Diner Journal, Issue 32: Dear Island

Diner Journal

Diner Journal #32 is a meditation on one cook’s summer journey, from the clanging underground kitchens of Manhattan to a camp kitchen on an island in upstate New York. Photographs by Julia Gillard investigate the quiet of the island as well as the liveliness of cooking. Millicent Souris writes and cooks what the island wants. Essays and recipes explore what to do with the whole vegetable, how to cook for the day, how to honor what you made the day before, how to perfectly prepare a steak, and exude an affection not just for the practice of island living, but a wistful longing for a summer that might never end.
