There are more new magazines launching and unfortunately the majority of them won’t make it. I have yet to find a new one that is good and I am still going with that theme after receiving the first edition of Penzey’s One in the mail last week.
I have been shopping for spices at Penzeys for at least 7 years. It is fantastic. The prices are great and the product is top. Unfortunately the magazine is awful.
Penzeys catalog always had a few recipes in it. I gather they have decided to expand on that. The magazine has pictures of god awful food. The stories are about Christian loving people who are sharing their joyous recipes. I felt like I was reading a piece put out by the local Church and the parishioners were sharing their lasagna recipes. Maybe there is an audience for this terrible publication out there but if I were Penzey’s, I would stick to the spice business.
