Gather Journal No. 5 is out now. The Spring/Summer 2014 Desert issue of Gather Journal uses the word Caravan as its guide. Inside, you will find an array of recipes that bear the imprints of deserts near and far.. There is a chapter devoted to desserts inspired by the iconic visuals of one specific desert (Arizona’s Painted Desert), and another that examines the meanings, both literal and figurative, of an oasis. We pay homage to the beauty of succulents, dream up a kaleidoscopic array of cocktails, and highlight the sense of wanderlust that the desert has been known to inspire.
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.
