The Baking Sheet from King Arthur Flour Wins Magnum Opus Award

Baking Newsletter Wins Silver for Best Regular Feature in the "Oscars" of Custom Publishing

King Arthur Flour’s bi-monthly baking newsletter, The Baking Sheet, has been honored in the ContentWise 5th Annual Magnum Opus awards, the leading awards program dedicated exclusively to custom publishing. The Baking Sheet received the Silver Award in the Best Regularly Featured Department category for its Recipe Makeover section.

“When I entered, I looked at the award winners for previous years: Fine Cooking, Food & Wine, Saveur ...all much bigger, certainly better known food titles,” said Susan Reid, editor of The Baking Sheet. “We’re immensely proud and pleased that our enthusiasm for baking has been recognized by people who had their pick of glossy food magazines to choose from.”

The Baking Sheet began publication in 1990 and has since grown from a black-and-white, 7 1/2”-by-8 1/2” newsletter to a full-size, 20-page booklet including plenty of recipes, color photographs, process illustrations, extra tips and information, news about what’s happening at King Arthur Flour, and regular departments like Bread Machine Bounty, When Company’s Coming, and Recipe Makeover. The bi-monthly baking newsletter, with circulation of around 22,000, will increase to 24 pages and all color photography with the upcoming Fall 2008 issue.

Subscriptions to The Baking Sheet cost just $19.95 a year (six issues) and are available through King Arthur Flour - the Baker’s Catalogue by calling 800.827.6836 or visiting kingarthurflour.com.
