We are Pics & Ink - a new way of buying interesting and unusual magazines, the type most people can’t find in their local newsagent.
The internet is great, it means we can access pretty much anything from pretty much anywhere. Magazines have yet to benefit from this. We aren’t about reading magazines online because we really like the touch, smell and beauty of great paper.
So let us be your guide through the world of independent magazines. We’ll tell you about them, show you a few pages, then we will pack them up very carefully and post them to your door.
Salt is the star of this issue and shows up in almost every story and recipe; and we even asked Jennifer Cunningham, a self-proclaimed lover of salt, to share her devotion to the tangy spice in a form of a love letter. With every ingredient, we always look to delve a little deeper, so we brought in the experts from the Welsh salt company Halen Môn to share the knowledge that they’ve gained over the years. Our Creative Director, Ola O. Smit has brought us a moody photo essay full of festive recipes to get you through these cold winter months.
To remind us of those warmer months, we’ve also ventured out to Auburn, a restaurant in Los Angeles where Chef Eric Bost drew inspiration from comfortable, homely spaces for the design of his restaurant. We also visit Evangeline Harbury’s home, where she shares her travel photos from Cuba and regales us with stories of discovery, new friends and of course, food. We never miss a chance to bring light to the good thats being done in the food industry, our interview with chef Doug McMaster talks about his food journey and how he’s working to make restaurants greener.
