Simple physics dictates that when you stir your tea in a cup, centrifugal forces should make any tea leaf residue move outwards towards the wall of the tea cup. Why is it then, that the opposite happens and they gather in the center? Don't worry if you do not know the answer. Nobel Prize laureate Erwin Schrödinger (the one with the cat) could not find an explanation either. He brought the question to Albert Einstein, who came up with a theory, which he used to then also explain why riverbeds have a meandering shape. Which shows that a simple cup of tea makes even the brightest of us a bit smarter.⁠ And so does Journal du Thé issue 3, with wonderful little anecdotes like this, an Indian tea diary, the most beautiful tea cups and pots from ceramic and copper, tii-time in Zimbabwe, and stories about Wagashi - the most delightful Japanese sugary treats.

Strudel, Noodles and Dumplings is a long-awaited revival of the underrated German cuisine, proving that there is more to it than Bratwurst and Black Forest gateau.⁠ Anja Dunk’s German food is gently spiced, smoky and deeply savoury. From recipes such as whole-wheat buttermilk waffles to caraway roast pork and red cabbage, quince and apple slaw, her way of cooking is vibrant, honest, quick and deeply intertwined with the seasons and the weather.

Every day feels like groundhog day? Well, let’s make it a Friday then! In line with this, we like to recommend you the latest issue of Noble Rot, which name, ‘The Difficult Second Album’, speaks volumes for these nerve-racking times. With an extended interview between Dan Keeling (one of the two wine and food enthusiasts behind this fantastic magazine) and hard-partying bad boy of the 80’s, American novelist and wine writer Jan McInerney aka the ‘hedonist in the cellar’, a flashback of how Henry Harris remembers meeting and falling instantly under the spell of chef and food critic Simon Hopkinson, as well as a detour through Catalonia’s most interesting new wines, Noble Rot provides the exact amount of liquid self care we need right now.

If there is one thing that could bring world peace then probably Hummus. People may not agree on politics or faith. They might have different opinions and views. But they can all agree on a bowl of Hummus.⁠ With this thought in mind a Palestinian, a Lebanese, and an Israeli who met in Paris set out to a joint utopian journey. On the Hummus Route runs across the streets and alleyways of nine Middle Eastern hummus hubs, from Cairo all the way to Damascus. It is a salute to the humble chickpea and the many ways it is eaten from, of course, hummus to falafel, crackers, soups, casseroles, salads, sauces, and pies, but it is also about humanity and the things that connect us because the love for Hummus transcends place, time, and borders.⁠ Buy...

This cookbook began in 1969 as a notebook that Dorothy Iannone took with her to the many places she and her lover Dieter Roth went, so that she could always cook the food he loved for him. Personal sentences are interspersed between the lists of ingredients, revealing the joys and turbulence of her life and her passionate relationship. So this cookbook is no ordinary cookbook, but a colourful scribble of collected recipes, mixed with notes and drawings. Between the lines of the recipes it tells the story of life and love. It is a perfect example of how Iannone mixes daily life, creativity and thought, culminating in her vision of cooking as an outlet for eroticism and introspection.⁠ Buy...

Mysterious forces are said to the miniature version of the cucumber. Whether as substantive indicator for pregnancy, as unbeatable hangover cure or as ultimate super power source for athletes the inconspicuous pickle is much more than a nutrition booster. In it's latest issue the annual Club Sandwich Magazine has looked deeper in the jar - and came across some rather kooky, unconventional facets and facts about the cornichon. From Austrian artist Erwin Wurm who preferably portraits himself as gherkin in all shapes and sizes, to legendary Henry J. Heinz who became the king of ketchup on behalf of the pickle and the hashtag #touchthepickle as symbol of the women's liberation in India - just to recall some facts of the extraordinary cultural and historical implication which slumber within this immortal vegetable. Thus, Club Sandwich easily joins our magazine shelf of curiosities right by the side of Macguffin, Science of the Secondary and F Food. Culture - to name only a few of our favourite monothematic feasts. Buy...

Die Deutschen und ihr Brot - eine Liebe, der ganz besonderen Art. Wie innig das Band zwischen Brot-Connaisseur und der mindestens Mehrkorn- bis Vollkorn-Stulle tatsächlich ist, wird jenem schmerzlich bewusst, wenn er sich für einen längeren Zeitraum in eine Mono-Weissbrot-Kultur begibt. Und nun also das passende Buch zum Brot: Klapp-Stullen. Mit Max Fabers einzigartigem Kunstband/Kochbuch/Enzyklopädie bekommt die Stulle, nun endlich den Tribut gezollt, den sie verdient. Seite für Seite und Scheibe für Scheibe seziert und analysiert der gelernte Koch und Food-Stylist das Kulturgut gekonnt mithilfe eines Scanners. Die daraus entstandenen hochauflösenden Bilder rücken die Stulle nicht nur in ein neues Licht, sondern zeigen sie in all ihren Facetten, ihren zahlreichen Varianten und ihren eigentümlichen Verwandtschaftsverhältnissen wie etwa das Toast, Ciabatta oder Baguette. Dazu gibt es die wichtigsten Fakten vorab wie z.B., dass die 'Stullenpakete' im Mittelalter dazu dienten, dass die Jäger keine fettigen Hände beim Essen bekamen. Alles in allem stimmt es wohl, wie Faber wissend zu bedenken gibt: "Die Deutschen und ihr Brot, das ist eine ernste Sache" - aber das Buch beweist auch, dass die Deutschen sich durchaus manchmal auch selbst auf's Korn nehmen können.

It's definitely a match! Most likely when paper meets food you're holding a cookbook or a restaurant guide in your hands. That this delicious encounter can turn out differently without being less tasteful proves the F Magazine. The Food Documentary Magazine from Korea is definitely one of a kind. No wonder since this magazine originated from a long-time, inspiring friendship between Magazine B and Baemin. While Magazine B is famously known for telling multi-layered stories behind well-known brands as IKEA, Monocle, Vans, Muji among others Baemin is a critical mover and shaker in South Korean contemporary food culture "bringing good food to anyone and anywhere". Both together result in a fruitful collaboration which will certainly change the way we use and think about our day to day ingredients. The principle is more than simple: Each issue is dedicated to one essential ingredient, so far it is salt, chicken and cheese, entering the multifarious world, the various purposes and histories and the relationship between the people in different stages of the product we use at the end of the line. This nutritional encyclopedia serves as a perfect guidance through the most basic and essential food components featuring various interviews, an academic manual, a geographical overlook and a LAB coming with each Magazine. It's a feast for the eye and we suppose Bongjin Kim's (Baemin) plan worked out saying: "Personally, I'd like to publish a magazine that I would curate for my own personal collection." Believe us, we curate it with full pleasure!   Buy...
