Magazine F is a food documentary magazine which focuses on one ingredient per issue. The magazine explores how each ingredient is grown, prepared, and shared in different cultures around the world, through in-depth interviews, inspiring stories, and beautiful photos.
The magazine originates in Korea, where it is published roughly 6 times a year. But as part of its quest to examine the use of foods worldwide, it features information on many locations, traditions, cooks, and producers. Around the world, some people seem to like chocolate, and this issue offers them everything from a profiles of a cacao grower in the Dominican Republic and a chocolate maker in New York City, to brief overviews of the history of chocolate production and consumption—Catholic priests disagreed about whether chocolate was a food or a drink; per capita consumption of chocolate in the UK is 3 kg higher than in the US.
Photo essays celebrate distinctive packing and popular mass market brands, and there’s also a guide to specialty retails and historic producers.
Paperback. Color photographs throughout.
