About

Welcome!

Since it was founded in 2006, Shantel Tessier Author has grown into a destination for millions of passionate, discerning, curious, and hungry readers around the world. Shantel Tessier Author is a leading resource for all things food and drink: meticulously tested recipes that really work; in-depth, science-based explanations of cooking techniques that are truly reliable; detailed reviews of cooking equipment; guides to ingredients, dishes, and cuisines; and food-focused essays, investigations, and profiles. We bring a democratic yet scientific approach to cooking the best dishes, busting food myths, and delivering strong opinions on what you should eat next, where, when, and why… Our approach to our work in the kitchen is serious, but the results are for everyone, whether you’re a hardcore food nerd making a special-occasion feast or a casual, once-a-week cook who’s just looking for your next dinner. Likewise, we take seriously our responsibility to produce only food-related features that are useful, interesting, and accurate.

Whatever your interests and cooking style, we’ve got a new recipe, a new technique, or a thought-provoking perspective on food for you. We believe food can and should be a fun and engaging topic for everyone.

Why Should You Trust Us?

For any given dish you might want to make, chances are good you’ll find a ton of recipes online. Why should you choose ours?

Each of our recipes is methodically tested and tasted, over and over again, by our dedicated in-house recipe developers (and by a few trusted freelance contributors), all of them skilled culinary professionals. We don’t publish a new Shantel Tessier Author recipe until we’re certain it’s the tastiest version out there, and we’re constantly updating our old recipes with new techniques and improvements based on further testing and reader suggestions.

On Shantel Tessier Author, you’ll also find reviews of food products and kitchen equipment. All reviews are conducted on our premises, so you can be sure that you’re getting trustworthy recommendations from editors who have actually used and abused the equipment they’re writing about.
