Gourmantic is an online magazine with a focus on travel, food, drink, events and lifestyle. The website was launched in 2009 and registered as a business in 2013.
As Gourmantic is a duo with Corinne as principal writer/editor and Kevin as photographer and contributor. We also have contributors who are personally known to us who attend events and provide coverage for the website on behalf of Gourmantic. We always appreciate an invitation for two with pre-arranged access to photography.
We accept media invitations to food, drink and travel-related events and launches. Please note that accepting an invitation (or a product) may not always result in featuring it on Gourmantic. Occasionally, we may only do so on our social media network alone as time does not always permit an article for every event. Furthermore, our content reflects positive experiences. If it has failed to impress, or if it does not fit our content, we do not give it publicity. Our articles remain our honest opinion and are not influenced by the acceptance of any product, invitation or advertising. We strongly value our editorial integrity, our readers’ trust and the reputation we have built by sharing positive content.
