Gilt Groupe, the members-only shopping site, has launched Gilt Taste, another members-only site that will sell small quantities of artisanal foods and ingredients that you’ve only eaten in fancy restaurants. That’s largely because these items are usually available exclusively to chefs.
“Gilt Taste is also an interactive magazine,” the site says. The website has brought on former Gourmet editor/NY Times restaurant critic Ruth Reichlwho, along with a set of writers, chefs, photographers, and others will bring tons of editorial content along with the foods for sale.
“It’s a place to meet a new generation of farmers, the men and women who are tilling the land in sustainable ways, saving seeds and raising happy animals. It is a celebration of food, mostly American,” Reichl wrote in a welcome letter.
