Does anyone else subscribe to/purchase Saveur magazine? What do you think of the redesign that has happened in the latest issue? I just got it yesterday so haven't thoroughly looked it over, but my first reaction was blechhh! I love that magazine partly because of the (old) design. I love the articles and the pictures and the little sidebars and the extra info in the back about techniques or where to buy ingredients, etc. I always feel like I've been somewhere after I finish reading one of their stories, like the one in the March issue about the old family home in very Southern Switzerland near the Italian border, with that recipe that paired a fried egg with fresh asparagus....mmmmm! Seems to me like they messed with a good thing and the change wasn't an improvement, at least visually. I don't think the quality of the content has changed, but it just might not be as fun to read . What other publications do DR'ers like to check out? (Food related, of course!)
I'm generally highly skeptical of any entity that proclaims itself 'best in world' at anything but this magazine launched in the US last year and does have some good photography. http://www.four-magazine.com Fair bit of pretentiousness (they talk about "targeting readers in the A/B bracket" who "enjoy a luxury lifestyle") as well as some interesting content. One of the major sections focuses on "Chefs" with maybe a couple hundred listed from around the world. For DC, no Ruta, Trabocchi, Wiedmaier, or Ziebold. No Cooper, Furstenberg or even O'Connell. But, Andres is in there. He may be the only one. They have an adjudicated "Rising Stars" foursome for each continent. Here in North America, no mention of Silverman or Friedman. Not sure if I have any use for this yet. An initial skim was both a tad interesting and pretty annoying.
