Help Me Decide Which Food Magazines Would Be Best to Subscribe To!

Good Questions

Q: As much as I love blogs, especially this one, I still enjoy getting a print magazine every month. I'm interested in subscribing to one with a focus on food and cooking, but I'm a little overwhelmed at the number of options. It can be difficult to tell what kinds of readership and recipes are the focus simply from various magazines' websites. I was wondering if you had any suggestions or even a rundown of what each publication generally has to offer?

Editor: Alison, I want to let the readers weigh in on how they perceive the differences between food magazines. But let me put in my own plug for Alimentum, which is a more literary journal featuring stories, essays, and poems on the topic of food. Also, Lucky Peach, which has been a fun ride so far. Check out this post on 10 terrific quarterly food journals for a good introduction.

Readers, how do you decide which food magazines to subscribe to?
