Our final Podcast episode of 2021 features three magazines linked by name to celebratory foods. Its origins lie in a planned live event; with Covid rearing its head again we converted the idea into a podcast.
First up, art director Holly Catford talks to Jeremy Leslie via Zoom from Bristol about the many deadlines she faces as the year ends, and in particular Cheese magazine. Issue two of the ‘Magazine of Culture’ hits shops just in time for Christmas—we hear about Holly’s working processes as well as her editor’s holiday cheese advice.
We then meet Osman Bari, the man behind delightful risographed magazine Chutney. Danielle Mustarde talks to him over a hot chocolate at a busy local café, and hears about the origins of his magazine, which uses the idea of Chutney as a structural device to share ideas of culture and identity.
Then it’s back to Shop, where Jeremy talks to Noble Rot editor/co-founder Dan Keeling about his magazine and its place in a business that now includes two successful London restaurants and a new wine shop. The magazine — now on its 27th issue — set an alternative approach to wine coverage that Dan and business partner Mark Andrew have cleverly transferred to hospitality.
