Inside the issue: MiNDFOOD NZ March 2022
This month, we bring you our annual future beauty special, look at ways to tackle burnout, explore innovations in winemaking, and much more. 

For those feeling the pandemic fatigue, this issue, we delve into physical and mental practices to look after your wellbeing. “We are all feeling below par some days,” writes Editor-in-Chief Michael McHugh. “Try and get out for a walk within nature… it’s the smallest of things that at this time can have the biggest impact.”

New Zealand acting legend Jennifer Ward-Lealand graces the cover, ahead of her return to the stage directing ATC’s Grand Horizons. We also showcase other pioneering female Kiwi directors, hear one reader’s story of finding ‘Mrs Right’, shine a light on the rise in female homelessness and showcase the grand opening of Aotearoa’s first public Māori gallery dedicated solely to Māori creatives.

In health, we look at perimenopause and how to prepare the mind and body for this change, delve into the latest research on the mind-body connection and discuss the problems and solutions around burnout.

This month is our future beauty special where we bring you expert trends and innovation in hair, beauty and skincare – from eco-conscious refillable products and high-tech treatment, to a renewed emphasis on bodycare and innovative fragrances.

In travel, we head to the stunning locations from Jane Campion’s latest movie, explore new public art trails and uncover a vast natural paradise in Australia’s Kalbarri National Park.

Learn how to create your dream outdoor space in our home section, and take a tour inside a 142-year-old heritage cottage with a unique charm.

This month’s food section brings you tasty corn ribs, delicious bread creations and the ultimate breakfast and brunch recipes to start your day.

Flick to drink to hear about Hawke’s Bay’s best chardonnays, a Māori winemaker with a unique label and the sustainable wine revolution in Champagne.
