Inside the issue: MiNDFOOD October 2021
This month, we're championing the Food Waste Warriors who are tackling the climate crisis with inventive solutions.

OzHarvest founder Ronni Kahn graces the cover of our October issue. The food philanthropist doesn’t just rescue food for people in need, she inspires.

“You get more than you could ever imagine by giving, and it’s way more precious,” she tells MiNDFOOD.

Continuing the food waste conversation, we explore how global pioneers are tackling this climate issue with ingenuity. We also hear from the Afghan doctor who has dedicated her life to empowering women in her home country, and share the unsung story of Plunket’s founding Maori midwives.

In health, we look at how research into long COVID could help those with chronic fatigue, debate the issues with cancel culture and dive into the reasons behind why we lie.

Our beauty editor looks at perfume inspired by art, nourishing techniques for your nails, new tools for at-home beauty treatments and skincare regimens for the whole body.

Head to home for a spring makeover using natural linens, and get a tour inside a modern ‘Japandi’ abode.

Our Cruise Special is back this October, rounding up the new itineraries and hot destinations to book in 2022-2023. We explore Fiordland National Park on a Heritage voyage, celebrate Holland America’s 75th anniversary of its flagship Alaska cruise, and hear about Viking’s stylish new ships and exciting destinations. We also go island hopping with Paul Gaugin Cruises and hear about Hurtigruten’s big-ticket journeys to Norway, Africa and the Galapagos Islands.

In food, we showcase in season pea and avocado dishes, tea and vinegar smoked trout, the most tender lamb recipes and moreish baking with almonds. In drink, we’ve got top tipples, Halloween drinks, the best spring additions for your cellar and explore the natural beauty and wineries of Nelson.

Plus, we’ve got plenty of competitions, puzzles and prizes to keep your brain active.
