I love Epicurious--I check out their site nearly every day (and Cooking Light--that's good too)--but it has long bugged me that they don't include nutritional info for their recipes, as do AllRecipes and Cooking Light. I wrote to Epicurious last week suggesting that they could provide nutritional info for their recipes so that readers could see at a glance whether the recipe was feasible for their diet, and I observed that all people should be cognizant of their fat and calorie consumption and should be able to make informed and educated choices about what they eat. Epicurious, I said, could help with this process by including nutritional info. I also said that providing nutritional info wouldn't obligate them to start producing masses of low-fat or low-cal recipes--there are times when I'm happy to cook something elegant and high in calories, and other recipes can be doctored. Nutritional information isn't just for people on diets.
So, I got a reply yesterday--they basically told me to b*gger off. They have a low-cal section of recipes on their site, and that should be enough for me. (I just checked--even the 'low-cal' section doesn't give nutritional info!) My original email was very thoughtful--I am a bit miffed that they didn't at least *read* my message seriously and respond to it properly.
Ah well. Se la vie.
