Gather Journal No. 3 is out now (Rough Cut). In the new Spring/Summer 2013 “Rough Cut” issue of Gather Journal we focus our attention on film. Specifically, summer movies—all their various sub-genres (the road trip, the summer romance, the beach idyll, and the summer in the city) inspired an assortment of recipes as eclectic as the films themselves. We pay homage to the oeuvres of two directors (Alfred Hitchcock and Wes Anderson) admired for their distinctive, albeit very different, visual approaches; we recall memories of summer camp food, both personal and fictional; we re-imagine famous cinematic food scenes; and we laud the everlasting power of the movie soundtrack.
Gather Journal is a bi-annual recipe-driven food magazine devoted not just to cooking and eating, but to what those acts inspire: the bringing of people together. You will find lushly imagined images from some of the country’s most esteemed food photographers and fun, insightful writing. Each issue is divided into chapters, much like a meal—amuse bouches, starters, mains, and desserts—along with regular special features, from studied examinations of ingredients to whimsical essays about memorable eating experiences. Gather Journal has been launched because of a shared love of food and cooking, and a desire to create a magazine with staying power on your bookshelf; one that you could return to again and again for inspiration.
