Sneak Peek: Inside Fool Magazine's Fifth Issue

The issue's theme is 'religion' and that means everything from a Mugaritz communion wafer to exploring the Australian Outback.

Here's a preview of the upcoming fifth issue of Fool Magazine, the cult food and culture magazine from co-editors in chief Per-Anders and Lotta Jörgensen. The fifth issue's theme is "Religion." P-A Jörgensen tells Eater "It is not only in the normal sense that you would think, we do it our way, the 'foolish' way."

Here are some examples: Oliver Strand writing about service, which Jörgensen says "can be almost a religion," Fuchsia Dunlop on gluttony, the Mugaritz team reinterpreting the communion wafer, Sean Brock on moonshine, and an exploration of lethal dosages of familiar foods. There's also a profile of legendary French chef Paul Bocuse called "The Original Food God" and an interview with the often-controversial Joe Beef chef David McMillan. Other features include an in-depth exploration of Singapore chef Andre Chiang's creative process and a look at cod fishing with Jeremy Charles and Jeremy Bonia of Raymonds in St. John's, Newfoundland. As always, the magazine has plenty of gorgeous photography and stunning illustrations.

The cover chef is Scotland-born Australian chef Jock Zonfrillo (Orana, Adelaide), who Jörgensen describes as an "Outback evangelist" that is "trying to find a new Australian cuisine." He's spent time with over 250 indigenous communities, and the feature written by Australian crime writer Zane Lovitt finds Zonfrillo learning about native, wild Australian ingredients in the Outback. While there's no official release date, Lotta Jörgensen says American buyers can expect to see the magazine on shelves sometime between October 24th —27th. In the meantime, have a look above.
