I would love to see Taste magazine (new Zealand) indexed please
I would also love to see La Cucina Italiana added. Thank you!
I would also be interested in Cook's Country magazine.
Apologies lorloff for not replying to your post sooner - I had a very elongated journey back from New Zealand (44 hours!) and some things fell through the cracks.
Have you seen that we now have a list of the magazines indexed under Popular Searches in the right navigation on the Magazines page (not fully complete but will be updated today)? If you click any magazine there you will be able to see whch issues are indexed.
I posted yesterday on a topic "Will back issues of magazines be indexed" in Magazine Talk and I said:
Adding magazine issues is quite a lot of work as all details have to be entered manually plus the cover has to be sourced or scanned. This is very different from books where we import the data from Nielsen or Amazon. For that reason we only add magazines if they are to be indexed. We are always happy to add any issue of a magazine if a member wants to index it - just email us at email@example.com.
We have recently added Heirloom Gardener at a member's request, another member is indexing Vegetarian Times and we have a member who is working her way through a UK magazine, Food and Travel.
We don't need to add more back issues of existing magazines to tell which ones we should focus on as we can tell by the number of members who own the oldest issues - Bon Appétit, Food & Wine, Cooking Light, Saveur, Fine Cooking and Cuisine (NZ) we will definitely be working further back on. We are completely up to date with Cook's Illustrated, Lucky Peach, Jamie Magazine (UK), and Feast (Australia).
Members who haven't yet checked out our magazine section should take a look - most of the magazines have the recipes available for free on their websites so you can add the magazines to your Bookshelf even if you don't subscribe and then access the recipes via Recipe Online links. There are some wonderful recipes available to add to your collection.
Rather than adding all the magazines you listed, could you let us know a couple you want now, we will add them and you can then request to index them? I see you have listed Cook's Illustrated Magazine from the charter issue - those are all already indexed. As I said above, we prefer to only add magazines if they will be indexed. If it turns out that a lot of members want to index archive issues then we definitely consider adding all back issues for a magazine. As you say, magazines are much faster to index than books.
I request TeaTime Magazine
I have all the issues. They began in Spring 2004.
Here's their phone # 205-995-8860
They are currently published by Hoffman Media
Home-Ec101.com and UntrainedHousewife.com have family-friendly, easy-to-prep recipes.
AngEngland - we have a separate Forum thread for suggesting blogs you would like to see indexed. It is called Blog requests.
Australian good Taste would be seconded by many of us downunder. It's the magazine produced monthly by Woolworths Supermarket chain. It's also online through taste.com.au (as is Delicious). ;-)
