BBC Food website to close

sausages with red onion

Yesterday the BBC announced that BBC Food, along with a few other websites, will be shuttered as part of a larger cost-saving plan. Before you get too upset, please note that the company’s commercial site, BBC Good Food, will carry on.

The BBC Food site contains over 11,000 recipes, which will not be searchable after the site closes, although you will be able to find the recipe if you know the URL. That means any recipes currently indexed on EYB (currently 291 recipes) should remain linked. If you have any favorites from the site that you haven’t yet Bookmarked, now is the time to do it. BBC Food contains recipes from well-known names like Nigella Lawson, James Martin, Nigel Slater, Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, and Hairy Bikers, including their Glamorgan sausages with red onion and chilli relish recipe shown above.

A BBC spokesperson explained the process: “We currently have two websites and we’ll move to one. The recipes you love will still be available and we’ll migrate as much of the content as possible to the BBC Good Food website. So you’ll still be able to carry on baking and cooking with the BBC.”

    Noooo ๐Ÿ™ I loved this website and I don't care much about the BBC Good Food one. If the recipes remain linked that is a bit of a consolation but no more browsing. I hope my next favourite news / food branch websites don't follow suit (NY Times and Le Monde)

Seen anything interesting? Let us know & we'll share it!
