Food by National Geographic Traveller (UK) is celebrating the flavours of winter in its new issue, with help from some of the biggest names in food.
In the winter edition of this special-issue series, big-name chefs and food writers such as Richard Corrigan, Nisha Katona, Tom Kerridge and Judy Joo share the dishes, ingredients, traditions and treasured destinations that make the colder months a time to cherish.
Glen Mutel, editor of Food by National Geographic Traveller, said: “The contributors to our cover story all have something in common: an unbridled passion for the winter and the gastronomic opportunities they bring.
“Partly, they’re tapping into the pleasures of seasonality and the joys of wintry ingredients such as parsnip, beetroot, game, quince and Seville oranges. But it’s also about the wintry dishes they can’t wait to create — for example, Andrew Wong’s beloved, double-boiled chicken broth, and Bronte Aurell’s saffron buns.
“Then there are those culinary experiences so treasured they’ve become traditions: raclette in the Alps; cloudberry jam in Sweden; clear Polish soup served in a bread bowl.”
Also In This Issue
Also in this issue, we head to Tucson, Arizona for arguably the best Mexican food in the US; try some of the countless rice dishes unique to Alicante; and explore the historic French region of Armagnac, where the brandy-making tradition stretches back centuries. There’s all this, plus the culinary highlights of Sydney, Galway and Tokyo.
