The April issue has just landed!

Long weekends are when family really comes to the forefront. It’s the time of comfort and communing over a shared meal with your people – whomever they may be. When memories are fortified by the scents and experience of good, easy food.


Make your long weekend unforgettable by sealing your meal with our decadent chocolate Easter fridge cake – made in under an hour. It is the shining star of our feature, It’s a meltdown, that introduces 8 brand new chocolate incarnations from our very own Abigail Donnelly. We’re talking malted waffles, macaroon-based butterscotch tart, and jammy éclairs. There’s no way to avoid surrendering to your cravings.

Abigail Donnelly and Hannah Lewry puts the “easy” back into Easter with a slew of laid back recipes for lazy lunches and brunches, including all the long-weekend favourites: slow-roast lamb, fish-and-chips and braaied hot cross buns. Your ultimate guide to the easiest and most delicious Easter weekend yet.
