4The best of the bunch
By Ryan Martin
Hooray for food porn! Bon Appetit is stuffed with tons of great glossy photos of attractive dishes... a foodie's dream come true!

I've had a subscription to Bon Appetit for about 4 years now, and it is my favorite of all the cooking magazines out there. It is not too high-end or snobby and for the most part you will be able to find the recipe ingredients at your local supermarket. The recipes are generally not too complicated so an amature cook can create a classy meal to impress guests, or just try new things in the kitchen for fun.

My one complaint would be it seems that the issues are beginning to contain slightly fewer recipes than before and it sometimes feels like their target audience is more of a priveledged high-class lifestyle than an everyday home cook.

That said, considering all of the competitors, I think Bon Appetit is the middle ground and I would recommend it to all aspiring home cooks.
