Gather: A New Bi-Annual Themed Food Journal Focused on Recipes
There have been a number of independent food + lifestyle journals to hit stands in recent years—Kinfolk, Wilder, Lucky Peach, to name just a few. The newest journal to enter the fray is Gather, a “recipe-driven food publication devoted not just to cooking and eating, but to what those acts inspire: the bringing of people together.” Each issue will focus on a theme (“Float” is the inaugural theme) and be divided into chapters—”much like a meal,” they say, with “amuse bouches, starters, mains, and desserts.”
I’m most intrigued by the focus on a theme for each issue. “Float” may seem like an unusual theme, but it makes sense once you understand it: As they say:
From floating in salty ocean water with the sun beating down on our bellies, to meals so fresh and bright they have a certain buoyancy about them, it’s a word that evokes pure summer. And we loved the challenge of dreaming up recipes that would conjure those very same feelings.
