Bon Appetit Magazine named Durham “America’s Foodiest Small Town” in 2008, and the city’s food scene has only amplified since. Every week, there seems to be a new food truck, stand at the farmer’s market, or beer festival popping up downtown. Duke students are constantly swapping recipes, recommending favorite dishes from local restaurants, and reading online food blogs. The Bite, Duke University’s student-run food magazine, embraces Durham’s foodie side—providing students the opportunity to learn about local businesses and show off their skills in the kitchen.

With a focus on innovation and an eye for mouth-watering cuisine, The Bite aims to invigorate the conversation around food on Duke’s campus and beyond.

The food we eat, make, and grow tell stories—and we recruit writers, photographers, graphic designers, editors, and budding chefs alike to be a part of that storytelling process. Whether you’re looking for a new recipe or just seeking restaurant advice, we’re here to help you navigate Durham’s culinary wonderland.
