Welcome to Craving Boston! | WGBH | Craving Boston

Hi there, welcome to Craving Boston!

Whether you're checking in on your morning commute, or with a glass of wine in the evening when the kids are asleep, we’re your one-stop shop for all things food in Boston and New England. We hope you'll become a regular here.

Why should you trust us? We’re locals just like you. Some of us write about food for a living. Others work in restaurants or real estate or take care of children during the day. But what we all have in common is a shared passion for food in Boston and New England. We love shining the spotlight on the hard-working chefs and food producers in our region, as well as sharing delicious recipes that work... every time.

When WGBH approached me about this project, my first thought was of Julia! As creators of the original cooking show, they’ve built a reputation for producing quality food content, and spreading the word that Bostonians are about more than baked beans and clam chowder. I’m thrilled to work with their team and our talented pool of contributors to bring you even more local food coverage.

With this first edition of Craving Boston we’re serving up a little taste of what’s happening here on the local food scene. Whether you’re looking for foolproof recipes for dinner tonight, or you’re searching for your neighborhood’s best burger, we’ve got you covered.

I could keep yammering but I think it’s best to dig in and see for yourself. And if you have suggestions for stories you’d like to see on Craving Boston, we’d love to hear from you! Please use the form on our contact page to send us a note.

We’re curious, hungry, and so happy you’re here.
