Foodie magazines aren’t that common in the UK but there’s 2 that I subscribe to.
BBC Good Food is the classic foodie mag in the UK and is a good read although IMHO there’s a little too much emphasis on recipes (strange for a food mag!).
delicious. is my favourite. A nice blend of articles and recipes. Maybe a little too self congratulatory in places if I was being extra critical.
As for food shows there are loads to choose from. I won’t go on about Farmers Markets just yet, that’s for a later post, but I will mention one forthcoming show.
The BBC Good Food Show 2006 is always worth a visit and I’ll be there on Wednesday 22nd November 2006. Great show to see lots of different food and drink related suppliers and, if you’re lucky enough to have a designated driver, a great place to drink lots of free samples of booze. If it wasn’t a 4 hours drive from my house it’d perfect. Might see you there, post a comment if you’re going.
