Envision a magazine with beautiful photographs of Italy. One with colorful and artistic shots of food and drink, as well as, informative articles and recipes aplenty. A publication just like this comes out eight times a year.
In La Cucina Italiana, there are recipes for Italian appetizers, soups, entrees, sauces, desserts, cocktails and more.
One type of article in the magazine has destination information on areas in Italy, e.g., Sardinia (June issue) and the Lariano Triangle (July/August issue) in it. An article such as this describes where to stay and where to eat.
Another type of article inside describes the background of an ingredient or a dish, and the area history where that particular item is made.
At the newstand, each issue is $5.99. I received a year-long subscription gratis. I think if someone paid $5.99 for a single issue of a magazine, it should be really long like a book (Think: those huge Vogues that are the size of telephone books). When considering the length, this one seems like it should be around $3.99. Though, I can see why it is more money than that. It has a very specialized theme, a great deal of photographs and content, with minimal ads.
