Food by National Geographic Traveller UK

LONDON (3 March): Food by National Geographic Traveller (UK) is embracing new flavours this Spring with a celebration of spice.

The latest edition of this special-issue series takes readers around the world via seven spices — from delicate vanilla pods grown on the island nation of São Tomé and Príncipe to the brick-red soups and stews infused with paprika found in the restaurants of Budapest

Glen Mutel, editor of Food by National Geographic Traveller, said: “Spices have always connected the world. Whereas once they were one of the major driving forces behind vast trade routes, today they’re able to transport us to the kitchens of faraway places.

“If winter is all about comfort foods, then spring is the time to reanimate both our culinary curiosity and sense of discovery — and nothing symbolises this better than spices. In this issue, we’re offering an insight into seven of our favourite seeds, fruits, roots and barks — whether it’s Ching-He Huang’s favourite Sichuan pepper recipe or Anjum Anand’s love for green cardamom.”

Also in this issue, we visit the mountain huts serving up sumptuous dishes in Austria’s Tyrol region; break bread with a pair of celebrated bakers in Tallinn, Estonia; and explore the distinctly spicy cuisine of Durban, South Africa. There’s all this, plus the culinary highlights of Seoul, the Bahamas and the 11th arrondissement of Paris.

In addition, expect the usual mix of thought-provoking features and easy-to-follow recipes from world-renowned contributors.
