We’re debuting a new weekly food newsletter. Here’s a taste.

Our food writers will share what’s on their plates every Wednesday.

We’re excited to debut a bigger, better newsletter from the food team here at the Tampa Bay Times.

On Wednesday, Nov. 13, you can start getting our Taste newsletter in your inbox. If you’re already subscribed to our Cooking newsletter, you don’t need to do anything. If you’re not, head to and find the Taste option.

The newsletter will remain weekly, but it will move from Thursdays to Wednesdays and feature more restaurant stories in addition to weekly recipes. You’ll hear directly from me, the food editor, and our food critic Helen Freund about dining news and reviews, our latest cooking projects and what we’re currently loving at Tampa Bay restaurants.

Questions? Concerns? Ideas for features you’d like to see? Email me or Helen at and We’ll talk to you soon.
