Who are we?
We are Eric and Véronique, the people behind Eatwell 101. We are cooking enthusiasts and while it’s not how we make our living – we’re the persons in our friendship group and families that seems to be always in the kitchen cooking small dishes for special occasions. Everyday we’re learning and improving our cuisine but we also love to share what we’ve learned so far.
We previously ran a cooking recipes website – and over the three years of that site we had a lot of contacts from regular readers asking for tips and techniques on how to improve their cooking skills, more than asking for recipes. We realized that while there are millions of persons in the world who cook regularly, still a very large portion of those would like to gain knowledge, cook healthier and achieve better results with their daily dishes.
Do you want to learn to cook and get the most out of your kitchen?
On our previous site we’ve shared a number of “tips” articles over the past years but it has largely been a site focused on cooking recipes. Because of this, we decided to start a site (almost) purely dedicated with “how to’s” tips.
That’s how Eatwell 101 was born.
Some of you who are advanced cooking amateurs might find some of what is written on this site a little basic, but’s it’s the beginner to semi experienced cook that this site is aimed at. That said, some more experienced cooks have already told us that reading our tips has been helpful to refresh their memories and remind them of lessons that they got some time ago.
In fact, we don’t offer a formal teaching form at all: there are no classes, no teachers, no exams – it’s rather a kind of “learning environment” where we think out loud about what we know, what we share and what we learn.
The information we offer here is free. We run very limited advertising and affiliate programs to help us cover costs and keep the blog running ( check our disclaimer page to read more about this) – however there isn’t any cost for our readers.
As we update this site on a regular basis, we think that the best way to get the most out of it will be to follow it over time. The best way to do this will be to use our subscription options: rss feeds and newsletter.

- I would like to advertise on your site. Contact us by email at hello @ eatwell101.com, we’ll be pleased to find a nice advertising solution for you on Eatwell101.
- How do I print a recipe? You can print any recipe using the little icon on top left of each post/article/recipe. You’ll be provided with various formats and printing options.
- How do I email a recipe? You can email any post to yourself or someone else by clicking on the email link at the top of each entry.
- Your site is full with errors and I feel obliged to send you a list of every one of them. It would be greatly appreciated! Eatwell101 is more or less a 3-4 persons operation, run by very imperfect human beings spinning out thousands of words a week. With this level of output, the odds of typos slipping in are extremely high. Moreover, english is the 3rd or 4th language for some of us, our idioms are sometimes idiotic, but our willingness to share with the more people as we can makes us force ourselves to learn and write everyday. Our writing isn’t so flowing sometimes and we apologize for that, but we hope to be able to be understood about 95% of the time (we let the remaining 5% for personal abstracts divagations!) So, we will feel very encouraged if you take the time to point us toward our errors and mistakes, as we’ll try to correct them accordingly.
- How can I convert easily the quantities in the recipes? We mainly use the metric system, associated with the american system when speaking about small amounts. We have a nice unit converter in the right side bar under the “Resources” panel.
- Can I publish one of your recipe on my site/blog/publication? Copying and publishing a full article without permission would be considered as a copyright violation. You can, of course, build and adapt on our material as long as you cite Eatwell101 explicitly as your source, with a link to our website. Lists of ingredients are not considered as copyrighted material, but editorials, directions and introductions are.
- Is there a way that I can contribute on Eatwell101 by submitting a recipe or as a guest blogger? Yes, we’ll be happy to examine your written material, and if it suits to our line we’ll gather with you to find an agreement. Use the “submit a story” form or contact us via hello @ eatwell101.com .
