Maybe a fair way out of your area , but I think the New Zealand magazine "Cuisine" is far better than anything we have in Australia and anything that I have come accross in the English speaking world.

Packed full of "useful" stuff on anything and everything related to great food and drink. Its about thickest mag I have ever seen and I find I am only 3/4 of the way thru one month as the next one comes out. Certainly would give you a different slant on things. I would be happy to send you an old copy if you email me your details.

Here is their website anyway.

Cuisine

"Eating Well", recently risen from the ashes and back in full publication. Most cross-disciplinary magazine I've run into and I go out of my way to make sure I don't miss an issue.

website: www.eatingwell.com

Food Art

"Food Art" is probably my favorite. If you are a professional, it helps you keep on top the lastest trends and what's new in the culinary arts world. Plus, if your trolling for ideas, it can send you in a direction you may not have thought of before. Best of all, it's free.

magazine

Food arts is great, as well as Art Culinaire (expensive and a bit arrogant though). To be honest, sometimes I take the old Gourmet or Food and Wine and sit in the tub for a few hours.

favorite food magazine??

hands down favorite is "cooks illustrated". when it comes to someone who will try variation after variation of a recipe until it is right, "cooks" is the best.
of course, your taste buds have to be similar to "cooks" to enjoy their pick
for best recipe, but at least they defend their positions.

If you are in the industry and like to keep up with what is going on then "Food Arts" is the best, even if you have to pay for it. Though I find Art Culinaire a beautiful book/magazine with some great ideas, I don't think it is worth the price you pay for it, and though I do glean some ideas from it, I find it lacks in any substantive information. I have come to dislike Gourmet, in recent years. It seems they are turning away, more and more, from being a food magazine, to being a travel magazine, though I do still find some great things in there. Cook's Illustrated is a good magazine and they really go in depth on some issues, and I like the fact they they don't have tons of advertisments like most other magazines. But something about that magazine seems to be lacking. Im not sure what it is, and of course, that is a personal opinion. That leaves Food & Wine and Bon Apetite, which are the mainstream food magazines out there. Between the 2 I prefer Bon Apetite. Again, just a personal preferance. Of course there are all those other healthy cooking magazines out there, which I really cant discuss, as I don't read them on a regular basis.

I agree with Pete about Food Arts and would also recommend Fine Cooking and Saveur. I would suggest going to a newsstand and looking through the various food magazines to see which ones appeal to you or go on web sites to get a feel for the magazines contents.

Oh man, how could I have forgotten Saveur. I love that magazine, though my subscription ran out awhile ago and I haven't yet renewed. It is a great magazine.

Now that is good advice! :D See which magazine YOU are comfortable with. Do you want something you might actually cook from? Something with lots of useful information, if not a wide variety of recipes each issue? Something just to drool over, but that you'll never actually use?

My personal favorites are:
Fine Cooking
Australian Vogue Entertaining + Travel
Food Arts

I also get Gourmet, Bon Appetit, and Saveur, but that's more because I need to keep up with their content and style (for work), not because I like to read them.
