Daily bite: National Geographic to launch new food magazine

National Geographic is about to launch a brand new 164-page glossy magazine dedicated entirely to food

National Geographic Food

According to a press release issued by the UK publisher, APL media, earlier this month, National Geographic Food is about “our relationship with food and the culinary stories that need to be told…combining practical recipes, insightful reports and you-can-almost-taste-it-photography.”

Topics and sections covered in the first issue will include:

  • Fish files: sustainable seasonal fish and how to prepare it
  • Breaking bread: dining with families and experiencing cuisines around the world
  • Five ways with Harissa
  • The protein debate: can you get all the protein you need without eating meat?
  • Food & You: how readers changed their diet to eliminate eczema
  • Recipe: how to make pho. A failsafe way to cook this Vietnamese staple at home.
  • Meet the pioneers: Ben Chapman fuses authentic Thai dishes with UK ingredients.

Although the print version will be available on UK newsstands only, Canadian readers can get a taste of the action on National Geographic Food’s new website, Natgeofood.co.uk and follow the mag on its social media channels using the handle @NatGeoFoodUK.

Exactly how much of the magazine’s content will be reproduced online is not clear, but if their sister publication, National Geographic Traveller UK, is anything to go by, web-based readers can expect a beautiful online platform with plenty of food for thought, including compelling stories that explore food culture around the world, in-depth research and world-class photography.

The first issue of National Geographic Food will be released in the UK on November 30th, 2017.
