Blog Content Your Culinary Brand Should Be Writing

We can’t say it enough: we’re passionate about culinary content. And one of the most effective ways to offer content to your fans is by blogging. Whether you are a restaurant, a destination, a brewery or an event planner, blogs are a great benefit to your business. Not only does blogging help you reach your audience online and build your reputation, it also improves your SEO and gets more people to your brand. This, in turn, opens more opportunities for reservations, bookings, sales, etc.

Now that you’ve set up your blog and you’re ready to put content on it, what do you write? A great place to start is by creating an editorial calendar, where you can brainstorm and plan ahead so that you have a good pipeline of content ready.

If writing isn’t your forte and crafting content is daunting, consider outsourcing this task. By partnering with a culinary content agency, you can collaborate with seasoned writers to help you decide what type of content would be best for your blog.

However you plan on getting your content up and running, we’re here to give you support. Here are a few types of blog post ideas, geared specifically toward culinary brands, to get you started.


Culinary brands getting on board with recipe creation just makes sense. Recipes are a hot commodity online, and people are always on the prowl for new dishes to whip up. Brands need only look at networks such as Pinterest or Facebook pages like Buzzfeed’s Tasty to see that recipes are a solid way to connect with your audience.

Meet the Team

Your brand is nothing without your team. While essential, your team members often work behind-the-scenes and out of the spotlight. Using your blog to introduce your employees is a nice nod to your team members and also shows that your brand is run by real people. Employee highlights are a way to get personal and humanize your brand.

Show that you are a thought-leader in your industry by sharing what’s new and up-and-coming in your niche. Others in your industry are constantly researching how to stay relevant.
