Just saw this today - the premier issue - with a big pic of Mario Batali. It advocates a 'healthy new you'. Any comments?

I bought this on a whim last week and it reminded me of something I would have put together for a high school journalism class. The articles all seemed to be repeats from what you've read in other publications and nothing seemed original. I just felt the photography, writing, etc., was all very amateurish. I definitely won't be purchasing it again.

Hi,

"The Food Magazine" has a cover seemingly developed for humor with feature articles that smack of oxymoronic op-ed pieces.

A fat chef, an NFL steakhouse, Ina and pastry. Realy healthy! I wonder if Mario recognizes that vegetable in front of him?

Yikes, just a look at the website is enough to tell me I'll never buy. They hired this slimy Seth guy? And now I'd have to pay to see him gloat with his shiny forehead next to some (wannabe) chef "reality" guy with exploding hair a 5th grader would be ashamed to sport?

No thanks.

Looks worse than the food network, which is going down the road to absolute mediocrity at astounding speed itself.

Thanks for the warning, won't have to waste my time with this rag in the book store.

As was mentioned, even the website seems to just re-heat long stale leftovers published long ago everywhere else.

Astounding they got funding, now let's just hope they'll disappear just as quickly. There are too many mediocre food magazines out there already.

I'd say this is easily THE WORST food magazine I've ever seen.

My favourite part is the letter from the publisher where one of the chicks pictured in sexy garb rhapsodizes over finding a parking place when out hopping for the "veggies" on the cover.
