The highly efficient and creative team at create unique and innovative art, in addition to testing and tasting the recipes published. We spend hundreds of hours weekly putting together superb photos with our recipes (more than 30% have photos) and developing useful food photography, such as our classic “Fork wrapped lovingly around a poached pear”. Additionally, on the recipe side, we try to create unique recipes that focus on preparation by the average home cook, not gourmet chefs, recognizing that the majority of our readers do not have sufficient training to prepare complex gastronomic formulae, but can and want to make a better meatloaf or pot-pie.

Putting it Together

Among food and beverage sites, it is important to note that most of them have very focused content that does not factor the broader interests of their readers, while Epicurus reacts swiftly and effectively to provide content that does provide what readers seek. An example of this was the request of one cigar-smoking gentleman who wrote seeking grilling recipes and mentioned that he cannot find information on food sites suitable to a male audience. Looking at our statistics, we discovered that about 25% of our audience are “die-hard” male cooks who prefer grilling recipes. A quick survey found a large percentage of these smoked cigars, so we published additional grilled food recipes as well as a cigar glossary.


One of the best things about for its advertisers is our adaptability to your requirements. Faced with a request from a Japanese rice company, we developed and published a considerable range of recipes to suit their products and an invitation to participate in their rice recipe contest. One of our readers came in 3rd out of more than 18,000 contest entries around the world. We are fully responsive to custom requirements and will happily endeavor to meet special needs, ranging from unique ad sizes to recipe development.
