New food magazine app comes with no recipes but lots of stories.
AWARD-winning blog Honest Cooking has released a new iPad app and culinary magazine void of recipes but heavy on food stories from around the world.
The first issue of Honest Cooking Magazine, released early this month, includes features that range from how French cuisine was saved through the concept of “bistronomy”, a profile of Chicago chef Grant Achatz, “The Storyteller” and a marathon, 12-hour dim sum experience in New York.
Or, in their own words, it’s a food magazine the “Honest Cooking staff always wanted to read themselves”.
Meanwhile, a recently launched food magazine out of Sweden has enjoyed near instant success at a time when hard copy publications are folding and turning the proverbial page by going digital.
After having scarcely published their second issue, Fool Magazine was named the world’s best food magazine by the Gourmand World Cookbook Awards.
Run by husband-and-wife team Per Anders and Lotta Jorgensen, stories and photos are inspired from fashion, design and culture, they say.
The latest issue, released last November, included stories about French chef Michel Bras, a Q&A with food writer and activist Michael Pollan, as well as a column on “food, sex and rock ’n’ roll” by influential food writer and creative director of Cook it Raw, Andrea Petrini.
