First of all, I’d like to extend you a warm welcome to Honest Cooking. In this very humble, but ambitious corner of the web, our hope and vision is that you will be able to find the most inspiring online food magazine in the world.Kalle Bergman Honest Cooking

Yes, we do set the bar high for ourselves, and we understand that the work ahead is huge, but with the fantastic team of contributors that is behind Honest Cooking I personally feel confident that we will have a good chance to give you – our reader – something uniquely appetizing.

So what can you expect from Honest Cooking? Well, first of all Honest Cooking is all about food and beverages. About living the good life. About the joy of cooking, eating, drinking and experiencing.

The group of people behind Honest Cooking – consisting of more than 200 of the world’s most fantastic food writers, bloggers, wine experts, beer maniacs, baristas, mixologists, food photographers and chefs – are all driven by a deeply rooted passion for the culinary world. Some focus on very technical aspects of wine production in France, some on how to make the perfect BBQ marinade – others on how to get the kids to eat their vegetables or where to dine in Paris. They are spread out across the world – from Shanghai and Hong Kong, via Sydney and Cape Town, throughout Europe, Canada, USA and across to Hawaii, ensuring that you will always get the international perspective.

Their worlds are literally worlds apart. What unites them is that they all believe in good honest cooking, honest writing and honest products.

Now, enough with the self promotion. Let’s eat!

      I’ve been a fan of yours since you started blogging but I have to admit that I have been a lurker (laugh). Wonderful site Kalle and I’m really looking forward to devouring the offerings.

      Congratulations and much success!

    Hey Kalle — you’re my new hero. Beautiful, informative ‘magazine’ you have here. Makes me not quite so sad that Gourmet died — those are big shoes to fill, but maybe you can do it! Hope so,

    Thanks for the salmon piece. I’ll try it tonight.

    Love the site already – terrific job getting such talent together in one site. But try, if you can, to convince the contributors to add a couple of process pictures (or even short videos) for the trickier recipes, to let the less-experienced foodies among us understand what’s going on and learn from the masters. Oh, and ratings!

    • Kalle Bergman Reply

      April 13, 2011 at 4:18 pm

      Hey Jens, thanks for the nice comment – much appreciated!

      I’m sure you’ll see some process pics going forward, AND we’ve just introduced a new recipe format where you can rate the recipes – it will be implemented over the coming weeks.

      Again, thanks – have a great evening.

      All the best

    Good day Kalle, I tried to send my info but when I click on your email adress I get a message that says my default mail server is not properly installed. Not quite sure what to do about that but if and when you have time maybe you could email me and I will get back to you. Can’t wait to look through all of your articles and recipes. I got here by a link on my Facebook through Spicie Foodie.

    I love this site. We belong to a farm co-op and they give us some veggies we’ve never used. So often we are given the advice of salads or stir fry. I was so tired of salad and stir fry. Then I found this AMAZING site which listed delicious recipes to use our new wonderful veggies. PLUS, so many of the ingredients are already in my kitchen! Thank you for helping me make the most of our farm!
