Customer Reviews:

  • Food for thought, wine to drink
    Has your food become blase? Taste buds bored? Try Food and Wine magazine for a taste wake-up! You've tried world music? Now add world food! Thai, Argentine, California Valley. New tastes! New thrills!

    June's issue features grilling recipes, including gourmet pizza-- mind you, not the same ol' pepperoni and cheese--as well as Thai grilling. One of the most widely ranging flavors in one dish is Thai food.

    Essential Thai ingredients include cilantro, coconut milk, dried chiles, dried shrimp, and fish sauce. Listen to these Thai favorite dishes: Spicy Green Papaya Salad, Warm Flank Steak Salad with Mint and Cilantro, Sweet Sticky Rice with Mangoes and Sesame Seeds, Grilled Quick-Brined Jumbo Shrimp, Salt-Crusted Tilapia with Lemongrass, and Mango Alexander.

    Another grilling subset is the pairing of oaky wines with smoky foods, traditionally served with reds. But picture this: Chardonnay with Grilled Scallops and Honeydew-Salsa, Sauvignon Blanc with Grilled Gruyere-and-Zucchini Sandwiches, or Pinot Noir with Chopped Lamb Steak with Garlicky Spinach (I pass on lamb).

    Let's walk through the magazine for a camera's eye view of content:
    1. Menus: Seven warm-weather menus from recipes in this issue--an excellent idea!
    2. News and notes: Even begins with a recipe for Pasta with Cheese and Pepper (which looks divine)
    3. Since this issue focuses on outdoor grilling, there is a page of outdoor grills to ponder
    4. Cocktail chic with several unusual recipes
    5. Kitchen in the garden (here's where I'm beginning to protest not being rich)
    6. Designers to watch now (money)
    7. How to sniff out corked wine (and bad)
    8. 20 Smart tips for everyday grilling (very practical and exotic)
    9. A Top Chef's Weight-Loss Secrets (one of her recipes is Grilled Tofu with Asparagus and Nori Vinaigrette)--I love tofu and seaweed, so this will be a winner
    10. The ultimate sausage guide with recipes for five condiments
    11. Best 5-minute dressings along with salad recipes to use with them, for example Mixed Grilled Vegetables with Creamy Feta Vinaigrette
    12. Summer's best wines--10 crisp, light whites
    13. A major article on gaucho grilling in Argentina, including Grilled Peaches and Plums with Mascarpone, Mini Corn Cakes with Seared Salmon
    14. Then the other grilling sections with which I began the review.

    Of course, swaddling all the articles are a multitude of ads, but they make the magazine possible. I have no complaint there.

    I confess that I haven't tried any recipes yet--but look forward to doing so next week when school ends for another year.

    Having a grilling issue for June (that hits the stands in May) is very timely for use the rest of the summer. It is so lovely to take your ingredients to the outdoors kitchen, fire up a grill, swirl some cocktails, grill, pop the cork on a bottle or two, and dine to the best of exotic foods from around the world right there in your own little paradise. Food and Wine made this fiesta possible! Along with my imagination! ...more info
  • First Rate
    This is the perfect magazine for those who like to cook and LOVE wine. Most of the recipes do not call for advanced cuisine knowledge. Many are designed for the fast-paced lifestyle of the USA.

    The wine segments are very current and accurate. I live within 2 hours drive of Champagne, Mosel, Rhine, and Alsace wine regions. There have been many articles focusing on these areas and I know from experience that the reporting is first class and highly reliable.

    Cheers...more info

  • Okay Magazine... but way too many advertisements!
    The accounts in Food & Wine are fun to read, and I've gotten many great recipes from the magazine. However, I do have one major qualm with it: the advertisement to recipe ratio, is aggravating. When I get a cooking magazine, I expect recipes, not ads galore. Besides that, it is a fine magazine, but I would recommend something like Cooks Country (my favorite-the recipes are delicious, the tips helpful, the accounts of how the recipes came to be entertaining, and the format both attractive and easy to follow) instead. Taste of Home is also a good choice....more info
  • Good Mag
    I really enjoy this magazine. It has given me lots of ideas for how I cook at home. The recipies are great as are the wine recomendations. Some of it can be a bit trendy, but knowing the trends can be helpful....more info
  • a must for the gourmet
    a friend got me subscription to food and wine for my birthday last year, and i look forward to it every month. it's great because it's set up for a variety of different kinds of readers. recipies are easy to find, and organized into several different categories, great if a reader wants to use the magazine as a cookbook. food and wine also has great bargain & collectable wine tips, and fun interviews with chefs, from famous to obscure. if you're into regional cuisine, food and wine covers more than the typical napa valley/provence circuit....more info
  • A Cut Above
    After comparing all the main Food magazines on the newsstands over the past year it became clear to me that Food & Wine is a cut above the competition. Obviously this is a personal criteria but I was impressed with how modern and interesting F&W is, the design is more stylish and the columns in the beginning are diverse and very readable. Just got the feeling I wasn't reading my parents' cooking magazine, and company seemed to love it sitting on my coffee table....more info
  • Great reading, great eating
    I'll admit, the first thing I do when I open a cooking magazine is flip through the recipe index to see which appetizers, entrees , or desserts I want to try in the coming weeks. With Food & Wine, there are always several dishes that sound scrumptious and are often easy to prepare (especially with their new quick meals feature). But unlike other food magazines, this one has articles that are just as delicious to savor. From descriptions of breakfast at a film shoot in Trinidad & Tobago to a writer's loving reminiscences of his ancient, creaky stove, each issue leaves an aftertaste that will make you hungry for more....more info
  • Timing
    Why request a review from me when I haven't yet recieved the publication? It clearly states the subscription won't begin for six to eight weeks, yet a product review is requested after three weeks....more info
