Who Reads Food & Wine?
Food & Wine is the contemporary magazine for elegant dining and entertaining. Food & Wine is on a mission to find the most exciting places, new culinary experiences, emerging trends and sensations. Food & Wine readers are hungry for more than just the next great meal -- they seek an energetic and stylish take on living well.

- Feature Articles: Feature articles in each issue cover a broad range of topics guaranteed to be of interest to our readers. Reports on new culinary trends, new restaurants, travel destinations with important and exciting culinary experiences, profiles of major chefs, advice about wine and wine pairings, and of course, amazing recipes -- all tested and perfected in the Food & Wine test kitchen.
- Each July, the Food & Wine Best New Chefs are announced -- naming ten up-and-coming rising stars in the culinary world. Past Best New Chefs include notables such as Daniel Boulud, Tom Colicchio, Todd English and Thomas Keller. The October issue focuses on wine, revealing the winners of Food & Wine's American Wine Awards.
The pages of Food & Wine are designed in a contemporary style. Recipes are easy to read and the instructions have been tested so they are complete and easy to follow. Feature stories are accompanied by beautiful, mouth-watering photographs.
Contributors are chosen for their knowledge of and passion for the culinary lifestyle, including luminaries in the restaurant world, such as Jacques Pepin and Jean-Georges Vongerichten, to cookbook authors, expert wine-makers and food artisans.
Comparisons to Other Magazines:
Food & Wine is not just a compilation of recipes, but rather covers the entire range of topics of interest for our sophisticated readers: profiles of chefs (from the luminaries of the restaurant world to the up-and-coming chefs who are the superstars of tomorrow), travel destinations explored through their tastes and flavors, and expert advice about the best buys in wine (from the most worthwhile splurges to great bargains) and wine pairings.
Most of the advertising in Food & Wine is specific to the culinary interests of its readers: including food products and ingredients, kitchen equipment, wine merchants, and destination travel advertisements.
The James Beard Foundation has honored Food & Wine many times over the years, for journalism about the restaurant industry, emerging food trends, and wine coverage. Food & Wine also was the Gold Winner of the 2008 Folio Eddie Award, for the September 2007 anniversary issue.
The Food & Wine Classic in Aspen is America's premier culinary event. Hailed by the New York Times as "the granddaddy of them all", the event features three incomparable days of cooking demonstrations, wine tastings, seminars and panel discussions by world-class talent, such as Jacques Pepin, Bobby Flay, Emeril Lagasse, Mario Batali, and Danny Meyer. Food & Wine is also proud to be a sponsor of Bravo's Top Chef.
Focusing on a central theme in each issue, such as 25 party ideas (number 25: nautical party) or 35 quick and tasty dishes, Food & Wine indulges a broad range of culinary connoisseurs and thirsty enophiles. Expect a number of well-rounded recipes and festive commentary on the theme at hand, but don't expect that Food & Wine will be weighed down by said theme--each issue also contains a home shopping guide (in case you need to know where to purchase a green bamboo tray), restaurant reviews, a Drinks/Wine section, and shorter articles that run from "Win a Date with a Chef" to "The Joy of Slow Cooking." --A.J.

Beautiful to Look at: Recipes More for Advanced Chefs
By G. C.
I like to look at food pics. I think I have some kind of disorder where I just enjoy staring at beautiful meals and documenting them. I take pictures of the food I eat. I have done it so much and talked about meals so much that I have ended up influencing my friends to do the same. Food & Wine has great photos of unusual meals. I am not sure if I will make all of these or any of these. Usually, the meals are very fancy. I would think this magazine is geared more towards really experienced chefs and not novices, in terms of recipes and advice, but it's still pretty for those who are food voyeurs. I think it would be cool if they expanded this magazine's scope and reach to include articles on food related tangents like their upcoming festival schedules, restaurants, cook shows, features on specific chefs, cooking show reviews, etc. But maybe that's not their intent. Anyways, I am still giving this 5 stars because of the mouthwatering photos. I probably won't renew my order for it though because it is not my cup of tea. It was very interesting and well put together though.

Best of what's left
By S. B. Shapiro
I was devastated when Gourmet was suddenly put to bed. It was my favorite magazine of all time. The combination of information, presentation, human interest stories and wit was unparalleled-- in my opinion. With a year and half of my subscription left, they started sending me Bon Apetit as a replacement. Bon Apetit sucks! I can leaf through the whole thing in 10 minutes, not feel the need to linger or stop at any page...it's uninspired and dull. Again, my opinion, of course.
Food and Wine just started coming (I think it was a holiday gift) and it's filled the void somewhat. I'd say it is a solid 4 where Gourmet was a solid 5 and Bon Apetit is a 2.
Food and Wine has a lot of interesting recipes and articles. It's got some foodie interest stories and lots of pretty pictures that make you hungry. I wish their fonts were prettier but the layout is well organized and functional. I notice a trend toward health consciousness, which I like.
I've also tried Saveur and was not that enthused. And the food network magazine is the PEOPLE magazine of food, not for reading articles but just skimming through pics. After careful consideration, I think F&W is the best food mag left on the market.

Purchased subscription on Cyber Monday for $5.00 for my girlfriend who always finds something she likes in every issue. Cannot complain. Just make sure to set a reminder on calendar to cancel subscription or you will be renewed with a new price.
