3.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous November 10, 2005
I've recently been trying to de-clutter my house. As part of that project, I've been going through 20 years of Bon Apetit magazines, culling recipes that I remember fondly and recalling a few food disasters. I've also noticed how the magazine has changed over the years.

Photography is and always has been a strong point for this magazine. I rarely get a new copy without seeing a beautiful picture of something I just have to try making. I've cut out hundreds of dessert recipes - I find pictures of chocolate cakes much more evocative than pictures of steamed vegetables. A large number of the recipes in Bon Apetit come with photos, and I find that helpful in deciding whether I want to try them.

The recipes usually turn out very well. I've made some wonderful desserts, and my wife was stunned (favorably) by some black bean cakes I made for her birthday. The writing is clear and I'm not often left wondering what exactly is meant by the instructions. A few recipes haven't turned out well, and I'm an experienced enough cook to believe that it wasn't my fault, but over 20 years and out of hundreds of recipes, that isn't at all bad. There have been more than a few recipes that simply didn't sound good, but the magazine staff has generally avoided strange food combinations just for the sake of novelty.

My complaint is that the ratio of recipes to other stuff has fallen over the years. Bon Apetit has become more of a lifestyle magazine, and the lifestyle isn't mine. It seems aimed at young and fabulous singles, footloose young couples, and retired couples who don't have young children. After reading some of the party, travel, and buying features I come away with the vague sense that my own kitchen and lifestyle would be found wanting by the editorial staff.

Of the three primary cooking magazines (Gourmet, Bon Appetit and Food and Wine), Bon Appetit is the one about how people cook on a daily basis. There is some travel and restaurant coverage, but it is not the focus of the magazine like it is in Gourmet. There are articles on wine and contemporary recipes combining exotic ingredients, but not to the same extent you find in Food and Wine. Here, the food is the star, and it lives up to its top billing. For people who cook more often than on special occassions, this is the magazine for you. The photography displays the food to advantage and the recipes are consistently well-written and produce delicious results. While you will find complex and elaborate recipes that are fun to make when you have the time, there are also plenty of recipes and menus that you can incorporate into your daily cooking. Bon Appetit may not be as flashy as its peers, but if you're looking for a magazine to cook with, this is the one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Cooking Magazine November 6, 2001
By D
Bon Appetit is such an underrated magazine for people who like to cook.
I am a longtime subscriber, and I have kept all of the past issues. The magazine is always full of both easy and sophisticated recipes. You will really love the November and December issues, with Thanksgiving and Christmas/Hannukah recipes.
The photography, the recipes, the product descriptions, the cookbook reviews, this magazine has it all.
In comparison to its closest rivals, which I perceive to be Gourmet, Cook's Illustrated, and Cooking Light, Bon Appetit is the clear winner. Gourmet is too high end, with a sparse design style. Cook's Illustrated lack the photography that is essential to a cooking magazine. In my view, Cooking Light is both too niche and too low end.
Bon Appetit sets the perfect tone. Don't let the title scare you away.

5.0 out of 5 stars Practical recipes and a fun online community too! December 10, 2002
By debvh
Each issue of Bon Appetit is filled with recipes that make home cooking interesting. Articles on topics related to food, wine, restaurants, and travel provide some light reading, but the emphasis is on recipes ranging from simple ideas for dishes based on store-bought ingredients to elaborate meals entirely from scratch. Most are geared toward those of us who have some cooking experience but also have a life outside the kitchen, and allow you to achieve surprisingly good results with relatively little effort. The recipes are seasonal and often trendy, but not weird; ingredients can usually be found in well-stocked supermarkets. One of the best features isn't even in the magazine - it's the way all the recipes are available for review on the Epicurious web site. If you like Amazon reader reviews, you will love Epicurious recipe reviews, which let you reap the benefit of a whole community's experience with each recipe. Subscribing to Bon Appetit gives you the best of both worlds - a magazine you can read at your leisure, wherever you like, and a community of cooks with whom to share ideas if you wish.

4.0 out of 5 stars I love to go from page to page....... March 22, 2005
I've recently started reading my Bon Appetit from cover to cover just because everything is so good (pictures, recipes, articles, etc...). Having three small busy children, my time is limited for meals during the week and my favorite section of this book is "Fast Easy Fresh". I can always find a few recipes that are easy to make yet edible in the eyes of my children. My second favorite section is "Readers' Timesaving Recipes". These readers seem to share the same type of lifestyle as me (limited kitchen time) and they submit very yummy, quick recipes that I can whip up in no time.

My husband and I believe that dinnertime as a family is so important to the well-being of our children that making meals that require endless preparation and cooking just isn't a priority for us.

I also love to entertain and have dinner parties so the new column that begins in the April 2005 issue entitled "Party Improv" is a great addition. I like that they give big, delicious ideas with little effort... including suggestions for table settings, cocktail concoctions, music, wine and a complete menu for your party!!! They thought of it all!

I highly suggest getting your subscription today so you don't miss out on any future issues!

I enjoy the articles in the magazine. There alot of cutting edge information and recipes in this magazine. Some of them however, may be a little much for me to try in the kitchen.
