Weekend Reading... Port


From the moment Port first hit the shelves with its debut issue back in March of last year, the self-styled "intelligent magazine for men" has filled a long neglected gap in the somewhat confused, unoriginal and uninspiring market. It has since blossomed in to the publication that I long to read each quarter. The sixth issue is a feast for the the eyes, mind, wardrobe and belly. It is not surprising to hear (one of) its accomplished creative director Matt Willey describe it as "the best issue of any magazine I've ever been involved in." Guest edited by Fergus Henderson (founder of the St. John restaurants in London and great exponent of the nose to tail eating philosophy), the issue is a mouth watering banquet of delights. The table almost buckles under the editorial weight of the generous servings. With contributions from Mario Batali and Bloomfield, the beauty found beneath the waves thanks to stunning photography by Giles Revell, Nigella Lawson shot by Juergen Teller, David Chang on fermentation and a light lunch of sartorial table ware thanks to styling by David St. John-James. As my Dad always says when we're sat around the table, 'eat up!"
