JIGNESH JHAVERI Photographer; The Ultimate Taste Test; p82 A: Puglia. The region produces half of Italy’s olive oil and is famous for its pasta and breads. @jj2910 ROSHNI BAJAJ SANGHVI Writer; P for Pumpkin; p96 A: On a very cold afternoon in December 2019, I had my first meal in Ortigia—a bowl of warm casarecce with pistachio pesto, and a glass of crisp, white house wine—for under 10 euros. Italy was the last country I visited before the pandemic and where I want to travel to first. @roshnibajaj KRUTIKA BEHRAWALA Writer; A Vegetarian’s Guide to Goa; p186 A: Uzbekistan—the heart of the Silk Road—to understand the culinary influences and enjoy a feast of plov, manti, tandoor breads and kebabs, with a side of interesting stories and cultural deep-dives at a local’s home. @krutika.b CHANDRAHAS CHOUDHURY Writer; Love on Legs in Kumaon; p150 A: To…

(So much so that I posted a recipe for Sindhi seyal bread myself—it was a solitary attempt, much like my Pilates class.) I was amazed by the versatility of a pumpkin, captivated by Saee Koranne-Khandekar’s authentic Maharashtrian cuisine, and wondered how many different ways I could spin Thomas Zacharias’s Kerala thoran recipes. I became addicted to Padma Lakshmi’s IG videos, but…

This was the latest tragedy in a year already marked by the pandemic and a collapsed economy. “As a community, we felt like we’d all been hit together,” says designer Tatiana Fayad, co-founder of the high-fashion women’s brand Vanina (vanina.me), whose store in the bohemian enclave of Gemmayzeh was heavily damaged. The network of designers, many of whom have been friendly for years, have always tried to bolster one another in the absence of more formal support, says Fayad. “We don’t have organisations that help us or teach us how to sell abroad—so we learn…
