Gather Journal is a recipe-driven food magazine dedicated to the many aspects of gathering: to dine, to drink, to harvest, and to cook.
The need to get away from it all, if only for the duration of a meal, feels more urgent than ever. With that in mind, for the summer 2018 Getaway edition of Gather we explored the many shapes that an escape might take letting food steer our course. We crafted menus that travel to a fantasy world of daydream desserts; delved into the idea of food as indulgence and self-care, each its own retreat; and used one of the most iconic fictional destinations (Oz) as muse. And because voyaging and eating are intertwined, you’ll also find a collection of meal travelogues from chefs and writers that take you everywhere from a remote Canadian forest to the streets of Jerusalem to a village in Burkina Faso.
