There is a new bi-annual food magazine making the rounds on the shelves of select stockists around the globe that has me mildly obsessed. Gather Journal promises "seasonal recipes and exceptional ideas" and it delivers on both counts in its inaugural issue, which is out now. Printed in Canada, the little 'bookazine' is a thrill for the eyes, filled with beautiful and imaginative photography. It's also chock-full of delicious recipes that appear to be straightforward but interesting enough to whet the appetite. It is put together by Michele Outland (creative director) and Fiorella Valdesolo (editor), brilliantly designed around an underlying theme. In the first issue "Float" is the guiding principle. To accent and offset the plethora of recipes, the magazine also proffers funny food haikus and essays that reflect upon the importance of food and gathering. (Fiorella pens an exquisite piece about cheese puffs, for example.) Witty and purposeful, it is currently one of my favourite things. Click here to find out where to get it.
