I used to love this magazine but the latest 'update' is such a disappointment. Fewer recipes, more reviews of things I'm not interested in, features on chefs I don't care about, etc, etc. It's clearly shifting from a magazine with great recipes to a magazine that talks about food in general. I'm not sure who was in the focus group when they starting planning this change but it doesn't feel like it was particularly representative of GF readers. I miss the recipes. I'm not sure I'll renew my… Read Full Review

The latest "New look" magazine is a great disappointment. The recipes, restaurants and virtually everything else are geared totally to the south of England! I live in West Yorkshire and the ingredients are generally difficult to find ( if I wanted to cook these ridiculous recipes anyway). I have subscribed to this magazine for years but I think you have lost sight of the fact that there is life (and wonderful cooking) outside of the southeast. I do not think I will renew my subscription if this… Read Full Review

Ordered this as a fathers day present. They took a twelve month subscription out in June - I have been chasing delivery of the magazine - they say it will be dispatched 15 August!! Buyer beware 8 weeks before you get your first magazine - naughty!! I had wanted it for the school holidays, for my husband to cook stuff with the kids... by the time its delivered they will be back to school!! Content will let you know if I ever receive it!!… Read Full Review

I have had Good Food over a number of years and have been very pleased with the product. I often give it a miss for about 3 years to await fresh input. I have this year renewed, starting with the May issue. I am very disappointed with it, it appears to be mainly concerned with diets and healthy foods and directed at the female reader. Out of the last 3 issues, I have found only 2 items which were of interest. One was how to prepare a crab which was very interesting, as for the rest I found… Read Full Review

It's Good Food's Birthday - celebrating 25 years of the magazine, and as a consequence, everything in it this month has the number 25 at its heart. There are 25 new recipes, 25 game-changers that have shaken up the way we cook in the last 25 years, James Martin's 25 years in food, 25 top gadgets and a look back at the food landscape over the past quarter of a century. However, all of this fades into insignificance against the new fresh-look magazine with new features, interviews and trends… Read Full Review

As a self-confessed food buff, I often read through national magazines trying to find more tips on food and recipes. I feel the BBC have done a great job here – and give a fairly balanced view of what it means to ‘eat healthy’… Read Full Review

I subscribed to this magazine for a year and was sadly disappointed. Most of the recipes I tried in here were either mediocre or inedible. There's an odd emphasis on using Dijon mustard as a flavouring. And some of the same recipes are repeated.
However, a handful of recipes by guest cooks are very good. There are also some fun articles on food culture, useful products and restaurants.
Conclusion: visually scintillating but lacking in substance.

I have subscribed to BBC Good Food Magazine since 1993 but have recently ended my subscription in 2008. Unfortunately for me the magazine has become too 'trendy' and has moved too far away from proper home cooking. Recipes now call for ingredients to be 'thrown' or 'splashed' in (what's wrong with using plain English) and invariably involve using something that is ready-made such as sauces or bagged ready prepared veg. The emphasis now seems very much on saving time which comes at the price… Read Full Review

Good Food is an excellent monthly magazine, which not only gives you lots of great recipes, but also reviews produce of the month, whats going on in the food world, new foods, new chefs and much much more. I cannot wait until the start of a new month to get the next magazine. Also cover special diet needs and has a great classified section. Definitely worth buying every month… Read Full Review
