Digital outlet Tastemade has raised $35 million in a round of Series E funding.

The company's particular brand of aesthetically pleasing foodie content secured tasty investments from previous investors; Comcast Ventures, Redpoint Ventures, Raine Ventures and Liberty Media, as well as new support from Amazon and Cool Japan Fund.

This new investment brings Tastemade's fundraising total to a cool $80.3 million.

Tastemade has over a million subscribers on YouTube, as well as almost 40 million likes across multiple Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram pages. It also just debuted a feature film which premiered last month at the Los Angeles Film Festival.

“Tastemade has cemented its position as a leading lifestyle media brand for millennials around the world,” said Tastemade co-founder and CEO Larry Fitzgibbon.

“This funding will allow us to continue to develop a strong connection with our core audience through their passions for food, home & design, and travel, and bring new consumers into our worldwide community.”
