The Web component of CNN, CNN.com, announced Wednesday the creation of Eatocracy, a food blog that will cover all aspects of the public’s fascination with food, from culture to trends to dialogue and debate. The site, www.CNN.com/Eatocracy, is part of the CNN multiplatform expansion of the TV and news brand.
Former AOL Food and Slashfood senior editor Kat Kinsman will oversee the new outlet for CNN.
In a statement, Kinsman said, “Through a combination of active engagement with CNN.com users, our editors’ expertise and connections to the farmers, chefs and major players in the food world, and original lick-the-screen photography, we’ll create a real-time portrait of how the world eats. We want to create an Eatocracy, where everyone has a place at the table.”
