We stock a lot of food magazines, there's been some fantastic new arrivals on the scene over the last few years, and now a strong contender joins the ranks. We've been waiting for Picnic since it was just an idea, so to see it in print is very exciting. It's exactly what we like to see, tasty tasty food and drink, the places it comes from, the tools that make it possible, and above all the people behind it.
Issue 3 of Picnic Magazine takes us to Los Angeles where we hop in the backyard pool with Eric Wareheim & Joel Burt of Las Jaras Wines, talk rice with brothers Nakul and Arjun Mahendro of Badmaash and discuss America's best bagels with Arielle Skye and Chris Moss of Courage Bagels.
We also catch up with Armen Martirosyan at his neighbourhood Armenian spot Mini Kabob, share rotisserie chicken with the founders of Kismet Rotisserie Sara and Sarah and join Dow Panyawong for a Thai-inspired feast in the pub back in London.

90's kids had ecstasy and acid house, the new generation has a curb-side samosa and an 8pm resy at their local Turkish restaurant.
