At Goldbelly, we’re passionate foodies who want to share our expert food knowledge and passion with our readers. Our goal is to educate, support, and truly help you understand everything you need to know about food! This means we’re constantly working to provide accurate, expert, and easy to understand information that you can trust.

Our editorial team is staffed by seasoned editors, writers and content professionals, with decades of experience in print and digital media, and of course, food writing. We also reach out to Goldbelly’s partner merchants and chefs, who are small business food purveyors with incredible experience and expertise in their cuisine, to provide additional expertise and research for our content.

We are committed to:

  • Accuracy: We continuously research, edit, review and regularly update content to ensure we’re providing accurate information you can trust. All content is fact-checked before publication. Our writers rely on primary sources and authoritative sources, including interviews, industry websites, data and documents, to ensure our content is as clear and complete as possible.
  • No Use of AI: We aspire to provide the highest quality content produced by humans, for humans. It is against our guidelines to publish automatically generated content using AI (artificial intelligence) writing tools such as ChatGPT.
  • Originality: Our team strives to create original, helpful, and fair content, which means our content must be verified, properly attributed, and may not infringe upon the copyright or anyone’s intellectual property rights. Any suggestion of plagiarism is investigated fully. We expect all contributors to abide by all applicable laws, standards, and accepted journalistic practices such as Copyright Law of the United States and Fair Use.
  • Transparency: All our content specifies a published date that reflects when it was most recently updated. We also include an author byline so you know not only that the content was written and edited by humans, but also, which author specifically.
  • Credentials/Expertise: All Goldbelly content is authored by professional writers and journalists, with a track record of notable publications which can be found on their author page, or by Goldbelly-affiliated food experts, like a celebrity chef, or iconic restaurant. All content is fact-checked, reviewed, and edited by a professional editor before publication.
  • Inclusion & Diversity: Food culture is an amazing pathway to share and celebrate diversity! We strive to elevate BIPOC food cultures and voices in our content.
  • Corrections: Our editorial team is committed to producing high quality, factually accurate content. If there is an inadvertent error, we will correct it as soon as possible.
  • Feedback: Your comments, suggestions, or corrections are always welcome! You can reach our editorial team at blog@goldbelly.com.
