At The Table is a creative platform that explores and celebrates British food culture.
In issue 2, Diana Henry rhapsodises about her love of menus, Rachel Roddy explores the connections she found between the honest northern food she knew as a girl and the gutsy cooking she discovered in her adopted city of Rome, and Alexander Lobrano recalls the British food he came to love as a hungry American student in 1970s London. We are also honoured to be printing an article by the late Elizabeth David, a writer who arguably did more than anyone to change this country’s food culture for the better.
Photographer Rachel Louise Brown captures the atmosphere of London restaurants at closing time, Jamie Freeth focuses on a very unusual form of street food, and we travel to the coast to consume preposterous ice cream sundaes and hear fishermen’s tales. And there’s a dash of poetry, fiction and a comic strip thrown into the mix for good measure.
The magazine is 120 pages, thread bound with a matt Pantone cover.
