New Jellied Eel magazine slithering into stockists
After an unexpected break, the new edition of the Jellied Eel magazine is making its way across London. And wow, it is a good one (if we say so ourselves).
With new Editor Abi Glencross, of Sustainable Food Story and Duchess Farms, taking the reins to curate a magazine with stories; from heroic Londoners using food for good, a deeper dive into sugary drink’s impact on the planet, and a first look at diversity in sustainable food, from new 'Eel writer - Mecca Ibrahim at Women in the Food Industry.
Regular features in this jam-packed issue cover the best good food restaurants to try out in Around Town, and Tom Hunt’s fantastic pulse-based recipe. We also speak to Sustain’s Capital Growth team for the lowdown on their new Community Harvest, growing tonnes of food for those in needs alongside Julie Smith’s Autumn gardening tips, too!
Covid-19 has hit hospitality incredibly hard; we speak to some of the affected restaurants about their experience and look to the future at how they are planning to build back better, with sustainability at the heart of their recovery.
Our Guest Editor Abi Aspen Glencross also takes the opportunity to talk to a farmer who feeds us via some of London’s best restaurants, Calixta Kilander of Flourish Produce. They discuss regenerative farming and what it is like growing food for chefs. Abi also visited The Dinner Ladies ‘Supper at Sea’ dinner club for a good food review.
