Editor's Note

Welcome to the first issue of Feast - the new food magazine that's about so much more than just food. Like the experience on SBS, Feast is about authenticity, exploration and passion. We love to cook, travel and share a meal with our family and friends, but most of all, we want to discover the stories behind the food: the provenance of recipes; the unique ingredients and cooking styles of cuisines; how specific food is traditionally served; and the people who create, eat and enjoy these dishes.
