What a great idea. If it were real, I would be first in line to subscribe. English language magazines in Kuwait, with the exception of Bazaar on a good day, suck. I think there are a lot of us who enjoy fine dining, design, and travel. To have a regional magazine featuring articles about what Kuwait has to offer would be a "good thing".

Conduct a cooking contest. I'll be the judge.

People you all have great ideas!! It is the readers that make a magazine successful. What is the point if you have a magazine that the editor is the only judge of the content? Recipe for disastor.

The more circulation a magazine acheives, the more it can charge for advertisements. A magazine bought is different than a free magazine. Unfortunately all those free ones given out at Starbucks and the like are so bad, that you just leave them there.

......or use them to start a fire.

P.S. This is not real, just a sample of what it would look like. Maybe I will do one every month, and do the actual contents in here on the blog.

Diamon: Thanks for the ideas, maybe a reader oriented magazine would help, based on votes of certain subjects.

I was wondering 2 days ago what would Chef G. Ramsay say about 3aseeda+eggs+7ashu dish

Zaydoun: Time and resources can be found, the question is can you execute?

Sheba: I don't know what he would say, he probably wouldn't like it :p In the mag cover I was reffering to the Lebanese Ramzi not Gordon Ramsay hehe. If you ask me what I think, I'll just lick the plate clean.

Fluffy: your choice of "seasonings" are too strong, just as strong as the gas burst of a spoonful of wasabi :p You are fond of ma3booch very well. :)

message from bahrain:
1. love your idea of the magazine
2. make it regional, and also include your travels and recipes from those travels ,just like here
3. im in a book club and one girl who loves to cook, replicates recipes from the books we read. today it was afghanistan (just an idea)
4. i read goodfood(bbc) would be nice to have a regional version of it
5. i love home-made recipes, hunt them down im sure you'll be amazed at how much you'll find , better than any good restaurant some of these recipes ;)

Anonymous: Well your points are all good, the rpoblem is having enough people of the right caliber to work in such a magazine. The people with proper culinary experience and taste in the region are unfortunately not much. Look at Chef Ramzi, with all due respect, I dont find anything special isn his cooking. He just knows how to do the basics thats all.
