In all that The Takeout is and does, we hope that the message is resoundingly clear: Food is delicious. And in our efforts to celebrate everything from chicken sandwiches (sorry) to ham cookies (less sorry) to the Worst Thanksgiving Ever (not sorry at all), we are left with a byproduct of endless joy and delight that lingers long after hitting “Publish.” It’s hard, sometimes, to find an outlet for all that joy, and to celebrate each article as much as we’d like to—because in digital media, it’s not considered good form to post an update to every story that says, “Wasn’t this a great read? Just such a treat!”

But now it’s the end of the year, the end of the decade, and we can throw caution to the winds like two romcom characters under a sprig of mistletoe. This is where we, the staff of The Takeout—including some returning audience favorites!—each take a moment to celebrate some of the writing we enjoyed most in 2019.

DISCUSSION

I just wanted to say thanks to all of you for such a great blog. It has improved my cooking a lot, and introduced me to a bunch of easily accessible (and some not so easily accessible!) recipes that have made my life better. It’s also just such a lovely oasis in a sea of internet grossness. I always leave happier than I came.

It sucks to have lost Kevin and Kate this year, but Allison is already absolutely crushing it, and I really look forward to seeing what new deliciousness The Takeout 2020 brings to my life!
