I wanted to send you a quick note after reading the latest issue of your magazine because I thought it was fabulous! I loved the well-written content, the beautiful layout, fun infographics/illustrations, balance of ads to editorial and paper selection. It's not often I thumb through an entire mag but this one I read cover to cover. Bravo on a beautiful magazine!

I just wanted to drop a short note to let you know how much I've loved discovering your magazine! Having been an art director for trade publications for nearly 15 years, I have a pretty critical eye for print media and yours is really great. The photography is engaging and I think you really pull the reader into every subject you cover. I found myself interested in articles I normally wouldn't be, and I think that says a lot for your design and format.

I am so impressed with the spring issue of edible! There are so many great resources and articles in this edition. It always kicks a** but you gals continue to ramp it up to the next level! Thank you for highlighting women in ag and working with the food co-op, too! So, after you dropped off the magazine, they were all gone in about two hours.

I was at Nothing To It the evening you were talking about the launch of this new read. I thought, 'a fresh, forward publication for Reno. Sounds appealing.' When it arrived, I fell in love. The pages were crisp with the new food mindset, chock full of inspiration to eat and shop locally.

Picked up a copy of edible Reno-Tahoe at the Brooklyn Museum Egyptian Art event at the Nevada Art Museum ... love the mag, keep up the great job!

I just picked up the latest edition at Whole Foods. Wow! You have done an amazing job. I am going to hang onto this magazine and consult it frequently. I imagine my copy will be dog-eared and tattered by the time your next edition comes out. You have a real dynamic going and I hope to see the magazine for years to come. I can't wait to tell my friends and family about it.

Your magazine just keeps getting better and better! Loved this issue! My 12-year-old son picked it up and was fascinated by the solar cookers. He wants to build one.
