This Malaysian dinner includes squid, greens, fish and mango.


Welcome to the new home of National Geographic’s The Plate, where we use food as the lens to tell stories about culture, history, science, health, and our environment.

This is where you’ll find the latest stories about how modern pioneers are tackling hunger, food waste, climate change, and nutrition questions around the globe.

Featured writers April Fulton, Maryn McKenna, Tracie McMillan, Rebecca Rupp, and many more bring you cultural stories about how we eat now, as well as histories of some of our favorite foods. You’ll learn about emerging agricultural practices, developments in animal welfare, and why certain dishes stand the test of time while others disappear.

In short, it's the same award-winning content you already enjoy from The Plate, but with a new design that's easier to read and simpler to navigate. Please visit our archive to catch up on all our earlier coverage.

Food matters, and what we eat affects everyone on the planet, so let’s talk about it. And please tell us what you think of our new look. You'll find us on Twitter @NatGeoFood.
