DES MOINES, Iowa, March 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — Allrecipes magazine, part of the world’s largest digital food brand and social-network for home cooks, unveils a new look in its April/May issue on newsstands today.

Allrecipes April/May 2016 issue

Published six times per year by Meredith Corporation (NYSE:MDP; www.meredith.com), the magazine has grown rapidly from a 500,000 rate base at its 2013 launch to 1.3 million today, and now reaches an audience of 7.6 million. Allrecipes magazine combines the brand’s digital insights with editorial expertise to inspire readers with the best ofAllrecipes.com.

“The remarkable growth of Allrecipes across both print and digital has allowed us to reach even more home cooks with a deeper, richer brand experience,” says Editor-in-Chief Cheryl Brown. “And with our digitally savvy design and expanded content areas, we have plenty more to showcase in the months ahead.”

The magazine’s new look and feel was inspired in part by the new Allrecipes.com. The website relaunched last fall with a photography-driven, responsive design that offers a more social and personalized digital experience for home cooks across all their devices. It delivers personalized streams of food inspiration including recipes, cooks, how-to videos, articles, blogs and more ways to connect the brand’s 49.6 million unique visitors, 39 percent of them millennial home cooks. By introducing a print redesign it also emphasizes the brand’s commitment to engaging with the next generation of Allrecipes users.

The magazine’s refresh includes:

  • FAVORITES: A redesigned look for our most popular column, reflecting the site’s new photo-driven design and encouraging home cooks to save their favorite recipes.
  • GET-TOGETHERS: A new lifestyle section that focuses on casual entertaining–complete with simple recipes, drinks, a playlist, easy tabletop design, and a game plan to pull it all off.
  • COOK 2 FOLLOW: Spotlights Allrecipes community members so you can see what other home cooks are doing, making, and laughing about in their kitchens.
  • “YOU SAID” FORMAT: The magazine has always had community comments on the recipes, and now the reviews include profile photos as well. Putting a face on those comments to make it clearer than ever that they come from people just like you.

“The magazine’s redesign is already generating excitement in the advertising community,” says Publisher Steven Grune. “Allrecipes understands its readers’ needs and expectations, and allows them to enjoy the very best from cooks around the world. Our engaging editorial product directly benefits our marketing partners by placing their advertising message in a very responsive environment.”

As a company, Meredith reaches nearly three out of four (26 million) Millennial women across its broad portfolio of magazine and digital brands.
