Sale&Pepe, the monthly edited by Laura Maragliano, is celebrating its 25th anniversary and for the occasion a special anniversary issue will be available at newsstands from Tuesday 21 February. Leader among upscale cookery titles – with over 924,000 readers (+4.6%, Audipress 2011/III) – Sale&Pepe is a point of reference for all women who love cooking and are looking for exclusive and refined menu ideas.
“I am proud to celebrate with this special issue the 25th anniversary of Sale&Pepe, a magazine that has been able to combine easy recipes with imagination and high quality images,” stated Laura Maragliano. “To celebrate the progress made from the first issue to today, we took a look at the features from the early days to reinterpret the recipes of the past with a contemporary twist and to show our readers what we do. It seems appropriate that our readers can see who is behind the magazine and who works to make sure that every month is special,” concluded the editor.
An issue that takes another look at some of the features, recipes and places that have made the history of Sale&Pepe from 1987 to today: 25 years of ideas, advice, smells and tastes.
To celebrate this important anniversary there are also a range of new features online: from 21 February a Facebook page dedicated to the anniversary; an iPhone and iPad app with 7,000 recipes, also with video, to share with your friends and the possibility to create your own shopping list; a section with the 25 most original covers; a special dedicated to cakes, complete with background and news on the Sale&Pepe web page.
Completing the offer of the Sale&Pepe system are the cookery courses of the “Cook&Books Academy” in Milan: on the third floor of the Mondadori Multicenter Duomo, loads of occasions for adults and children to try out their talent in the kitchen (www.corso-di-cucina.it ).
Sale&Pepe has also created Sale&Pepe Kids, the first magazine for parents and little chefs. Following the success of the first issue, another will be on newsstands shortly for kids who want to unleash their imagination creating new recipes and for adults who want to have fun while preparing simple dishes with their children.
