peddler journal by hetty mckinnon | issue 6 available now!
Peddler Journal is a recipe-driven magazine documenting the in-between moments of food – from the ingredients, to the making, the eating, the sharing, and all the small moments in-between.
Meal times are a mirror to our past, a symbol of our present and a gateway to our future. Behind every dish on our daily table, there are inherited histories, memories, ceremonies, rituals, cultures and traditions that are completely personal – and yet somehow universal.
Peddler explores these multi-cultures of food, venturing near and far, and into the homes and kitchens of everyday cooks for their most personal rendition of family recipes and stories.
Each issue is limited edition with a special dust jacket.
Issue #6 Immigrant | available now
In this soon to be released issue aptly titled Immigrant given the times, Hetty and friends explore what it means to be an immigrant, and the "assimilation dishes" that have gradually become family recipes, how we use food to adapt to our surroundings, and the role food plays in bridging disparate cultures.
Featuring stories on kindness, persistence, ingenuity, passion, adaptability, patience, tenderness, sentimentality, tenacity, resilience, resourcefulness, dedication, courage, independence, hope, optimism, and determination.
