Cook Magazine Turns 12
Here's something new dear readers! I have been featuring food and other stuff here and now this is quite different. This time I will be featuring about a magazine, yes it's a MAGAZINE. This blog wouldn't be a MAG if I wouldn't be featuring magazines as well. Okay heading on.
This magazine that we are about to feature here is not just an ordinary Magazine but it is the leading magazine in the metro which is about Food. And it's already been a decade that they have dominated the market as one of the leading magazine that is about food.
Cook Magazine started their food wavering in year 2000. One of their thrust is to recognize the huge difference between restaurant food and home cooked food. It was designed and written for the millions of Filipinos who loves to know things about food and cooking. Included in this magazine are the articles and recipes created and shared by hobbyists and food lovers.
Just recently, Cook Magazine celebrated their 12th year in the business. Attended by different advertisers, PRs, bloggers, guests and a whole lot more of individuals who loves food and are fans of Cook Magazine which was held at F1 Hotel. The management & Staff of COOK Magazine hosted this early holiday bash to thank their advertisers, friends, partners and all those who rallied behind the magazine this year.
They are continuously innovating and conceptualizing the content of the magazine to serve better their readers and to do the appropriate taste of the new generation with regards to food.
In the past, the magazine had been covering artisan foods from meals to snacks beverages, cheeses, condiments, meat and seafood categories, perhaps the biggest bulk of the selections have been sweets-fine candy, artisan chocolates, cookies, brownies and desserts. In reply to the shifting market and consumer needs, the new COOK content looks at the future of food and its role in pop culture. Food Editor Chef Danny De La Cuesta gathers a handful of food visionaries, industry practitioners, celebrity chefs for great food exchange in all the magazine's 2013 issues. In the 88 pages, it will discuss the newest and best products, food recommendations, reviews, how-to's, reference articles, culinary destinations, product recipes or go-to source of consumer information in the dynamic food category. It will also include artisanal and small production consumer items that readers might not have discovered on their own plus information on how to use them to make everyday dining and entertaining easier and more exciting.
Cook will make a lot of editorial on mass-produced brands, food service and food festivals, widening its reach to industry professionals because it promises to be the only consumer publication that will review best brands of foods, restaurants and beverages in every category.
The December issue that will hit stands in the first week of December 2012, features Katrina Ponce Enrile as the cover image- a fashion influencer and a culinary entrepreneur. She describes Cook Magazine as "an institution and a community for so many people that it created a new category-homeccoks-when it launched and has remained the highest-selling cookery title in its entire market life."
The event also took the opportunity to make public the New Look and Conceptual Direction of the Magazine that will be offering consumers an ever more diverse way of accessing its brand, in print through the magazine, and bookazines, online through the website and mobile and face-to-face through our Food Events.
