I'm a magazine junkie. One of the things I most missed while living in China were my favourite magazines and despite subscribing to two before I left home, Australia Post and China Post somehow conspired to lose most of my issues of Delicious and Feast. I could just imagine the China Post guys smoking heavily and discussing how that recipe for pear upside down cake turned out.
What I wish I'd discovered long ago is that almost all magazines now offer digital subscriptions through magazine sites like zinio
that can be read on any device. Ha! Fancy being able to get an overseas magazine at the same time
it's published, rather than waiting six weeks for the thing and then paying $25 for it? Genius.
Zinio decided - dearest food-loving readers - or reading-loving foodies - that because you are all smart, funny and well-read you should have a FREE magazine subscription of your choice, and have given me TEN subscriptions to give away to you, each for a half- or full-year subscription (depending on the magazine title chosen - they have loads of other titles in addition to Food
Wonderful! What are you waiting for? Enter!! (see below)
