Thread: any food magazines on your regular read list?

    Lucky Peach, Saveur, and Fine Cooking. Lucky Peach is a fun read but not much for recipes I would use.

    I get mine from Indigo/Chapters here in Toronto. I have every issue except #1 can't find it anywhere(for retail price that is).

    When I can find a copy, Fire & Knives is a great quarterly from the UK. The writing is excellent, also really like Lucky Peach

    I always thought Cooks Illustrated was clearly better than Fine Cooking, and certainly less beholden to vendors.....but I'm thinking about letting my subscription lapse (first time since 1998).

    One I would suggest passing up is Mix. It started out good but the last year or so have really sucked. Talk about beholding to way too much money advertisers. My sub will end as soon as it runs out.

    I get almost all of the cooking magazines (good or bad) as I write it off as a business expense. And I am with you Z that I used to like Cook's Illustrated more, but it just seems so dated now as it appeals to an older population (sort of like Consumer Reports). Plus, I just found the repetition of things a little annoying, and the equipment reviews are really tanking now that the variety of products has increased 1000% and they change so quickly. Cooks Illustrated simply can't keep up withe velocity and quantity of new products, so their equipment reviews are becoming less relevant every year -- and for me they are almost completely worthless.

    With that said, Cook's Illustrated has forever changed the way I prepare broccoli, cauliflower, and pork tinga. And I will be using it again next week as I bake a rhubarb pie. I enjoy their approach when tackling basic food preparation.

    On the other hand, I find the newer Fine Cooking format from 2009 better IMO. A lot of people didn't like it as it eliminated some traditional sections and pull outs and -- gasp -- the fonts changed. I like their cooking without recipes section where they set out the basic steps with the logic behind them and a bunch of ways you can adjust ingredients to make variations. It gets me thinking out of the box sometimes.

    Btw, has anyone ever tried Waitrose Food Illustrated? I bought one a couple of years ago and I vaguely remember that I liked it -- but I could be wrong.

    Oh man, I forgot that I used to subscribe to Fire & Knives. I don't think they ever sent a renewal notice, so I only got it for one year.
