those who love to cook and those who just really love to eat. Wherever you fall on that spectrum, you'll find your people here. So come get to know us—the team behind Delish. Meet the people who work hard to bring you the recipes, stories, and videos you see every month. We want you to love cooking from and spending time on Delish as much as we love creating this space for you, so engage with us: rate your favorite recipes, leave a comment on how it went, and be sure to save all the delicious-looking things you come across that you can't wait to make.
Why You Should Trust Us
We hand-pick every product that appears on Delish with you in mind—and they're all tested, researched, or editor-approved. Our goal? To make it easy for you to find the best whatever you want (whether that's a high-powered blender or a healthy meal delivery service) and introduce you to the need-right-now products we're obsessing over.
Our New York City-based team of editors and recipe developers analyzes the quality, durability, aesthetics, and taste (when applicable!) of every product we recommend. And when we don't have the answers, we turn to those who do: professional chefs, our colleagues at the Good Housekeeping Research Institute, nutritionists, researchers, organizational experts, you name it.
For Delish Unlimited and quarterly questions and customer service, you can email email@example.com or visit delish.com/service. For general brand inquiries, you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We work with a select number of affiliate marketing programs. When you click on a link on our site that takes you to another retailer, we may earn a small commission. But know: We are driven by our editorial standards and what we know you love, not by relationships with companies or advertisers.
Listen: We know how to have a good time here—and we want you to have one, too. That's why all of our recipes go through a stringent testing period, to make them as infallible as possible: They're tested until they're perfect and ready for you to make. The same goes for everything we put in our cookbooks.
A couple other things you should know: Every story we write is edited for clarity and fairness. And we'd never recommend that you buy, try, watch, or make something we wouldn't ourselves.

Find Us Everywhere
Can't get enough of the site? Good news: We're, like, kind of everywhere.
Whatever you're hungry for—you-heard-it-here-first Frappuccino launches, celebrity chef updates, a round-up of wine subscription services—we dish it out. We're committed to bringing you the news you crave before anyone else does. Want to sit with us a bit longer? We also spend time tackling bigger stories (including why you bake when you're stressed) and important issues (like the budding cannabis wedding industry and our country's greasy relationship with Chick-fil-A).
We're the small but mighty crew responsible for every single recipe that hits the site, plus all of the ones in our quarterly magazine, cookbooks, and special edition issues. We work out of two very cramped kitchens (#welcometonewyork) to develop, test, style, and shoot more than 50 recipes every month. Our backgrounds might be legit—culinary schools, restaurant kitchens—but we're not above boxed cake mixes and dinners inspired by our favorite chain restaurants. One last thing you should know? Our love language is cream cheese: We go through about 600 blocks every year.
For nutritional expertise, we worked with the editors of Women's Health and Prevention, as well as registered dietitian Lara Clevenger, MSH, RDN, CPT.
This design team is the reason our photography, website, quarterly magazine, and cookbooks look so damn good. Everything you see on Delish and in our cookbooks is designed or hand-drawn and animated by us.
Ever sent us a DM on Instagram or left a comment on Facebook? Hi, that was us who answered you! We're the team who packages up all the content our team produces and posts it for the world to see. We write the captions, produce the polls, and run TikTok (among so much more across Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest).
We create more than 3,000 videos a year—more than any other brand at Hearst. That means we're the ones to blame when you come to after a nine-episode binge of "Iconic Eats" on YouTube. And you know those little animations you fall in love with in our videos? We create those, too.
