This is the time of year many of us take stock of the things in our lives and make some decisions about what should stay and what should go. What better time to slough off your old, tired magazine subscriptions and usher in some that are shiny and new? The Hot Dish got a peek at a beautiful magazine that just made its debut this month from Stampington and Company, which publishes such mags as Where Women Create and Somerset Studio. Their latest addition is called Where Women Cook, a quarterly magazine dedicated to women "who are passionate about all things food."
The premiere issue is inspirational--artfully composed and beautifully rendered, with vibrant essays by each of the women featured in its pages. It highlights Ree Drummond (better known to many as The Pioneer Woman) on the cover, but the issue includes profiles of many women who have created livelihoods, refuges, and bastions of creativity in their kitchens. The design of the unique spaces they have created combines with the tales and photos of the food to make an altogether delicious reading experience.
Each issue costs $14.99, or $59.99 for a year's subscription. The price seems high until you realize that each issue is a work of art and contains enough celebration and inspiration to last a whole season. Place orders for individual issues or subscriptions on itswebsite. So long, Fitness and Shape. Hello, Where Women Cook.
