As a former magazine editor, I'm addicted to magazines. It's a hard habit to break. I particularly enjoy food magazines and one of my favourites has to be jamie because the team does such a great job of combining fantastic recipes and images but also putting a whole travel spin into each issue. The styling is also stunning - I can almost smell the dishes. Take for example this Tomato Carpaccio above- look at the colours, the simplicity of the shot, the minimal propping. So inspirational.
In the same September issue was a story on Vintage Sardines photographed by David Loftus. I loved the shot above of all the cans and their designs.
Basic Roast Chicken - again perfectly styled to my taste. Those chunks of sea salt on top and the vintage board- we know it has been carefully planned but it feels so natural.
Above: Lamb Shoulder with Coco De Paimpol Beans, Lemon Confit and Olives - also photographed by Dan Jones and styled by Georgie Socratous.
This issue has a French theme and one of the things I do want to try is making a Croquembouche- Jamie tells readers that anyone can make one!! It's tempting to try and would certainly make a serious statement piece for my next gathering. There's also a food guide to Paris and tips for cooking with kids. Been a fast fan of this magazine every since it launched.
What about you? Do you read it?
