Wel­come to JAN­UARY

Olive - - Contents -

For many rea­sons, too many rea­sons, 2016 was a bit of a rot­ter as years go, wasn’t it? And so it seems more rel­e­vant than ever to think about mak­ing pos­i­tive changes in 2017. For us at O, that’s all about try­ing new things, adding to our life ex­pe­ri­ences, not sub­tract­ing from them. No de­pri­va­tion or di­ets here! For a start, we’re in­cor­po­rat­ing turmeric into our di­ets. It has so many in­cred­i­ble ben­e­fi­cial health prop­er­ties (which only come from con­sum­ing it in its nat­u­ral form – sup­ple­ments just won’t do), be­sides which, and it adds a beau­ti­ful golden hue to any­thing it touches. Our sun­shine bowl of turmeric broth on the front cover, with ginger chicken dumplings, ticks ev­ery box for us. Noo­dles? Good. Dumplings? Good. Greens? Good. Broth? Gooooooood. It’s ready in only 30 min­utes, too, so once you’ve tried it, it’s sure to be­come a sta­ple in your mid­week reper­toire. We’ve also some bril­liant new ve­gan recipes that were a huge hit in the test kitchen – they come from a res­tau­rant in Melbourne and brought new tech­niques and flavours that even we hadn’t tried be­fore, in­clud­ing palm hearts (so de­li­cious!) and an egg-free aïoli that would have had any of us fooled. Wine writer Kate Hawk­ings is find­ing her own joy in new and un­usual wine va­ri­eties this month. Or how about try­ing yuzu? Genevieve Tay­lor has put to­gether a bright fea­ture on cook­ing with cit­rus and her smoked trout eggs royale with a yuzu hol­landaise is in­spired – I know what I’m cook­ing for brunch this week­end! We’ve even in­tro­duced new read­ing for you in our Hot off the pass fea­ture. It’s your chance to learn about a ris­ing star in the food world – this time Adam Cogh­lan has been speak­ing to Ro­sio Sanchez, who’s ar­guably cre­at­ing some of the best Mex­i­can food in the world, in Copen­hagen. And, in our Ex­plore sec­tion, there’s a new travel fea­ture, In­sta­travel, for those of you as snap-happy on your hols as we are. Plus, we also have an­other great O reader event at Le Manoir in Fe­bru­ary (the per­fect gift for Valen­tine’s). You, read­ers, are ex­tremely wel­come. So, here’s to the new, and all of the ex­cite­ment it brings. Af­ter all, a change is as good as a rest, right?
