This review is from: Food Network Magazine (1-year) (Magazine)
This magazine is packaged very well for the casual reader. I would term it more as a Food Network Magazine than a recipe digest as some people might expect it to be. Yes, there are some recipes but its more about cooking tools (pretty expensive ones at that), fancy gear, insight into Food Network chefs, book promotions and then a few recipes.
Don't take me wrong, I like it but it is definitely not for the recipes it packs.
And for the rare vegetarian chef/cooking enthusiast out there, not your kind of book.

I was thinking about maybe subscribing with the discount - I received a promotional offer a few weeks ago. I rejected it then because I stopped watching the food Network religiously when it went to entertainment only food TV. I watch it every now and then for grins! The magazine promised more of the same.

I would definitely agree to that. It has an entertainment feel to it. Its a casual read but not really a food magazine, the way people expect it to be.

That is not necessarily a bad thing - look at Gourmet magazine, no longer in production. It's easy to find recipes for free online - a magazine that blends entertainment and food could just be worthwhile. I intend to try it. Thanks for the review, very candid.

Thanks for the comment. Two interesting points for you. The first one is that Gourmet magazine was about a lot of things beyond the recipes. The Food Network magazine is about cooks and their tools. I would think there is a difference. Secondly, the most recent issue of the Food Network Magazine (Nov 2009 issue) definitely seems to correct the problem by throwing in lot more recipes than older issues. I hope this is a permanent affair and not just a holiday thing.
That said, I actually do enjoy perusing through the magazine. Just wanted to put in a review to let people know what to expect.
