Content Guidelines

[td_block_text_with_title custom_title=”Content And Publishing Guidelines.”]EPIC CHOW DOWN takes information publishing seriously.

We believe that our media should always strive to be accurate, useful, and entertaining, which is why every piece of content we publish is held to the highest editorial standards.

Our mission is to help smart and creative individuals unleash the power of chow to upgrade their life and become the best cook in the room.

Our promise is to promote and offer an unbiased perspective on culinary art and its creative applications for the home cook; without myths or dogmas that get in the way of a good meal.

Some of our values and beliefs include:

Simplicity & Elegance: We believe that good design should provide both visual appeal as well as effective content structure. We strive to make every piece of content actionable and interesting – without fluff or filler.

Evidence-Based & Scientific Approach: We believe that information is a powerful tool to improve the collective future of humanity. However, it can only be as effective as its accuracy which is why we carefully review the accuracy of everything we publish. We will always openly cite our sources and references when available and encourage independent review and criticism.

Sharing & Collaboration: We believe that the pursuit of knowledge necessitates constant interaction with the environment and peers to test new ideas, debate opinions, gain new perspective or collect more data to build more effective models. For this reason we will always honor, value and respect those who came before us as well as our contemporary peers and colleagues.

Evolution of Ideas: We believe that opinions and hypotheses are the starting point on the journey to discovery. We also believe in the value and necessity of evolving ideas in the exploration process as more information becomes available. That is why we encourage the investigation of opposing arguments and consider every piece of content we create as a living entity, bound to grow and change over time.[/td_block_text_with_title][td_block_text_with_title custom_title=”Author And Contributor Selection.” separator=”” tdc_css=””]EPIC CHOW DOWN manually reviews and evaluates potential authors and contributors according to the following criterias:

Knowledge & Experience: Our first priority is to make sure that we cover every topic with integrity and accuracy. That is why each author and contributor we add to the team is selected based on their own unique mix of real life experience and specialized knowledge.

Professionalism & Gravitas: We acknowledge that more than a competitive advantage, preserving a solid reputation and establishing a positive culture is an obligation to our audience, our colleagues and our community. For this reason, only individuals with the highest standards and values, in alignment with our purpose, are offered the opportunity to work with us.

Inspiration & Enthusiasm: Last but not least, we understand that passion spreads from one individual to another. Therefore we place great importance on a potential partner’s ability to create inspired, entertaining and engaging content that people will want to read and share.

Therefore when an author or contributor is published on our platform, it means that we have deemed this individual worthy of representing our ideals, values, and beliefs, and have given them our seal of approval.

We do not accept guest posts or content submission at the moment.

Doing so allows us to promote new ideas, creative innovations and encourage lively debates around important topics.

We will never, under any circumstances, attempt to pass third-party work or content as our own and every effort will always be made to give proper credit and attribution as well as a link back to the original source.
