Our food writer role is for someone who loves to cook—and who reads, writes, and talks about cooking constantly. You have an ever-growing list of recipes you want to make and dishes you want to try. You have a pulse on which ingredients, cooking styles, and appliances are in the spotlight — and which ones are about to be. In this role, youll scour cookbooks, restaurant menus, blogs, Pinterest, Instagram, and the mind of every person you talk to for cooking tips, trends, and techniques that our audience of avid home cooks can latch onto and learn from. This role will have a singular focus on food from the African Diaspora
Youll use this knowledge to communicate cooking know-how through clear and compelling articles. Youll write a wide range of stories that vary in length and depth—from short pieces on need-to-know cooking tips to longer, researched articles that compare various techniques for the same dish. You’ll find, test, and edit community and contributor recipes. Youll also think visually and creatively, scoping out what is most effectively communicated through video, GIF, infographic, design, or photograph.
