What happened to the old format of this website? The new format is dominated by advertising, rather than the enticing photos of food!

Face it, the Internet is not free. If we want the amazing staff of food52 to keep this up, they have to get paid. Our choice is pay up (not given as an option, but think, how much would it be?) or let the advertisers pay. As for "enticing photos of food" they're in generous supply, along with videos worth watching, recipes and articles worth our time...

Agree and grateful. At least there's no pop ups.

totally agree, Mia. I didn't perceive you as complaining at all. There is no need for rudeness here.

Not being rude, just asking for grace when being given a free excellent product.
