50+ recipes from our readers, for our readers!

Well, this is going to be one of our most favourite issues to date! In The Readers Issue, we bring you recipes created by our readers, for our readers. How good is that?

In July of this year we released The Readers Issue competition. Readers and members of our community could enter their original recipes and have the chance of not only being published in this issue of the magazine but also winning some great prizes! 

We were inundated with recipes. So many delicious recipes to choose from, from all over the world. We just couldn't decide what to publish, so we enlisted the help of our recipe testing team and put each recipe through our thorough testing process. 

We wanted to say a very big congratulations to our three winners of the competition. These recipes were chosen for two reasons. Firstly, because they were a huge hit with the recipe testing team. We don't argue with our amazing testers. If they say it was good, it was GOOD! Secondly, because the recipes were easy to follow and required no tweaks from the recipe testing team. Now that is a real winning reason – often the magazine recipes we write go through several rounds of tweaking and testing! Congratulations to:

  1. Victoria Perreau for her amazing Orange Glazed Duck with Parsnip Puree and Potatoes recipe.
  2. Stacey Benn for her delicious Nanaimo Bars recipe.
  3. Terri Fallis for her delightful Peanut Choc Chip Biscuits recipe.
