Ed­i­tor’s let­ter

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

June has some­thing in it for ev­ery­one. For sports fans there’s rugby and rac­ing, for mu­sic lovers there’s Glas­ton­bury and for ev­ery­body else, there’s the pro­duce that sum­mer brings.

We kick off the is­sue in­ter­view­ing Mid­lands mae­stro Sat Bains (p18). He champions Not­ting­hamshire in­gre­di­ents in his two-star Miche­lin kitchen and pro­vides us with some hi­lar­i­ous rev­e­la­tions about his in­tro­duc­tion to food. Fur­ther north, Michael Raf­fael vis­its Lan­cashire’s Rib­ble Val­ley (p30) to ex­plore the inns and mar­kets that make it one of our top picks for a sum­mer stay­ca­tion.

If you’re any­thing like me and try­ing to get in shape for a hol­i­day, we’re here to help with two recipe fea­tures de­voted to healthy eat­ing (p48 & p58). It’s 11 pages of sal­ads, soups and sum­mer pud­dings that are full of nu­tri­ents and don’t scrimp on flavour.

There’s also a gourmet trav­eller fea­ture in Nor­way’s frigid fjords (p64), a tour of two tapas cities (p84) and city breaks in Bath, Madrid and Lima (p89). Do make time for Imo­gen Lepere’s look at The Im­mor­tals, too (p76). She ex­plores pock­ets of the world where life ex­pectan­cies have no right to be as long as they are. It’s a fine in­sight into peo­ple who may seem to have less, but live more.

Flip the mag­a­zine over and check out our kids sup­ple­ment. It’s packed with ideas and in­spi­ra­tion that will keep you and your brood busy through the sum­mer hol­i­days and be­yond.
