SMH and The Age to launch glossy monthly Good Food magazine

Good Food magazine will be inserted into The Sydney Morning Herald and The Age on the first Friday of each month, in addition to the regular Tuesday newsprint Good Food section.

The magazine will be edited by national Good Food editor Ardyn Bernoth, and rolled out from 4 October 2019.

“Good Food is the most revered food brand in Australia, with an extremely loyal and engaged readership, and we are thrilled to expand it further across news and magazine print, digital, events, The Good Food Guide and cookbooks,” said Nine’s publishing director, food and travel, Trudi Jenkins.

“The magazine will focus on our key content pillars, with recipes from renowned chefs and food writers, restaurant reviews and food-focused travel features. Our editorial team is the most knowledgeable and independent in the country and will continue to share its unrivalled expertise on everything from the latest places to eat and drink to the food trends readers want to know about.”

Chris Nardi, Nine’s director of sales – publishing, added that the new publication is an excellent advertising opportunity for clients.

“More than two million Australians read Good Food in The Sydney Morning Herald, The Age and on each month. To extend such a strong brand into a glossy format is exciting and offers so many more opportunities for advertisers to reach this highly engaged audience,” Nardi said.

“Good Food magazine will be the best way to reach Australia’s food lovers in a beautiful content environment.”

The 40th Good Food Guide Awards will be held on Monday 30 September, and, for the first time, in Brisbane.

The Good Food Guide, edited by Myffy Rigby, is a restaurant guide compiled by independent critics who award one, two and three-hat awards, with this year’s version to be published on 1 October by Simon & Schuster for $29.99, in association with Citi and Vittoria Coffee.
