Everybody seems busier at this time of year, and that’s especially true here at Fine Cooking, where we’re busy working on a major upgrade to our Web site. In addition to a fresh new look, more articles and recipes, and some exciting new tools for organizing your favorites, the new FineCooking.com will include premium content for members only, packed with exclusive videos, kitchen-tested recipes, and the current issue.
You’ll see some of the changes on the site in the next couple of weeks, but here’s a sneak peek at what the new FineCooking.com has to offer:

Complete recipe archive
Virtually every recipe we’ve published in Fine Cooking magazine will be available online to members—more than 2,500 in all. You’ll be able to find most of them in our recipe database, where you can rate, review and save your favorites; some, from the early issues, are offered as downloadable PDF files.
Improved search and navigation
Now there are more ways to find the recipes, videos, equipment reviews and technique articles you’re looking for. Search all of FineCooking or just recipes. Or you can “power browse” on our recipe channel, filtering recipes by cuisine, main ingredient, course, type of dish, and more.
Think of this new feature as your complete virtual recipe file—all your favorite recipes, all in one place. Upload your own personal recipes, save your favorite Fine Cooking recipes, and even bookmark your favorite recipes on other sites—then organize the entire collection however you like.
We’re expanding our how-to video library every month with demonstrations of the most essential culinary techniques, such as breading cutlets, peeling and seeding tomatoes, and making pan gravy.
Advice from the experts
Get one-on-one answers to your culinary questions, with our new Ask the Experts forum. Each month Fine Cooking authors and editors will be available to answer questions on their area of expertise, to help you get expert advice on topics ranging from grilling to bread baking to choosing and serving cheese. Post your question to the discussion board, and you’re guaranteed an answer.
Create your own recipe
Based on Fine Cooking‘s popular Cooking Without Recipes articles, these interactive features let you build your own recipe step by step, choosing ingredients, seasonings, and garnishes. We’re kicking off the feature with “Create Your Own Bean and Vegetable Soup.” In time for the holidays, you’ll also be able to create your own Thanksgiving stuffing, pot roast, fruit cobbler, and more.
Complete current issue online
