    Its $20 for 12 issues/year. I got an ad saying that I can get the first issue for free, then decide if I want to subscribe, so I'm tempted to try it out. Even though it hasn't come out yet, I thought I would query those with a bit more experience for any opinions. I've only been "serious" about cooking for a few years, so the tips/techniques stuff sounds like it might be worth my while (though I already do get some of that from Cook's Illustrated and Fine Cooking). Anyways, if you have any thoughts (especially if you know of reasons why I shouldn't even bother to check it out), I'd love to hear what you have to say. Thanks!

    Yes, it is true! It was classified information until a few years ago, but in fact many intelligence agents are very good cooks. I am thrilled we will finally be given their culinary secrets.

    Sounds like a great money-maker for the CIA. Oh, I'm sure it will have some helpful tips. But.

    So far, I've received three invoices (paid one) promising that I would be thrilled with this magazine.

    Their last missive read, "By now you have had opportunity [sic] to see just how instructive and informative a culinary magazine can be.

    By now I am only convinced that they know where to bill me.

    I have not "had opportunity" to discover how good or bad this rag (which, by the way I no longer wish to receive) is.

    Hope other folk here have had much better luck.

    Ok I have the same problem as you. I have received 4 invoices and no magazine. After looking I think its a news lettter anyway. Well here is the website with the contact info. Call them up and complain, they are sending me two issues.
