Have you been coming here and wondering where all your delicious food news has gone? Don’t worry, we’re still doing plenty of reporting. We’ve just got a new home for 2016. We’ve partnered with Kansas City Public Television and their digital magazine, Flatland. Our content will live right here for the rest of the year. In the interim, here’s a quick recap below of what you’ve been missing (if you didn’t know about our new partnership or your RSS feed has been waiting for an update).

Cheers, The Recommended Daily Team.
