I was worried I wouldn't love this magazine because I thought it might be a little on the snooty side-- I was wrong! The dishes may be shmancy sometimes but they maintain a down-to-earth feel which I love so much. I'm always learning about some new ingredient I want to try!
I love the variety of recipes and the articles are interesting. I love trying new foods and cuisine from around the world, and this is a great way to do it. Their website is great too; it helped me learn how to care for and use my cast iron pan. I definitely recommend Bon Appetit for adventurous cooks.
The magazine is okay, but impractical for me. A lot of the recipes are expensive to make or take up a lot of time. I received this magazine for a year and never once made a recipe in it because of the expense, mainly. Most of the recipes do sound good but this magazine is just not made for a person without a lot of time or money.
First, my subscription was a slip of the mouse and I tried to cancel the subscription immediately...unsuccessfully. Second, while I'm sort of a "foodie" this magazine is way, way too "hoity-toity" and have gotten nothing useful from it in the 3 issues I've received.
