i love the new food network magazine. it has great recipes, shares insights to the chefs and shows, and is a plethora of information.
but what seals the magazine for me is the inclusion and design of the recipe index in the front of the magazine. for 2+ pages in the beginning of the magazine is a list of all the recipes they have in the magazine with the title and photo. as food network chefs often say – you eat with your eyes then your mouth.
even though i have post-it recipes i would like to try in the magazine, the recipe index can easily remind me what dishes i would like to try, as well as help me mix and match which dishes to make together! for the designer and the food experimenter in me, it is awesome! i know … i’m such a food network junkie.
