Ricardo now in English - Canada's one and only national food magazine

MONTREAL, June 10, 2014 /CNW Telbec/ - It's official! Ricardo Media is launching an English edition of its blockbuster magazine this September!

"A national magazine was our dream from day one," explains celebrity chef Ricardo, owner and the man behind the brand. "We waited for our company and our team to be ready to go nationwide and the time has come."

Packed with delicious recipes that will please foodies as well as beginners, plus tips and tricks to succeed with every recipe, the magazine promises to be a treasure you'll always want to keep. "With a minimum of 50 original recipes per issue, our magazine can be easily compared to a cookbook," says Brigitte Coutu, President of Ricardo Media.

The question everyone asks: Will the English edition be a translation of the French edition? "No it won't," confirms Marie-José Desmarais, Publisher and Director of International Development. "Of course, our recipes work in both languages but we have also teamed up with A-list contributors from across the country to provide quality content that will appeal to Canadians nationwide."

The first issue will hit newsstands September 15. Those who subscribe now at ricardocuisine.com will receive a unique bonus collector's edition.

"This magazine is the fulfilment of a promise," says Ricardo, "that we made when we launched our French edition 12 years ago: to help Canadians learn more about food, to save them time, money and effort, and to give them the opportunity to gather with family and friends around a great meal."

The English edition of Ricardo magazine will be published three times in 2014 and six in 2015 with a coast-to-coast distribution at major retailers.

Ricardo is a chef and a charismatic, easygoing communicator, but Ricardo is also a brand for a contemporary lifestyle. Ricardo Media, inspired by strong family values, works hard to promote the importance of cooking and eating as a family within cross-platform high-quality content. Ricardo's own TV production company—350 Degrees Productions—specializes in lifestyle and cooking shows. Ricardo magazine is a resounding success in Quebec, reaching 742,000 readers every issue. With more than 4,000 triple-tested recipes and hundreds of how-to videos, ricardocuisine.com is a bilingual foodie destination for more than 1.8 million unique visitors. Ricardo created a line of kitchen utensils sold in over 600 stores from coast to coast. Launched in March 2014, Larrivée Vins du Monde is Ricardo's latest success: with two South African wines, this new label reflects Ricardo's personality and taste.
