What are the Best Non-US Cooking Magazines

smkit | Jun 29, 2010 03:22 PM

Every now and then I find a foreign (non-US) cooking magazine and try it out. They usually cost a bit more, so I am reluctant to buy them that often, but with the loss of Gourmet last November, I think I would like to replace it with something foreign.

The last magazine I tried out was Jamie Oliver's 'Jamie'. Though I am not entirely won over, I did enjoy it. The page texture, layout, and style were more 'hip' if that matters to people, but I also liked how he had a better focus on kids. It seemed refreshing and current, but it is also hard to get a proper feel just off of one issue.

I also like looking at what products are being featured abroad that I have never heard of. Of course, there are also drawbacks to foreign publications in that some food items are less available here; you might have to convert recipes; and language could be an issue -- but what are the equivalents of Bon Appetit, Gourmet, Food and Wine, and Saveur for the rest of the world?
