A message from the editor

Justine Drake

Welcome!

When the March 2020 lockdown happened, we were forced to halt the print of our May issue and instead set up a mini-website for readers to access recipes, tips, hacks and all the good stuff our print magazine is known for.

Happily, it’s been a roaring success and we’re here to stay!

You can still buy the print mag in store, albeit now quarterly, and of course access back issues here. But best of all, we can use our website to post all manner of recipes and videos and to keep you up to date with all things delicious, nutritious and generally smile inducing. Make sure you never miss a thing and follow us on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.

Enjoy and get inspired!
