Here's a preview of the upcoming sixth issue of Fool Magazine, the cult food and culture publication from co-editors-in-chief Per-Anders and Lotta Jörgensen. P-A Jörgensen tells Eater that the "fusion" theme is "a subject we've been thinking about for quite some time. We felt like very few come out and say, 'Yeah, I do fusion.' It's kind of a dirty word." The magazine playfully refers to it as "the F***** word."
The issue's thesis: "Everything really is fusion, more or less," Jörgensen says. "Nothing's really pure... everything's inspired by something." To that end, subjects covered in the fusion issue vary widely. There's an in-depth profile of Bar Tartine chefs Cortney Burns and Nick Balla, which is complete with profiles of their staff. "They all come from different places, and that is fusion to us," explains Jörgensen. Cover chef Iñaki Aizpitarte (Le Chateaubriand) stars in a fashion-inspired spread, there's a profile of "the godfather of fusion" Peter Gordon, olive oil expert Cristina Stribacu demonstrates her "perfect nose," and there's an investigation into a "new generation of Japanese chefs."
The magazines are hitting shelves now, so do keep an eye out for it. Below, a fun teaser for the issue:
