What’s inside the October 2022 issue of Food&Wine Magazine

This month our cover story features Rod and Julie Calder-Potts of Highbank Orchards in Kilkenny, who discuss the highs and lows of running Europe’s only fully organic orchard and apple-based business. They reveal why they finally decided to take the plunge into becoming an entirely organic business and the challenges the move presented.

In spirits, Oisin Davis talks to Justin Green of Ballyhovan House about autumn-inspired spirits as well as the fruition of his new business venture into the glorious world of gin.

Rounding out our issue, for this month’s Secret Restaurateur column, our industry insider deliberates the increasing struggles of running a restaurant and the harsh reality many restaurant owners have and continue to face.

Last but certainly not least, the highlight of our culinary calendar is The Food&Wine Restaurant of the Year awards in association with Rémy Martin. Taking place in the Round Room at Dublin’s Mansion House it’s a celebration of the exceptional talent, resilience and determination of the Irish food and drinks sector.

Travel Guide: The Food & Sights In Valencia, Spain

Our Valencia travel guide! Never before has a city taken me quite like Valencia did. A weekend break to this Spanish gem inspired me to return just two weeks later to film an episode in Valencia.

Spain has a lot of great cities but there’s something about Valencia that just makes me…happy. The weather maybe? Or perhaps the food? Or the friendly people? Most likely it’s that elusive combination of all three. Valencia is one of those cities that has something to offer all year round.

The port city of Valencia lies on Spain’s southeastern coast, where the Turia River meets the Mediterranean Sea. It’s known for its City of Arts and Sciences, with futuristic structures including a planetarium, an oceanarium and an interactive museum. Valencia also has several beaches, including some within nearby Albufera Park, a wetlands reserve with a lake and walking trails.

Food & Wine Restaurant of the Year 2022: Locust, Nashville

Locust in Nashville is the most perfect restaurant for our time.

Locust is open three days a week, for five and a half hours a day. Two hours are dedicated to lunch; the remaining time is for dinner service. On average, there are about six dishes on the menu, plus the occasional special (or three). The wine list is just as short. It’s hard to define what exactly the restaurant is, but as of right now, the food mostly has a Japanese bent. And on any given night, there might be a heavy metal soundtrack blasting from the open kitchen, with a few chefs head-banging away as they prepare your next dish. Locust is fully, uncompromisingly, and unapologetically itself—which is exactly what makes it so playful and brilliant.

Plant-Based Meat: Why It Hasn’t Gone Mainstream

As people’s eating habits change and environmental concerns grow, plant-based protein used as a meat substitute has gained popularity. However, some barriers are preventing it from becoming truly mainstream. Watch what needs to be done to truly realize a future with less meat.

World Hunger: Is Biofuel Feeding A Food Crisis?

The UN’s World Food Programme has described 2022 as “a year of unprecedented hunger”, with millions of people in dozens of countries facing famine. At the same time, significant amounts of farmland are being used to produce so-called biofuels. But could a global food crisis change that?

Biofuels are liquid fuels produced from renewable biological sources, including plants and algae. Biofuels offer a solution to one of the challenges of solar, wind, and other alternative energy sources. These energy sources have incredible potential to reduce our dependence on fossil fuels and yield environmental and economic benefits. But many of these sources have a limitation: they can’t replace liquid fuels such as jet fuel, gasoline, and diesel fuel that are critical to our transportation needs. That’s where biofuels could help.

Fermentation: The Future Animal-Free Meat Source?

Silicon Valley venture capital is feeding a budding business in fermented, animal-free proteins, creating bacon, turkey and egg white from yeasts and fungus. San Francisco correspondent Dave Lee considers its potential over a few slices of fungus salami.

Views: History Of New York’s Fulton Fish Market

The Fulton Fish Market in New York is celebrating its 200th anniversary this year. Jeff Glor goes inside and takes a look at the market’s history.

Opened in 1822, New York City’s Fulton Fish Market is one of the oldest fish markets in the United States. Well before the Brooklyn Bridge was even built, the market at South Street Seaport thrived with fishing boats and fishmongers bartering and bantering over stalls heaving with fresh fish. Each night the colorful market would come to life with its cast of characters, eager chefs and curious tourists, all mingling over bushels of oysters, crates of lobsters and a kaleidoscope of sea creatures from near and far. Perhaps more than any other institution, the Fulton Fish Market captured the spirit and tradition of old New York.

Profile: Bryce Shuman’s ‘Wood-Fired Flavors’

“I found my way to James Beard-nominated chef Bryce Shuman (and his succulent pork ribs) during the summer of 2020 when he was offering a barbecue rib delivery service in Brooklyn and Manhattan out of the back of his Subaru. The food, the delivery, the entire presentation was flawless, ingenious—beautiful to the eye and supremely mouth-watering.” — Chris Ohlson (Director) Read more on NOWNESS
