A message from the editor

Justine Drake

Welcome to the Fresh Living Winter issue!

Baby it’s cold outside… but here in our kitchen, we’re cooking up a storm of deliciousness and keeping the home fires burning!

We want you to stay well fed with our affordable comfort food – from simple as well as elaborate winter pasta meals to a global take on offal (admittedly not for everyone, but so worth trying out) and a myriad of soups that save any day. There are also hoards of super-healthy recipes and a masterclass on making risotto. And that’s just for starters!

You’ll also notice a bigger and better magazine instore – a refreshed masthead, more pages, more recipes and more fabulous ideas than ever! The mag will be published seasonally and each print issue will carry a R25 price tag (outstanding value considering each issue features more recipes than most cookbooks!) and if you like, you can simply pay with your Smart Shopper points.

There are also daily new recipes, videos, hacks, hints and a host of new discoveries to be made on the site. Grab a glass of wine or a cup of tea and start exploring.

Enjoy and get inspired!
