What's inside the August 2022 issue of Food&Wine Magazine

Our new issue will be free with the Business Post this Sunday, August 7 - find out what's inside here.


The new issue of Food&Wine Magazine will be available free with the Business Post this Sunday, August 7, and it is jam-packed with gorgeous features for you to enjoy this month.

Mark your calendars: this Sunday, the August issue of Food&Wine Magazine will be free with the Business Post and available to read online. We've spent the last month putting our heads together to try create the best possible issue for you to enjoy and this edition is full of delicious recipes, drinks recommendations and more.

On the cover this month, we have John Relihan's incredible dry-aged beef short rib with sticky stout glaze and romesco sauce. Relihan has taken on a new role as executive chef with Pitt Bros, the barbecue spot on South Great George's, and has told us all about his big plans for the restaurant; plus he has shared recipes for grilled mackerel and beer can chicken. 

Also in recipes, Domini Kemp has dishes that are perfect to impress the difficult guest in your life. Invited over picky in-laws or a judgy friend? These recipes have you covered and will ensure a smooth dining experience. We're particularly fond of her summery strawberry tart, but these dishes are definite winners.

Elsewhere in the magazine, Elaine Prendeville has all your interiors needs covered with her monthly recommendations. This month, you can find Aishling Moore of Goldie in Cork's favourite kitchen tool, kitchen picks to brighten your surrounds and more. 

In drinks, Oisin Davis chats with beer sommelier Judith Boyle to discuss beer and whiskey pairings, while Dean Carroll looks at The White Hag's summer offerings. Over in wine, Mick O'Connell explains why the Loire might just be the region to satisfy all your wine needs this month.

Take a trip to Istanbul in travel this month with Dean Carroll. Turkey is set to receive its first Michelin Guide soon, so Carroll heads to the capital to immerse himself in its food culture, finding that there is much more to Istanbul than meets the eye. 

Ahead of next week's Big Grill Festival, Alex Meehan meets Kimberly Plafke of The Meat Hook in Brooklyn, New York to chat all things inclusivity, sustainability and more. In business, Jordan Mooney chats with Mag Kirwan of Goatsbridge Trout, the last outpost of freshwater aquaculture in the Republic of Ireland, to find out what makes her trout farm so special. 

Rounding out this new issue, our Secret Restaurateur weighs up the pros and cons of going cashless. Has the Covid-19 pandemic accelerated our move towards less notes and coins? Find out what our insider thinks in this weekend's magazine.
