It's easy to get mesmerized by a detailed close up. The devastating deliciousness of being able to see every little crack, crease and droplet of moisture in a great photograph is a luxury our generation's HD capabilities can afford us. We are, of course, talking about food photography. Foodies, it's time to graduate from the dregs of foodporndaily.com.
Gather Journal is a new bi-annual print publication dedicated to showcasing the aesthetic quality of fresh, top quality foods. Fascinated by the act of eating itself and the way that act brings people together, Michele Outland and Fiorella Valdesolo created Gather as an ode to all things attractive and edible. With an emphasis on markedly beautiful photography, timeless recipes, and classic and whole ingredients, it's a one stop resource for chefs and amateur connoisseurs alike. Divided much like a meal itself into amuse bouches, starters, mains and desserts, the pages are filled with things to cook, informed and comedic writing, and snaps of everything you want in your mouth. Gather is stocked by some of our favorite retailers and restaurants like Mohawk General Store, Project No. 8, Pilgrim Surf and Supply, and Marlowe and Sons. Pick up the first issue today to let your eyes feast and your mouth water.
