About Just a Taste
Welcome to Just a Taste, where you’ll find inspiration for any meal and every occasion with hundreds of tried-and-tested recipes, step-by-step photo tutorials, and cooking videos that help you prepare easy but impressive dishes the whole family will love.
Why “Just a Taste?” I have my great-grandmother, Momoo, to thank as my first inspiration in the kitchen. She constantly reminded me to have just a taste of dessert after every meal, and my grandmother and mom continued the tradition by passing down their passions for all things culinary. I’ve never believed in diets but instead enjoy everything in moderation, and hence, Just a Taste was born!
What started as a way to catalog my family’s rich recipe history has since turned into an online destination visited by millions of people a month who cook and share Just a Taste recipes from their kitchens around the world.
As our Just a Taste community has grown, so too has my own family. In 2016, shortly before the birth of my son, I launched Just a Taste Parents to provide tips, insights, and resources for all types of parents and kids of all ages.
About Kelly Senyei
I am an on-camera host and professionally trained chef who develops all of the recipes, styles all of the food, takes all of the photos and washes all of the dishes for the countless creations coming out of my kitchen!
I received my undergraduate degree from Northwestern University, my master’s degree in broadcast television from The Graduate School of Journalism at Columbia University and my culinary arts diploma with highest honors from The Institute of Culinary Education in New York City. I completed my apprenticeship in the Food Network Kitchens and previously worked at Condé Nast as an editor and on-air talent at Gourmet and Epicurious.
My husband and I live in Newport Beach, California with our son, Julian, and our dog, Wiley.
- Just a Taste was launched at 2 a.m. on a random Thursday in 2008 while I decided to do anything but write my graduate school thesis.
- I once walked 5 miles and ate nine doughnuts in a single morning during the first-ever Just a Taste Doughnuthon.
- My all-time favorite food is doughnuts (See above).
- My book, Food Blogging For Dummies, was published in 2012 by John Wiley & Sons, Inc., which is how our dog Wiley got his name.
- I crossed off a major bucket list item when I cooked with Matt Lauer on the TODAY Show and made two of my all-time favorite recipes.
- I once cooked in a rehearsal battle of Iron Chef America and the secret ingredient was popcorn!
