Soapbox is a digital magazine written by the chefs, mixologists, sommeliers, and other restaurant personnel at the country's best chef-driven restaurants. Designed to showcase the inspirations, philosophies and backgrounds of restaurant personnel, Soapbox lets chefs speak for themselves.
Soapbox content is created by the chefs themselves, with no editing or curatingm via the personal and restaurant profiles they create on Spoonfeed. Through targeted questions and in-depth profiles, restaurants and their personnel are able to effectively craft and share their brand online, communicating their message to diners, media, concierges, and event planners. Aimed at promoting the true activities of these people and places, Soapbox uses modern technologies to help chef-driven restaurants connect with audiences that matter.
Mediafeed connects media to the restaurant industry. For free. We believe media want to talk to chefs, not publicists. And we believe chefs can speak for themselves, thank you very much. So we are connecting media to all of our members at no cost. Ever. We can't imagine it any other way. Of course, it is also free for the media, both traditional and new.
All basic and premium Spoonfeed members get full access to Mediafeed inquiries for free.
