A Gourmand is a person who takes pleasure and interest in food of all kinds and The Gourmand is a new food and culture journal that binds inspirational words, images and ideas with the humble and universal subject of food.
Based in London, The Gourmand is inspired not only by a true passion for food and dining but by the exciting influx of new restaurants, bars, cafe’s, stalls and ingredients that are increasingly available to us. The Gourmand was born as a means to share this exciting cultural shift and to celebrate food as a catalyst for creativity.
The Gourmand is the culmination of a journey which began with a dinner at our home with friends, many of whom have contributed to this first issue.As we dined we discussed our initial ideas for editorial, illustration and photography projects and it has been a pleasure to watch these ideas form in to the journal you are about to read.
The creation of The Gourmand is a testament to the communicative power of food, and its inherent relationship with the arts. We hope you enjoy the first issue as much as we have enjoyed the process of creating it.
