Thinking of what to make for a meal is the hardest part of cooking. Sure, you have thousands of food blogs and websites that can provide some inspiration, but most of the time those recipes are either incredibly difficult or far from foolproof.
The ideal solution is a recipe from a respectable source, like a food magazine. Edited by experts and made with the average cook in mind, the recipes found in food magazines are the best way to find reliably delicious meals. Best of all, they come out every month, thus providing you with a constant stream of meals to make!
Unfortunately, there is a downside: you actually need to go out and buy food magazines. That’s where Texture comes in. A digital magazine service like no other, Texture collapses all the best food magazines (and scores of other titles) into a cross-platform app you can access at any time.
An amazing gift to any food-lover in your life (or for yourself), Texture makes cooking dinner easy. See what we mean below, with a selection of recipes from magazines you can read on the regular through Texture.
