A Gourmand is a person who takes pleasure and interest in food of all kinds. The Gourmand is a new food and culture journal that acknowledges these people and provides for them, with inspirational words, images and ideas around the humble and universal subject of food.

“Based in London, The Gourmand is inspired not only by a true passion for food and dining but by the exciting influx of new restaurants, bars, cafe’s, stalls and ingredients that are increasingly available to us. The Gourmand was born as a means to share this exciting cultural shift and to celebrate food as a catalyst for creativity.

The Gourmand is the culmination of a journey which began with a dinner at our home with friends, many of whom have contributed to this first issue.As we dined we discussed our initial ideas for editorial, illustration and photography projects and it has been a pleasure to watch these ideas form in to the journal you are about to read. The creation of The Gourmand is a testament to the communicative power of food, and its inherent relationship with the arts.”

Issue 00 looks to be an interesting and entertaining read, with features on all manner of food-related topics. Check out the video teaser below.
