Sure, it doesn’t take much for me to be seduced by something lovely in printed form. But in my defence it’s rather rare that the lovely magazine in question will relate to one of my other great loves … food.
Wandering into the newsagents on a lazy Saturday afternoon some time ago I happened upon Issue 4 of the Nude Food Magazine. There’s something rather lovely about the design of the cover don’t you think? Combined with the lovely matte paper which the magazine is constructed from (which feels lovely to the fingertips), the gorgeous illustrations, and the seriously yumbo recipes like ‘Ricotta Hotcakes & Toffee Poached Pears’, ‘Coconut Honey Banana Bread’, and ‘Burnt Orange Caramel Flan’ … well, it’s safe to say that it didn’t take me long to purchase this delight.
I mean it’s like the creators of this magazine figured out a way to get into my mind and determine precisely how I like my magazines to look and feel, and what my most favourite sweet things to eat are … hmmm, that’s kind of scary when I think about it … Inception anyone?
Being a Queensland born and bred magazine, it’s appropriate that this issue also featured a lovely ‘Foodie’s Guide to Brisbane’ … even as a local I found new places to try. It’s rare to find a nicely put together magazine for under $4, and it’s rarer still that you’ll find one at no cost … You can download Issues 1, 2 and 3 of the magazine for free on their website, which is awesome and very generous I think.
Anyway, Issue 5 of Nude Food Magazine is out today and I’m really hoping that my sweet tooth will once more be well catered for … perhaps you share a love of magazines / food / nice paper / locally produced printed material too?
If so, maybe I’ll see you at the newsagents … just don’t buy MY copy, my sweet tooth has a really, really nasty side …
