    Lucky Peach fo sho.
    I have had subscriptions to Bon Apetit, Saveur, and Food & Wine. I haven't renewed any of them and am on my last issue of all 3. I find the majority of each mag's content to be nothing but advertisements. The only people that I have personally known to grace the inside of any magazine were fortunate enough to have pricey PR people. I'm not going to miss the Bobby Flay Fage yogurt ads at all.
    I remember when Saveur was a much better magazine. It's so lame now, and I can't put my finger on it. Maybe it's James Oseland.........
    .....more flash than function. It doesn't have heart anymore.
    I haven't seen a FoodArts for a long time until recently and was disappointed that after all this time it is (still) filled with at least 3/4 ads instead of content. I guess that's why it's free.

    I used to really enjoy Cook's Illustrated a long time ago. But after so many years in this industry, I think I outgrew it a long time ago. They have great standard recipes and such, but nothing innovative. Christopher Kimball annoys the crap out of me anyway...............
    .....somewhere a barbershop quartet is missing a member.

    I live in the South and there is a pretty decent mag coming out of Charleston, SC called The Local Palate. It does a great job of featuring different regions of the Southeast. Great production value, excellent photos and good food. It's nice to see something like this in my area.

    I have gone paperless and don't subscribe to any of them, but might reconsider after reading through this thread. Oh, and I just saw on my bank statement that I have an online subscription to the Cook's Illustrated site, I didn't even remember...

    Btw, I remember when I was in Europe and used to buy the American versions of a couple magazines. They were expensive just as it is more expensive to buy Euro versions in the US. Vanity Fair is one that I remember, and I was always impressed by how thin it was and how few adds were in it. It was nice. Then when I returned to the US and picked up the same version here, it was PACKED with adds that made it so thick that I stopped buying it. I would easily pay a premium to subscribe to no-ad versions if they ever did that.

    I should also give some love to Cook's Illustrated. I had a subscription, but didn't renew it two years ago, because it seemed a bit too dated. Come to think of it, Saveur took its spot.

    Take a look around at:

    cooks illustrated is okay.

    the best thing to happen to that company is Yvonne Ruperti. i think she is so cute, and hot.

    i like my CI subscription go as well. the mag is very repetitious.
