Founded in February 2015, The Gannet is an online magazine that explores people’s lives through the food they cook and eat. We are based in London but travel widely, seeking out food obsessives in Paris, Sweden, New Orleans, Ireland and Mexico City – among many other places. We report our findings on this website and in our print magazine Fork in the Road, which launched in September 2016.
Mostly we visit people at home and ask them to cook us a favourite dish. Sometimes our hosts are chefs, food writers or producers, but we’ve also interviewed architects, artists and children’s authors – the only requirement is a lively interest in food. These encounters can last anywhere between two and 12 hours (our record is 14.5 – thanks Erika) and cover everything from childhood memories to food aversions to the composition of a perfect breakfast.
