Latina magazine’s sister site, The Latin Kitchen, is all about celebrating the connection between food and the culture of English-speaking Latinos. As a niche food-and-drink site, The Latin Kitchen is able to set itself apart from other online foodie destinations.
“We don’t have any direct competitors, but we look at sites like Epicurious, Food Republic, Delish, Huffington Post Food and others,” said editor-at-large Marie Elena Martinez. With a strong focus on Latin traditions, The Latin Kitchen gives its readers something more than just the standard tips on how to make the best burgers.
The Latin Kitchen is 75 percent freelance written and no section is off limits; however, if you plan on pitching its most popular section, “Recipes,” you’ll need to follow strict guidelines:
Recipe developers must have their own successful food blog and recipes must be triple-tested before submission. If the recipe is not original to the contributor, permission must be obtained from the chef, mixologist or cookbook author who created it.
Writers looking to land a byline might also want to include their own high-resolution photographs with their submissions, which helps out the small in-house staff.
