The electronic Gourmet Guide (aka eGG) site launched in 1994 under a domain name that was later sold. In 1995 the eGG became foodwine.com. In 1996 globalgourmet.com was born, and in 1998 all the sites merged into The Global Gourmet®.
"A gourmet treat..."
—Jenni Muir, writing in "The Good Web Guide to Food" book and website, April 2001.
—Christine G.K. LaPado, writing for the newsreview.com website, January 19, 2006.
"The pungent fish sauce of Vietnam, Tunisia's hazelnut cream with grilled sesame seeds, Belgium endive, and caipirinha, the national cocktail of Brazil: these are the foods of the Global Gourmet. This website, which features some of the most interesting food related content on the web, offers a wealth of articles and recipes..."
—Ann Audette, writing in Earth & Table Digest, October 2000.
"Trips to exotic countries are often about tasting the best local cuisine you can find—and with the help of The Global Gourmet, you will. Though the site has some regular columns on general domestic food, its real strength lies in the "global destinations" section, which gives information on the customs, tastes, and dining for Turkey, Vietnam, and approximately twenty other countries... And the list keeps growing. Even better, the where-to guide is accompanied by a how-to guide, which gives recipes for a sampling of dishes you might experience if and when you do make the trip."
—A Few More Bites, PBS: Julia Child & The Master Chefs (September, 2000)
"When I go online, I look for much more than recipes, and this site's a real education in food and culture. Some days it concentrates on Turkish food, say, with good original recipes and commentary by really knowledgeable people. The editor, Kate Heyhoe, is one of the best food writers in the country. I try to visit the site often just to see what she's thinking."
—Mollie Katzen, host of "Mollie Katzen's Cooking Show" on PBS and author of many cookbooks, including the "Moosewood Cookbook (1977)" and "Honest Pretzels (1999)," writing in Health Magazine's 25 Best Web Sites for Women in April 2000
"Unpretentious, quality, traditional food magazine, from editor Kate Heyhoe; regular departments, features, and recipe archive with wide range of recipes, mostly from cookbooks and chefs; high quality, diverse, appealing. Good cookbook review section and archive..."
—My Food Directory September 2000
"Founded in 1994, this quirky and informative site is the brainchild of Thomas Way and Kate Heyhoe, who roared onto the gastronomic freeway early and have built a strong, entertaining site. When I called up some of the seasonal menus, I got more history and etymology about ingredients than I could digest in one sitting, but the recipes worked well..."
—Bryan Miller, "A Food Site for Every Appetite," New York Times September 22, 1999
"Not your mother's 'Joy of Cooking,' this hip site serves up cooking tips, easy-to-follow recipes and culinary news."
—Beatrice's Web Guide, Women.com
"...www.foodwine.com is chock full of interesting stuff."
—Bart Ziegler, writing in the Personal Technology column, Wall Street Journal January 8, 1998
"Imagine the gallery reception. There you are among the wine and cheese crowd and you need a primer on how to speak to them. Enter foodwine.com, with recipes, recommendations, and lighthearted food fun to ensure the success of any swanky soiree."
—NetGuide Live's Best of the Web (overall rating: 4-stars), February, 1997
"Culinary cultists will crave to digest this tasty page. Probably one of the best sites delegated to cooking on the Web. Huge helpings of everything palatable. Enjoy."
—Excite Food & Drink Reviews January 1997
"The favorite site: Foodwine with a 73 out of 100 rating. It rated tops in visual appeal, ease of navigation and up-to-date information and was found extremely useful by 57% of respondents."
—USA TODAY/Intelliquest Survey December 19, 1996
"The premier foodie web publication..."
—Gary Holleman, author of Food and Wine Online writing in his online newsletter, June 11, 1996
"...a number of outstanding electronic magazines, or e-zines, as they are called, are dedicated to food and dining. One of the most accessible for professional and amateur chefs is the popular electronic Gourmet Guide."
—New York Times December 13, 1995
