Scanning the magazine shelves at your local bookstore, you’ve probably marveled at the recent explosion of culinary magazines. It seems there’s a magazine for every need and ingredient.
In one way this sudden availability of something on everything is an asset to the creative cook. In another way it can all be overwhelming – which magazine, out of so many, is worth buying?
Given the average price of $6.95 each, four or five of these publications in your shopping cart can quickly equal the cost of a nice bottle of wine. So which one is the right one?
If you are a cheese lover (and who isn’t), consider taking home a copy of Culture Cheese Magazine. Published quarterly, it offers outstanding articles on the many topics surrounding cheese – cuisine, production, history, sources, wine and beer matches and thoughtful interviews with the leading individuals in the world of cheese.
The just-released winter issue detailed everything from how Henry Ford used cheese at his hosted roadside picnics to help sell his Model-T cars to an in-depth analysis of Australia’s amazing but often overlooked cheeses. Every page is filled with information that helps the reader become a true connoisseur of all things fromage.
Each copy of Culture is a feast for both the mind and the eye with insightful stories and stunningly beautiful full color photographs. With Christmas coming, it makes a great holiday gift - one to be enjoyed (and treasured) all year long...just like fine cheese!
