Originating from South America, tomatoes are one of the most produced vegetables in the world. Tomatoes are used in as many dishes in varied ways as there are varieties. With their unique savory flavor, tomatoes are an important part of distinctive food cultures across many regions, particularly in Spain and Italy. They also serve as the origin, essence, and symbol of Mediterranean cooking for their role in pizza, pasta, and gazpacho. They are also widely used in mass-produced processed foods like ketchup, and have the potential to lead food culture into the future.

Magazine F is a food documentary magazine co-created by Magazine B and Baemin, which introduces one particular ingredient that has had a significant impact on people’s table. Baemin has become a critical mover and shaker in South Korean contemporary food culture, and B provides a balanced view on brands through multi-layered stories. This collaboration brings together these two areas of expertise in F, which is hoped to become a record of essential ingredients and food culture of our time. Magazine B’s sister publication, Magazine F enriches your experience with everyday ingredients. Each issue explores how an ingredient is grown, prepared, and shared in different cultures around the world, through in-depth interviews, inspiring stories, and beautiful photos.
