Eatable Volume 05: Renewal
This edition is dedicated to renewal. Coming to you during a time of relative uncertainty, there are still many things happening around us that fit this theme – all that is starting to flourish again – plants and spring feed, babies being born and wonderful seasonal elements.
It’s a time to reflect on our country, to heal, and rebuild from devastation. To rethink the new, particularly with how we eat and grow our food, drink our wine, and what that means for a sustainable future. It’s a celebration of old and new, intertwined culture, adapting to new ingredients, people, ideas, and techniques. More importantly, this is a time to look after ourselves and daydream of those idyllic places to explore, because while we are still living through a pandemic, there is a time coming when we won’t be.
If life has taught us anything over the past years, it is that we are resilient, and we know there is always opportunity to start over, make change and enjoy turning over a new leaf. This edition is a wonderful place to start.
