Cook Magazine, celebrating its 15th year of publication, engage more with their readers via Cook Club as they continue to look for ways to involve their readers and evolve into a more complete and awesome experience. Although they’ve been sharing recipes and food finds through articles and pictures for over a decade now, they would like to bring the readers closer to the action as well. This would also mean tagging them along in their actual journeys of food discoveries.
Being in the food publication industry, restaurant invitations are a daily occurrence for the Cook team. Whether it is to try out and feature newly opened places, new menu items from an old favorite digs or to meet and greet clients and potential advertisers, eating has always been a part of their job. But among the numerous dining adventures, their Foodie Road Trips are the most fun and most anticipated. These are the out of town trips they do to discover dining destinations, a food tour that takes them to big and small towns in search of the best eating any province has to offer. Of course, it doesn’t just stop with the eating. These trips are also opportunities to see the sights, enjoy the hotels and resorts and meet fellow food lovers all over the country.
COOK CLUB was established for the loyal readers, so that they can take them along with these food tours and share with them the discoveries they make. Travelling by land provides them the opportunity to bond with their members during the journey, while at the same time having the flexibility to stop and make detours as they wish. Aside from the food, COOK CLUB members will also experience the same hospitality extended to the team by partner hotels and resorts throughout the country.
As part of COOK CLUB, members also get to share their favorite recipes and foodie finds. Not only will these be posted in Cook’s Official Facebook page and website, but in monthly issues as well. It is their way of giving their readers the complete Cook Magazine experience, bringing them along in their journey of food discovery and sharing these experiences with the world through their magazine, website and through social media. Cook Club literally let each reader become a member of the Cook Magazine team.

Cook Magazine Studio Kitchen
Last year, the Cook Magazine Studio Kitchen was also launched. It would be a venue where cooking, eating and food photography all seamlessly blend. Recently, the kitchen has had a bit of a spruce up with Mother’s Best sponsoring kitchen cabinetry and a new backsplash. The addition added some warmth to the kitchen and provides a space to display products like Mother’s Best condiments.
On the editorial side, a couple of new sections to the magazine were also added: the Home & Living section contains crafts, decorating and DIY projects; the Health & Wellness section by Cook’s good friend, Dolly Dy-Zulueta features food and beverage products, restaurants and destinations that promotes well-being.
