I was not sure where to post this
I am just curious-
who writes the recipes? and how are they tested?
Today is the first time I used one of Chow's recipes.
I chose moist banana bread-It is not yet out of the oven-I hope it tastes as good as it is making my house smell.
I have had some amazing results when using Chow recipes. The cola braised short ribs in a pressure cooker come to mind.
I have also had miserable failures. The Boston ice cream pie cake was a disaster.
Could you please take a moment to clarify this statement? Or does the change in moderation include a policy that questions you don't want to answer about statements you've made or chow policy will be ignored without courtesy of a reply?
Yo've created confusion with your answer, and I'd like some clarity on the point.
In December 2013 the Chow.com culinary staff who developed and tested recipes were laid off. The change away from publishing original recipes and videos was announced here,
At the time I was told by insiders that Chow test kitchen closed down too.
