At this time of year, I always look for a special interest publication from Better Homes and Gardens -- "appetizers - your holiday entertaining made simple." I've picked it up on the newstand every year for the last 15 or so... always has some special ideas that are new to me.

Art culinaire

Published quarterly, it always has the cutting edge of cuisine, and is always the leader of the trends.

Not the best choice for the "at home" cook, but from a professional standpoint, it can not be beat. The pictures are inspiration enough!

We buy "La Cucina Italiana" every month. We would have liked to subscribe to them, but the postmen just leave oversized items that don't fit in individual boxes out in the open for anyone to grab in the front lobby, so we are afraid we would never see our delivered magazine unless we will wait for them on the day of delivery in front of the mail box...

It is a wonderful cooking magazine chockful of mouthwatering authentic Italian recipes along with good articles, beautiful pictures too. They may make an English version (I have an impression I saw them while I was working at Borders several years back), but Seven, as you are pretty good in Italian, you may be able to read the original version if you have a way to order them.

It looks like this

And this is their website (they have pages in English too)

Currently BonAppetit and Taste of Home. After 10 years, I'm not renewing my BonAppetit for the same reasons I have read above. I used to LOVE that mag but now flip through the mostly glossy ads and find nothing I want to cook. Taste of home was kind of "off" this Oct/Nov issue IMO . . . really strange stuff! I really enjoy the Paula Deen and Penzy's One mag and will probably order them.

I currently subscribe to...

Fine Cooking (My favorite!)
Cooks Illustrated (Great experimenting)
Kitchen and Cook (Great all around, but kinda thin...)

I recently let my Eating Well subscription lapse, as the dishes started becomeing over-simplified, and the "health" articles started becoming a bit too earthy crunchy for me.

Bon Appetite & Gourmet I don't even consider to be magazines. They are more like expenisve books of advertisements. Those two must make a fortune between adverts and cover price! I usually pick up copies of other magazines too if something looks interesting. Scanning the mag-racks at Barnes & Noble is a sickness I have whenever I'm near one.

Cooks Illustrated has another publication almost identical but with big color photos and almost all homestyle dishes. Someone here mentioned it but I'm too lazy to search for it's name. I was going to subscribe to that one too, but I lost the card. No biggie, as I get enough junk in the mail as is... EDIT: Cook's Country

Oh, I'm also the type that tears mine to pieces. I read it once, then go back through and tear out everything worth saving. Otherwise I would have magazines out the whazoo (I get about 10 in every month for various hobbies). I keep multiple folders for each subject (cooking, flying, hiking, etc.).
