MiNDFOOD turns 14! Take a look inside the special April birthday issue
Join us as we celebrate 14 years of #SmartThinking with our special MiNDFOOD birthday issue!

“Since launching, our hashtag ‘SmartThinking’ has never changed, because our core belief and MiNDFOOD DNA hasn’t changed,” writes Editor-in-Chief Michael McHugh. “Giving someone a range of thought– that was my goal. If someone left thinking about what was discussed, what they read, what visual elements they enjoyed; and that in time promoted some kind of smart thinking, then MiNDFOOD was well and truly adding to the conversation and doing its job.”

Kicking off the birthday celebrations this April, we sit down with cover star and Hollywood icon Anne Hathaway to hear about her new role in a true-life Silicon Valley tale, as well as her down-to-earth life behind the scenes. Elsewhere in community, we showcase a fascinating Austrian café concept that offers cooking inspiration, while making a powerful political statement about old-age poverty and loneliness.

In this month’s health edition, we weigh up the latest evidence surrounding face masks, examine how manipulative behaviours play out in the modern world, argue the benefits of hedonism and look at ways to cultivate personal connections through cooking.

In beauty, we celebrate the return of rose scents, test out the best new eye treatments, showcase everyday hairstyles with smooth volume and shiny locks, and dive into the science-backed benefits of moisturisers.

Head to our home section and discover statement sofas, Egyptian-inspired textiles, a joyful new tableware collaboration with Yotam Ottolenghi, and an airy and harmonious city apartment where furniture doubles as works of art.

This month in travel, we bring you our exciting cruise special, inspiring you to book that trip of a lifetime. Marvel at the pristine splendour of Norway, take an unforgettable journey along the Mexican Riviera, see the best of Europe and cruise the Nile and mighty Mississippi.

Our food and drink section embraces the season of celebration, with stunning cakes and standout wine selections. We also showcase melt-in-your-mouth pork recipes and the mighty mushroom with soups, burgers, stir fries and more.

Plus, we’ve got loads of puzzles, crosswords and prizes to keep you entertained.
