Chow (website)

Chow is a food website owned by CBS Interactive. It is home to the food message board Chowhound.

Chowhound

Chowhound is a popular online food discussion board founded by Jim Leff and Bob Okumura in 1997, known for its user base of food fanatics. In 2006, they sold the board to CNET Networks, which took over and redesigned the site, merging it with CHOW magazine, redirecting the chowhound.com domain to chowhound.chow.com, but keeping its busy forums, grouped by locale.

Book series

Penguin USA has published two Chowhound restaurant guides, The Chowhound's Guide to the San Francisco Bay Area and The Chowhound's Guide to the New York Tristate Area.
