Bon Aippetit truly appreciates you support as a reader. As always, the site is a place for fun but I want to be upfront and honest about its policies.  I feel that it is important to let you know the facts.




The site provides recipes and information based upon my own personal experience only and in no way does any of the content hosted here constitute any kind of medical or dietary advice, since I am not a doctor, nutritionist or health coach.

Unless otherwise specified all content including recipes, photographs, graphics, etc., are copyrighted to Beth Jacques Chen.  While I would love for you to use my images, they are not to be used without written consent.  If my images are used without consent, it is considered copyright infringement and may be subject to fees.  For information on licensing please contact me at

If I adapt a recipe, which I then feature on the site, I do my best to link back to the original source.



Sponsored Content + Ads

If a company has paid to be featured on this site, I will identify the sponsored content either in the post title within within the post.  I will always disclose when something has been given to me for free or if I received compensation for writing about it.

If a company decides to send me a product, I do not guarantee that it will be featured on this site, nor will I return the product unless an arrangement is made in advance.

At this time, Bon Aippetit does not offer sidebar advertisements.
