So I thought I'd give you an overview of what's in the food mags I read - and what might be worth checking out yourself. Most of the magazines this month quite predictably offer some Easter fare, but I'm loving that many magazines are focusing on seasonal ingredients..
Australian Good Taste
Well it's the CHOCOLATE issue. Need I say more? I love their photography, it's so lickable isn't it?
The recipe on my list from this issue is Salmon and Dill pie. Looks so comforting doesn't it?
This issue is a standout I must say and really hones in on the family on a budget.
My only criticism would be the overuse of pre-packaged sauces and pastes in the recipes. My pick is the impossible lime and coconut pie (and I think I may even roadtest it this week here what do you think?)
Australian Good Food
I love this magazine and though it is littered with celebrity chefs, the recipes are achievable.
The crazy Spaniard Miguel Maestre shares some Easter seafood recipes - and I'm definitely going to try some out - the best seafood I've ever eaten was in Spain and he has a very simple and flavoursome approach to food. There's also a great Italian Easter recipe feature by Giovanni Pilu.
The best way to describe Delicious for me anyways, is it's aimed at those who entertain, and I think either kids who have flown the coop or DINK couples. It's not family-centric in my view. It does have some great recipes in it from time to time though that's got 'cross-over' appeal - but it's a bit hit and miss.
This issue the recipe that grabs my eye is the gluten free hot-smoked trout, pea and lemon risotto:
Masterchef Magazine (Issue 10)
This issue marks one year of Masterchef Magazine - but like the Delicious Magazine, not many of the recipes would make it on my weekly meal plan. A lot of it is restaurant-style food and whilst I love that kind of food it's not my every day.
What has caught my eye though was the Turkish Pide editorial and recipes. Great recipe to feed a family or serve a crowd at Easter:
And lastly but not leastly, Super Food Ideas
What I love about this publication is that it's jam-packed with useful things.
I love the guide on where to put what in your fridge and all round fridge hygiene guide..
And being a big fan of meatballs, their meatball feature this month I think will appeal to many...
So do you have any comments on these issues? Do you have them? Do you subscribe to many magazines or do you buy them at the supermarket/newsagent - where else?
