time & again

With the long lead time in the magazine industry – where we work way ahead of each issue’s month of publication – at F&HE we get to celebrate festive occasions like Easter, Christmas and New Year’s Eve twice… yes, come February, we’re munching on chocolate eggs and hatching our April issue; come October, we’re donning antlers and merrily carving out our December edition; and by the time November arrives, we’ve made (and already broken) New Year’s resolutions while popping out our January issue pages.

your newest fan!

Strolling through Builders Warehouse, F&HE's October 2017 cover beamed at me with a rose and lemon scented no bake cheesecake stacked with strawberries (page 10); it was nothing short of a delectable sight! Having never bought this magazine before, I was filled with pure elation, as I breezed through the pages while waiting in the queue at the tills. Upon closer inspection at home, I was delighted by the sensational culinary haven of exquisite, affordable, practical, modern, simple and comprehensive recipes, ideas around the home and sound nutritional information to suit every need and preference. Every page had me salivating and overcome with excitement to get into the kitchen. The lemon and blackcurrant stripe cake (page 88) in the cookbook extract from Sweet by Yotam Ottolenghi and Helen Goh has…
