olive is informed, authoritative, good-looking and witty.  Reflecting the appetites of intelligent, trend-aware food lovers, olive has a mix of imaginative but achievable recipes, restaurant reviews and food-focussed travel. The stunning visuals, sharp writing and well developed sense of humour set olive apart from other food titles.

olive is Britain’s brightest food magazine.  More than just a collection of recipes, it’s about sharing the good stuff; cooking for friends, discovering great restaurants and enjoying weekends away. Upmarket and glossy, our recipe photography is the best in the market. In print and online we keep our audience up to date with new food trends, provide imaginative recipes for weeknights and weekends and directing them to character-packed restaurants in the UK and abroad.
