New format
on newsstands 4 September!


ELLE à table, an iconic up-market food and cookery magazine launched in 1999 that remains a leader on its market, is continuing its innovative approach this autumn with a completely redesigned format incorporating augmented reality.


  • More modern, with a unique new format and chic, colourful, redesigned layout
  • More structured, with reorganized features and new sequences
  • More educational, to provide guidance for all readers from beginner to expert

The magazine’s focus on the kitchen is evolving and is now structured according to three key sequences: “Starters”, “Main Courses” and “Desserts,” the recipes for which readers will find in the all-new recipe supplement.

  • More alive: since food and cuisine are also synonymous with feelings, imagination and sharing, the new ELLE à table invites readers to explore new culinary stories by spotlighting truly passionate cooks, both amateur and professional, through two new features: La tribu and La madeleine du chef

…And as passionate about food as ever

  • ELLE à table is enriched with all-new content accessible via smartphones and tablets
  • The magazine’s digital dimension brings topics to life through augmented reality

According to Sandrine Giacobetti, editorial director, “The new ELLE à table creates surprise and sparks a passion for food via its unique visual identity; since we are one of the rare food magazines to produce all of our own content, we are thus able to maintain a unique photographic identity thanks to our exclusive contributors.”
“With augmented reality, paper comes to life through digital technology.”
