National Geographic Food

the 164-page magazine will champion sustainability, celebrate local culture and people

Food for thought, food for living. Food for here, now and beyond…

National Geographic has today unveiled a brand new magazine dedicated to celebrating every facet of food. National Geographic Food (UK) will bring to life the great storytelling ethos of the National Geographic brand in the food arena, combining practical recipes, insightful reports and you-can-almost-taste-it-photography.

Whether it’s the truth behind a trend, a secret history unveiled, a favourite recipe to covet or the bumpy journey from farm to fork, the 164-page magazine will champion sustainability, celebrate local culture and people, and present it all with glorious photography and superb storytelling.

Each month, National Geographic Food will share the brand values of National Geographic, through compelling narratives. The magazine will bring with it thought, insight and practical hands-on things to do. It will meet the people and try the recipes, uncover the food and its provenance, while discovering more about the science behind what we eat and how its prepared or cooked.

The first issue launches on the 30 November and will contain thought-provoking features and easy-to-follow recipes by world-renowned contributors. Don’t miss:

• Breaking bread: dining with families and experiencing cuisines around the world
• Five ways with… Harissa: Sabrina Ghayour looks at five interesting ways to use Harissa

• Meet the pioneers: a chef who’s pioneering the food scene. This month, Ben Chapman on fusing authentic Thai dishes with UK ingredients.

Maria Pieri, launch editor and editorial director, National Geographic Food, said: “Each and every one of us has our own unique tastes and we aim to explore the in-depth relationship we have with food. From origin to delivery, junk food to gourmet, food trends to trending food and wellness to wastage, we’ll aim to debunk the myths and go behind the scenes, talking to producers, suppliers, farmers, chefs, restaurateurs, nutritionists… and family cooks, too.”

National Geographic Food will explore real food, real recipes made at home by real people. As part of the first issue, the magazine will feature kitchen hacks from their readers and industry experts and invite foodies, gourmands and home chefs to share their favourite kitchen secrets on twitter. The best and most unusual tips will feature in the next issue planned for early next year. In addition, respondents have the chance of winning a one-night stay on a B&B basis for two people sharing at the Palé Hall in Wales and appearing in the magazine.
