NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The New York Times today announced digital subscriptions for NYT Cooking, its popular recipe site and app that helps home cooks discover and save the world’s best recipes and serves as a guide in the kitchen. The subscription is available today at NYTCooking.com/subscribe.
For $5 every four weeks, Cooking subscribers will have unlimited access to more than 18,000 tested and curated recipes from Times journalists past and present, including Melissa Clark, Julia Moskin, Tejal Rao, Sam Sifton, Mark Bittman, Craig Claiborne, Molly O'Neill, Ruth Reichl and many others. The subscription also includes all of the Recipe Box tools, which allow users to save recipes from anywhere on the web (in addition to Cooking recipes), as well as rate recipes and leave notes to help fellow cooks.
Edited by Food editor Sam Sifton, NYT Cooking features curated recipe collections and more than 40 Cooking Guides that make it easier for home cooks to learn the basics, while also providing the tools to help them become better, more accomplished cooks. Cooking has a monthly audience of approximately 10 million unique users and its newsletter has more than one million subscribers.
