CHOW's food Community has new and improved tools. In addition to our in-depth discussions, you can now ask a question for food experts to answer, share your newest food photos in a Photo Story, or start a conversation about food-related links from across the web.


Discussions are the tried-and-true, original Community post type. If you're looking for debate, you'll find it here.

Example: "Help me build a great cookware set!"


Q&A is designed for quick questions, with the best answers voted up by the Community. While many topics are a better fit for in-depth discussion, Q&A is aimed at delivering answers (either fact or opinion) in a timely fashion.

Example: "Would you stuff deviled eggs with a meat/protein blend?"

Photo Stories

Photo Stories make it much easier to share multiple photos with the Community. With one photo or many, you can share your home cooking tips, a tasting menu, a clever cocktail creation, and more. Your photos are displayed in an easy-to-view list format, and can even be numbered for step-by-step creations.

Example: "Mexico City & Puebla Report"


Kicking off a conversation with a link is very popular in the Community. This feature makes it easier to share great recipes, articles, and content from other sources. It will automatically pull in titles and descriptions from the shared link and render everything in a beautiful way that will make the reader want to know more about the shared content.
