Taste & Travel International Magazine and a Giveaway

A cool new magazine has just hit the market! Taste & Travel International is hot-off-the-press and available at Chapters bookstores across Canada.

Credit for launching this new magazine goes to publisher, Janet Boileau, who identifies culinary tourism as one of the fastest growing sectors in the travel industry. Assembling a stellar, international line-up of writers, photographers, cooks and recipe developers, she has put together a classy, glossy, informative and inspiring launch issue with close to 100 pages of solid content to inspire those who love to cook, those who have a palate for delectable food, and those who have a passion for travel.

This first issue introduces a feature article on Canada’s Epicurean Inns, written by Anita Stewart who tours Canada’s foremost culinary lodges and interviews the chefs who are creating world class menus using seasonal local ingredients. From the Rossmount Country Inn in New Brunswick on the east coast of Canada to the Wickanninish Inn in Tofino, B.C. on the west coast of Canada, Stewart has managed to wrestle signature recipes from each one of the chefs which she shares with Taste & Travel readers. This inaugural issue also features the first in a four-part series on seasonal Japanese cooking by Elizabeth Andoh. Throughout the magazine, interwoven with stories of travel, are intriguing, clip-out recipes.

“Food and travel are a lifetime pairing for many of us . . . and a life-time pleasure.”
- Naomi Duguid, award winning culinary travel writer

Kudos to Janet Boileau for having the vision to transform the dream of this magazine into a reality. Janet has a Master of Arts in Gastronomy from Le Cordon Bleu, a PhD in culinary history from the University of Adelaide in South Australia and has a solid background in magazine publishing. She's written articles for and travelled wth David Leite from Leite's Culinaria and has befriended many well-known celebrities in the food world.

I am pleased to be part of this inspiring new endeavor as the Food Editor. It was exciting to tackle new recipes and photograph exotic dishes I’d never experimented with before. {I highly recommend buying the issue just for the Enchiladas Suizas on page 80.}

Taste & Travel International sells for $6.95CAD at Chapters stores across Canada and will soon be available internationally. It will be published quarterly. Subscriptions are $25.00 for four issues and can be ordered from: or here. Soon, this magazine will be available internationally through Zinio, a service that transforms print magazines into digital format.

    I already follow you on Twitter and on your RSS :-)

    I can't wait to see this magazine. I love the UK Food & Travel but it is so expensive when bought here. I'll definitely check out this one.
