What on earth has happend to www.chow.com? Design and layout

Sadly... these big corporates dont have a clue. It isnt about content, it isnt about food. its about advertising, its about ROI and its about making money. MAXIMISING PROFIT.

Something great, and something creative has the LIFE SUCKED out of it becuase some big shot exec at the top decides the numbers need to be a little higher.

So all the creative people leave and the once fantastic product, goes down the toilet.

I have been a web designer for 11 years and this is a massive step backwards. It was a gorgeous site. It is a mess now

Hi Guys,

I haven't been on the site for some time. Probably about 2 years.

When I worked for Jamie Oliver, Chow had a great design, exciting editorial content, videos, awesome layout and typography.

We considered it a real benchmark for exciting and innovate food news online.

What has happened?

It seems to be just a mess of adverts, and a mish mash of content.

Did someone leave? Did the company get closed down or did the entire creative team just quit?

what happened, does anyone know?

Wheat Free products in the UK

Hi Everyone,

I am new to the forums of CHOW and wanted to ask about wheat free products in the UK, I have recently started cutting out bread due to problems digesting anything with wheat in it.

Does anyone know where in London I can get decent bread that is wheat free.

Is it;

1. Always so damn hard
2. allways so small, all the loafs i have found are tiny.

Any advice and tips on this would be fantastic.

Thank you
Robbie
