Welcome to Zester Daily 2.0

Corie Brown

With great joy, and more than a little pride, we are thrilled to introduce our new Zester Daily website. After six months of design and development work, we hope you will find our new site to be more engaging and easier to use.

The new Zester Daily takes its authoritative voice on all things food and drink to the next level, providing more opinion pieces from food professionals as well as its team of talented national and international journalists. Coverage of the chefs and restaurants that define great food around the world will also expand. In addition, the site has a continually refreshed calendar of events in the food and beverage world, including festivals, conferences and competitions.

With the re-launch, Zester Daily is announcing a partnership with SmartBrief, the leading email news publisher, which will highlight Zester content in its daily food-oriented publications, including the Culinary Institute of America’s ProChef SmartBrief.

The heart of Zester Daily continues to beat to the rhythm of its 50 independent contributors, who follow their interests around the globe in search of stories that matter to our food-obsessed culture. The new site enables us to do an even better job of delivering on that core mission.

We appreciate your support for Zester Daily and hope you enjoy our new site — and please leave any comments, questions or suggestions.

    Looks great! I do find the all-caps headlines a little hard to read, and somehow the home page feels harder to navigate, but I’m sure it’s because it’s new and I’m not used to it yet. Overall I really like the new look.

      We agreed about the all-caps and switched to upper and lower case type. What do you think? Better?
