Gather Journal is a recipe-driven food magazine dedicated to the many aspects of gathering: to dine, to drink, to harvest, and to cook.
In this, the “Rough Cut” issue, our third edition of Gather Journal, we focus our attention on film, specifically, summer movies. We pay homage to the oeuvres of two directors admired for their distinctive, albeit very different, visual approaches; we recall memories of summer camp food, both personal and fictional; we re-imagine famous cinematic food scenes; and we laud the everlasting power of the movie soundtrack. In movie-speak a rough cut is not the final product we see on screen, and we chose those words as the beacon for the issue because neither is this a comprehensive or authoritative survey of film. Just a snapshot—a rough cut—of the movies that have humored us and turned us on, made us squeeze our eyes shut in terror and keep them wide open in curious anticipation, filled us with joy and sadness. And the recipes created to evoke them are, like those films, meant to be something you return to again and again.
