Gather Journal No. 4 is out now (Cocoon). In the new Fall/Winter 2014 “Cocoon” issue we explore every incarnation of the word, from recipes that impart a warm, cozy, and distinctly cocoon-like feeling, to those that visually mimic its wrapped and bundled form. We examine the idea of metamorphosis and renewal through the lens of food, devote a special chapter to all things delicate and silken, pen an ode to one specific comfort food, and get up close and personal with butchery casings.
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.
