The beta launch of Gilt Taste went live on May 16th. The name Gilt may ring a bell; Gilt Taste is part of Gilt Groupe which offers hand-selected luxury brands at member-only prices. Gilt Taste focuses on the culinary world - from artisan foods, seasonal ingredients, and specialized tools for the kitchen. What's also notable is the great content Gilt Taste features in its Stories section. There are recipes, commentary, and other articles about food. Let's say thanks to former Gourmet editor in chief Ruth Reichl who is serving as editorial advisor to the operation.
Be sure to check out Gilt Taste and see what products are available for sale. In June they'll be rolling out weekly specials that are available in limited quantity, similar to Gilt's other flash-sale sites.
You don't need to register on Gilt Taste to view the wonderful products. However, if you plan to make a purchase, an account is required. You'll need an invite for that. Don't have one, follow this invitation link.
