Ceci n'est pas une magazine? Those excellent Jenny van Sommers photos which grace the front and back of the new gourmand have a distinctly Magritte feel and inside the art/food crossover continues.There are articles on Lee Miller's post war culinary endeavours, the extravagant dinner's thrown by the godfather of British design Alan Fletcher and his wife Paola, and the ceramic sardines and cabbage platters of Raphael Bordallo Pinheiro. Elsewhere Sonic Youth's guitar godhead Lee Ranaldo talks food in Brooklyn's Ugly baby, there's a short history of fried dough and the resurrection of Soho's great Quo Vadis.
Handsome of face and luxurious of feel, The Gourmand is a food and culture journal which brings timeless, well written, specially commissioned features to our hungry hands.
Chips and gulls, a dangerous combination and a great photo essay.
