Policies and Principles
No retailer, grocer, vendor or manufacturer can pay to be included here. Integrity and credibility matter to us, and The City Cook won't sell veiled access to the kitchens of New York's home cooks. Because our palates are personal and subjective, all comments included here at The City Cook are the opinions of its editors. To be included in The City Cook is something special and any stores and vendors mentioned here are selected because we believe they are among the best in the city and each one has been visited, shopped and evaluated. We want you to know this because we want you to trust us. And while you may not always agree with our evaluations or our palate, at least you can be sure that the worst we'll be guilty of is bad taste, not bad behavior.
