Editor's Note

If meat’s on your menu this month, you’ll love our feature on meatballs – little nuggets of comfort food that can be found all over the world in sauces, soups and salads. From Spain’s beef meatballs in a spiced tomato sauce to Vietnam’s famous pork meatball salad (with caramel cooked right in!), there’s a meatball to suit every taste.

 

Where food comes from and how it’s treated along the way is a topic that’s receiving an increasing amount of airtime these days. For many of us, shopping at a farmers’ market is the best we can do, but Whole Larder Love’s Rohan Anderson really took matters into his own hands a few years ago when he decided to take up ethical hunting. “An ethical hunter?” he asks. “Sounds like an oxymoron, I know. Truth be told, I started to question the ethical values and unsustainable nature of factory-farmed poultry and pork.” Read more about Rohan’s hunting trip with Ross O’Meara (of Gourmet Farmer), along with some mouth-watering recipes for venison and hare.

 

Sweet temptations are much-loved in the Feast office and, in this issue, we have a bejewelled pomegranate cake from Rachel Khoo, whose new show Kitchen Notebook: Cosmopolitan Cook airs from April 2 on SBS ONE on Thursday nights at 7.30pm, as well as six sticky syrup recipes from around the world. 

 

Happy feasting.
