How do I rate a recipe, or write a review of a recipe?
We encourage you to rate and review recipes you've made from the site: Sound off on what worked, what didn't work, and what you did to make a recipe your own. Our community's recipe reviews and ratings are a big part of what makes Epicurious the best recipe site on the web. You guys know your stuff!
To rate and review a recipe: Sign in to your Epicurious account, click the "write review" button on the recipe page, and select your fork rating. (Please note that if you're the first person to rate and review a recipe, it might not display on the recipe page immediately. No need to submit it multiple times, it'll show up soon, we promise!)
I see a recipe review I'm pretty sure is spam (or just plain not appropriate). What do I do?
The Internet can sometimes be an ugly place, but we're sorry if you saw that point proven here. Click the "flag as inappropriate" button next to the problematic review and it will be reviewed, and removed if necessary, by someone on our staff.
We work hard to keep our community lively, fair, and well-lit: You can review our User Agreement here.

On the Member Recipe Upload page, you can choose to share your uploaded recipe with other Epicurious users, or make your recipe "private" and not viewable by others.
Is it okay to add a recipe from a cookbook to the Member Recipe Database?

How do I delete a personal recipe from the Member Recipe Database?
Once a recipe is uploaded the actual record of the recipe can't be deleted, but it can be made private and not viewable.
I'd like to make one of my recipes private. How can I do that?
