In most cases, you will be responsible for purchasing your own equipment and supplies, although we can provide an allowance for fuel and supplies. From time to time, we will purchase products or ingredients for you to cook with for the purpose of reviewing, and in some cases where we have relationships with companies, they will send you free review products.

  • Work with the editorial team to brainstorm future recipe and review ideas
  • Improve, reshoot, and update old recipes
