Gather Journal No. 8 is available now. The eighth “Origin” edition of Gather Journal explores the many aspects of natural history. Origin indicates the beginning of something, and nature is itself the greatest source, giving rise to everything around us. Including, what we find on our plate. Chapters are arranged by a few of the areas of study that natural history encompasses—geology, space, fossils, the ocean, biodiversity, and the ages—each one spawning its own menu. There’s even a feature inspired by the museum’s famous hall of minerals, though our glimmering crystal blocks are cast from a very different—and sweeter—material.
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.
