GFF (Good Food Forever) Gluten-Free Magazine

GFF (Good Food Forever)Gluten-Free MAGAZINE

I thought the only Gluten-Free magazines were Living Without MagazineGluten-Free Living, and Delight Gluten-Free Magazine, but then I came across GFF Magazine when looking for a Gluten-Free recipe.
GFF is a quarterly magazine for food lovers.

There information on their site (
       GFF celebrates uncompromisingly Good Food (Forever), drinks, and destinations, and the joy of creating and sharing them with others. And, oh yes: it's Gluten-Free (Forever), too, although you'll never taste the difference.
        Each issue features recipes from top chefs, cookbook authors, and bloggers; tutorials for mastering gluten-free cooking; trends, products, people, and places worth knowing about; deliciously indulgent travel; lifestyle extras that will elevate your everyday; and a whole lot of fun.

I got myself a copy and have decided this magazine is now my favorite Gluten-Free magazine of all time. Why? you may be asking. The reasons are:

Reason 1: There is 51 pages of information and recipes.
    The Living without Magazine, Gluten-Free Living  and Delight Gluten-Free Magazine are usually only 25 to 35 pages depending on the time of year.

Reason 2: 98% of it is actual content and not ads.
unlike The Living Without Magazine, Gluten-Free Living and Delight Gluten-Free Magazine are all just ads.

Reason 3: Tons of recipes.
      I believe I counted to be 34 recipes. Compared to the three magazines they would only have 10-15 recipes if you are lucky.

Reason 4:  Has a variety of recipes-
     GFF Magazine has pasta, meat, salads, drinks, desserts, bread, and so on.

Reason 4: It has a variety of information type articles.

Reason 5: Beautiful photos.
     Not that the other magazines didn't because they do.

Please keep in mind I still and will always love reading The Living without Magazine, Gluten-Free Living and Gluten-Free Magazine.

I love the traveling section as well because it not only lists restaurants that serve 100% gluten-free, but also where to stay and where to visit.
