Beautiful pictures of beautiful food. This magazine has a little more on the travel side than its competitors, but without taking away from the food aspect.  There is a regular features where readers can request a recipe for a favourite dish from a favourite restaurant.  The magazine is a good balance between practical, and entertaining – that is, it’s equally pleasurable to be read with a hot chocolate snuggled under a rug, or propped up in your kitchen to help you with a course or two for your next dinner party.  A great coffee table magazine too.

This monthly magazine is one of FoodieChat’s favourites.  There are numerous recipes which not only look good due to the styling, but also are easy to prepare and offer a good variety. The travel features provide a run down on great places to eat and shop around the place, and delicious. has a good basket of well known chefs which write regular articles and recipes. My favourites include Nigella Lawson, Jamie Oliver, Bill Granger to name a few.

At only $6.50 an issue it is a great value read – you will also be guaranteed to get good use of the recipes, whether it be “Tuesday night cooking” (weeknights), or an internationally themed dinner party.
