Food magazines?

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
What's the best food magazine out there? What magazine really has some good substance, good articles, maybe some food history and trends, and maybe a few recipes?

Not sure about the best food magazine, but I enjoy:

  • Food Art
  • Bon Appétit
  • Plate

Lucky Peach is the best right now IMHO

I really like the Australian Gourmet Traveller. A subscription is pricey but they are also on line. Great recipes and excellent photography.

I like Bon Appetite, Fine Cooking and Cook's Illustrated.  I subscribe to Cook's because I like the science they present that is usable beyond the recipe they are using it with.

Same here. I get a gifted sub every year for Christmas, and love it. They also have other sections too that are helpful like kitchen equipment ratings. They are extremely candid and detailed on why some products are best and why some aren't so good. Plus all the recipe's I've ever cooked from it are 100% fool proof. They test the recipe's to death. I think PBS used to have a tv show about it and my husband and I used to watch it all the time. You can't go wrong with that magazine.

I subscribe to Art Culinare
While its beautiful and really gets your mind thinking, most of the food is beyond the average guests.

I started with their magazines from day one and stopped at #100. I am glad to find others who feel as I do about this periodical.

The recipes assume a lot as far as technique and I have found more than one example of ingredients left out as well as other things.

The picture are awesome and you can get some really great idea from them. For me it $38.00 a year for 4 issues.

IMHO Lucky Peach is the most informative and interesting read out right now.

I am surprised that no one has mentioned Saveur yet.  It is my favorite "mainstream" food magazine by far.  I also loved Food Arts, when I got it but haven't had a subscription for quite a few years now.  Couldn't get a free subscription doing jail food.

I have Saveur on my bookmarks on both my laptop and ipad. Love it.

thanks for the feedback on Art Culinaire. I've never gotten to see an issue but have looked into it....The photography looks amazing, I am partially looking for visual art/plating ideas and inspiration.
