Announcement from the publisher

Published October 25, 2012

The following is a statement from Great Food Magazine publisher Matt Wright…

“I’m sad to announce that the Winter 2012 issue of Great Food Magazine (out on November 1, 2012) is the last to be published in its current printed format.

High print costs and strong economic headwinds have conspired to make the publication as it stands (and I stress those three words!) impossible to sustain – despite wonderful feedback and a growing readership.

But I’m happy to report that this is not the end for Great Food. Far from it. From now, the focus is on Great Food Club, which is going from strength to strength.

Next year we will print an annual guide for Great Food Club members, focusing on the best independent restaurants, pubs, food shops and producers. We’re also planning a Great Food Club app and have plenty of other exciting plans.

The printed guide will be an essential handbook for food lovers, and to receive it you need to join Great Food Club – which is currently free. You can sign up quickly and easily here.

I’d like to thank everyone who has supported Great Food magazine over the past two-and-a-half years, especially our subscribers (to whom we will be writing individually) and our advertisers (likewise). I’m happy to say that this website will continue to be a hive of activity, offering recipes, reviews, features and more.”
