Why you can trust good food
BBC Good Food is the UK’S No 1 food lifestyle media brand. We are passionate about food and cooking. While recipes are at the heart of what we do, we are committed to helping you to have the best food experience you can, whether you’re shopping for food, in your kitchen or eating out in the UK or abroad. This is what we promise…
Biggest and best
We’re proud to be Britain’s biggest-selling food magazine and the UK’S No 1 food website, bbcgoodfood.com. Our contributors – BBC chefs, our in-house cookery team and confident, outspoken columnists – are experts in their fields. Meet us at the UK’S biggest food shows (visit bbcgoodfoodshow.com for dates and details). Our best-selling cookbooks feature our trusted recipes – you’ll find these in bookshops.
Recipes for everyone
There are 70 new recipes in every issue – that’s more than any other food magazine in Britain. We always include quick, easy dishes, ideas for relaxed entertaining and more challenging recipes for when you want to take your skills up a notch. Look out for our regular easiest-ever recipes.
Tested and trusted
All our recipes are triple-tested – once by the writer or chef, once or twice in the Good Food
Test Kitchen, and again on the photo shoot – so they’ll work first time for you. We put our gadgets through a rigorous testing process and carry out our taste tests fairly. Our restaurant and travel recommendations have all been tried by one of us.
We care about the food we eat, the people who produce it and the effect this has on the world. In our Test Kitchen, we use humanely reared British meats, free-range chicken and eggs, and sustainable fish whenever possible. We aim to help you avoid food waste, with advice on using leftovers (tune in to Facebook Live to see our #Fridayfood challenge, when we use up Test Kitchen leftovers).
Every recipe is analysed by our nutritional therapist, so you can be informed when you choose what to eat. We flag up vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free recipes. Find out more about our health philosophy on page 200.
Families and children
Families can need help to create harmonious mealtimes, so we address this by flagging up ‘family’ recipes. We encourage children and teenagers to get cooking with recipes that help them to learn new skills. Find out more at bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/category/family-kids.
Eating like a local
One of the joys of travel – both in the UK and overseas – is discovering great food. Our features are written from an insider perspective by on-theground writers and food and travel journalists.
Independent and respected
As you’d expect from a BBC brand, we are impartial and independent, so you can trust our advice and recommendations on everything from restaurants and wine to kitchen gadgets and more. We encourage your input on your local finds, and appreciate your feedback on our recommendations.
Food is our passion and pleasure
We take food seriously, but we also believe it’s a pleasure to be enjoyed and celebrated, whether cooking for the family, trying an unfamiliar ingredient, choosing wine, buying new products or eating out. We share our food discoveries and adventures with you – and love you to share the same with us daily on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat.
