SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 12, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Chefs Feed, the leading food industry network and media platform, has announced new APIs to syndicate food and restaurant recommendations to travel, hospitality, luxury and other media and commerce sites nationwide. By leveraging the Chefs Feed API, partners can now offer expert reviews of thousands of restaurants in 25 major markets, straight from the mouths of one thousand of the country's best chefs.
"Chefs Feed is the go-to source to find where the best chefs eat when they leave their own kitchens," says Varun Shetty, director of business development of Foursquare. "Now, they're sharing that knowledge with Foursquare and leaving tips at their favorite restaurants and eateries across the globe. Following Chefs Feed on Foursquare is like being on a first name basis with the greatest culinary minds on the planet."
Chefs Feed is being leveraged by popular food-focused mobile platforms Foursquare and Urbanspoon, which offer their users Chefs Feed dish recommendations as "Popular Dish" and "Tips." Other syndicated content partnerships with Red Bull and Virgin America have led to expanded relationships.
"The Chefs Feed API adds an additional layer of incredibly engaging content around food that will further connect publishers with their audience," says Chefs Feed CEO Rich Maggiotto. "We've built a robust catalog of photos, tips and videos featuring popular chefs that allows media and commerce sites to help readers decide where to eat and what to order based on mobile geo location technology."
