Now Serving: Food & Wine on Flipboard
Inside Flipboard / May 19, 2014
After Ariane and Michael Batterberry got married in 1968, they set out to create a culinary magazine that felt more grounded than other fancy food magazines and appealed to men as much as women. Ten years later, with some financing from Hugh Hefner, a prototype of “The International Review of Food and Wine,” debuted in Playboy magazine.
Its name evolved to “Food & Wine,” and it now cooks up over 900,000 monthly readers who like to peruse recipes, tips, wine pairings, travel advice, restaurant reviews and more. Chefs such as Mario Batali and David Chang share how-tos on some of their dishes—but the true Food & Wine “superstar” is the magazine’s signature event, The Food & Wine Classic, which takes place every year in Aspen, Colorado. Viewers of Top Chef will know this outdoor event to be a grand prize for the winner of the competition, and Forbes has said that attending it is the “best foodie gift ever.”
Well, starting today, foodies get another gift: Food & Wine has been made for Flipboard. Flip through page after page of food inspiration, then save what you’d like to make by tapping on the “+” button on any article and flipping into your own magazine. Enjoy!
