Colours galore in the new Flavours.
October issue of Flavours magazine has a snazzy new look.
SPROUTING at a newsstand near you (or positively blooming in your mailbox), Flavours is coming up roses ... and chrysanthemums and cowslip creepers too! The October issue celebrates a new look and feel for the food lifestyle magazine, which has been feeding readers with mouth-watering inspiration for 19 delicious years now.
The love for all things bespoke and artisanal has infused Flavours, rendering it a whole lot more whimsical and crafty-clever, and yes, downright pretty. And to celebrate the snazzy new look and feel, flip the pages to find RM53,000 worth of great giveaways for lucky readers!
They range from stays at swanky hotels to a private party for 10 at one of KL’s newest bars. Choose also from dining vouchers at popular restaurants and bake shops, or vouchers for special cooking classes at some of KL’s top culinary studios.
So many things to covet, so little time. Presents aside, Flavours’ pages itself hold lots of mouth-watering bites for foodie readers. Discover just what happens when you stop to smell the roses ... and take a big bite. Creative, flower-decked dishes can pull double duty as a centrepiece for your table, thanks to Thai maestro-chef Korn, who has unfurled 12 beautiful and inspiring creations made with edible flowers.
Learn just why the devil is in the details for Demon Chef and culinary enfant terrible Alvin Leung, get up and personal with celebrity chef and culinary deconstructor Malcolm Goh, and take an evocative journey to Iran in a special travel feature which waxes lyrical on the country’s rich culture and culinary heritage.
Kick back with wineglass in hand and explore the wonderful wines of Dominique Portet, a Frenchman in South Australia, then take a look at (or a sip of) Moet & Chandon’s new 2004 Grand Vintage and check the limited edition Absolut Unique.
Flavours’ dedication to good food and good living translates to pointers on the best places to eat and party at in town, or to grab that latte. And readers also stand a chance to win one of 10 copies of Luke Nguyen’s new The Greater Mekong cookbook.
And don’t forget that in October, the Week of Taste is celebrated around the world, including here in KL. This altruistic initiative originated in France, dedicated to both culinary education and enjoyment. In line with this, Flavours is offering a special subscription package.
Choose from two packages, both priced at RM200. You’ll get a six-month subscription to the magazine (worth RM55), as well as 1) A cooking class at Jaya Grocer (worth RM200) and a RM130 gourmet hamper (with an exclusive Jaya Grocer shopping bag), or 2) a cooking class at The French Culinary School in Asia (worth RM200) and a RM70 Gourmandines voucher.
All this, and more, in the October issue. How can one little magazine hold so much goodness? Well, it’s no wonder that Flavours is bursting into bloom!
