Fare sets off for a different destination each issue – since launching in 2017 it has reported on the food cultures of Istanbul, Helsinki, Charleston and Seoul, and for this latest issue they switch their focus to Glasgow. The opening essay is by Sunday Times food critic (and Glaswegian) Marina O’Loughlin. Touching on, among other things, her family’s fish and chip shop, and the spiced vegetable pakoras she ate after her mother’s funeral, it’s about food, and place, and the memories and associations threaded through them. Featuring writer profiles, and restaurants, and an ode to a veggie haggis, its this balance between the geography of a city and the interior lives of the people moving through it that makes Fare so lovely.

Below are some of our favourite responses sent in from Stack readers around the world, and right at the bottom, you’ll find our July subscriber of the month…
