The ink on our new Autumn issue is drying even now! It’ll be out before the end of this week, focusing on seasonal topics including foraging for blackberries, harvest festivals & food fairs, a scientist’s-eye view of mushrooming, menu ideas for Halloween, and a special feature on Streetfood.
As you probably know, The Taster does not set limits on its field of interest in anything culinary; our roving DJ reporter appears to have roved significantly further afield than usual this time, reporting back on the dietary habits of astronauts and moonwalkers. We also interviewed a real character, Master Chef Grant Hawthorne, who’s decided to educate us Brits about proper peri peri dishes, and been kind enough to provide a recipe for South African pulled pork.
Plus we have a viewpoint from a streetfood market organiser, and details of this year’s British Street Food Awards. It’s all part of the new streetfood revolution.
Other features include:
* “How Cooking Made Us Human” Extract from a fascinating book by a Harvard Scientist on the role of fire in human evolution
* A Medieval Menu From roast cockentrice to fried oranges and sugar sculptures
* Lunch, NASA & the Universe Lunches in Space
* Foraging A brief history, and a tale of blackberrying
* Seasonal Autumn Foods Plus wine & drink matches, and a scientist’s view of mushrooms & fungi
* Fish Watch Quick run-through of current sustainable species, and a pointer towards a useful App
* Autumn Nibbles & Notes A selection of popular snippets, kitchen gifts & pick of the food festivals
* Tales from the Nosh Pit A DJ reports on a very special item of streetfood in Malaysia
* Tales from Home Our homegirl analyses food festivals in town and country
Plus the usual calendar of food events, tricksy food-related crossword, news round-up and some very funny foodie ‘horrorscopes’. We’ve put various snippets and bits on the website but obviously not all – to get the full package, subscribe today or get the App (also due out later this week).
Hope to see you soon!
