    Does anyone know of any professional magazines for Chefs. Not the hobby cook who doesn't know the difference between a hollandaise and a sabayon. One that focus on our industry and the new ideas coming into it. Let me know, thanks

    There is Art Culinaire. It's a hardcover magazine (book) that comes out a couple times of year. Lots of great ideas, but I find the food to be very "fussy", over manipulated. Though I haven't read it in a long time. My favorite mag. is Food Arts. Not tons of recipes, but lots of great articles about trends in food and drink, and a lot of spotlights on seasonal cooking, etc.

    There are another two trades in addition that I like...Plate magazine, and Chef's, both of which are available free to working chefs and easy enough to find on the internet with a search.

    In the UK it's Restaurant magazine; in France, l'Hotellerie.

    Thanks guys, I've ordered the food art and hopefully it is what I am looking for. Incidently, I have found a book on the history of food and I think it is a must read! It's called Food, A culinary history. Check it out. Just doing a tit for tat. Thank you again.

    Another possibility, also free to the trade, is Santé. http://www.santemagazine.comIt is totally geared to the restaurant professional, and has a good deal of space devoted to the bar and wine as well as FOH and BOH management issues.

    I heartily agree on the reccomendations for Food Arts and Sante. The other one I read is National Culinary Review, the mag of the ACF. With these three, I keep up to date on all aspects of the industry.
