A North American edition of Jamie magazine, named after the famous TV chef Jamie Oliver, will be launched on newsstands in Canada and the U.S. November 14. According to a release, the first issue will be a special holiday issue. The magazine launched in the UK in 2008 and already has local editions in Russia, Germany and Holland.
It seems the first issue is a "taster" or preview that will include North American-themed stories: a travel story on Nova Scotia, the favorite autumn recipes of American winemaker Maria Helm Sinskey, “A Better Burger” feature on burgers, as well as a sample of “The Guide,” a monthly back-of-the-book section that features “Recipe, Ideas & Techniques to Make You a Better Cook.”
The 8-times-a-year North American version is being published and distributed by idoodlemedia, which has offices in Ottawa and London. Robert Sowah is publisher and CEO of idoodlemedia.Subscribers who pay $32.95 for the first 8 issues also get access to extra digital content with each issue. It will be $40.95 after the first year.
