Ed­i­tor’s let­ter

Food and Travel (UK) - - Editor's Letter -

It’s with spring in full bloom that we’re proud to an­nounce a new ad­di­tion to the Food and Travel fam­ily. Our Por­tuguese edi­tion launches this month out of Lis­bon, which hap­pens to be one of my favourite cities. To cel­e­brate it with proper fan­fare, we are de­vot­ing our lead fea­ture to the cap­i­tal (p30). Please join us in rais­ing a shot of cherry brandy to Jose and the team there.

We be­gin the is­sue in con­ver­sa­tion with Mon­ica Galetti, who gives us a frank and hon­est ac­count of her rise to fame as she opens her first solo res­tau­rant, Mere (p18). James Martin is then on hand with some recipes from his French ad­ven­ture (p44) and

Food and Travel reg­u­lar Linda Tubby has myr­iad ways to make the most of the hum­ble egg (p50). We also take a fresh look at Zurich, a city with a po-faced past that’s mod­ernising fast, with its food and drink scene lead­ing the way (p68).

Asia has seen a huge num­ber of ho­tel open­ings over the past year and we’re bring­ing you the best. It was no mean feat pick­ing our top seven, but af­ter much healthy de­bate (read: ar­gu­ment), I know you’ll be happy with the list (p78). As Scan­di­navia shrugs off the long win­ter nights, the re­gion erupts into a riot of fes­ti­vals and colour. If a spring break is on your agenda, we have your itin­er­ary sorted (p84). But if Bri­tain’s spring­time splendour is more your thing, our 10 Best B&Bs will be just the ticket (p94). Mark San­som Ed­i­tor
