An Honest Kitchen: Winter & a Spring/Summer gift voucher
Posted by kathryn in An Honest Kitchen
Two An Honest Kitchen announcements today:
Re-release of Winter
When Lucy and I released the winter edition of An Honest Kitchen for those of you over the other side of the world, it was the height of summer. Talking soups, roasting lamb cutlets and comforting desserts was just not on your agenda.
Therefore today we are re-releasing the winter edition of An Honest Kitchen.
This new version has been revised for Northern hemisphere readers.
While the core material and approach remains the same, we’ve internationalised the terminology, measurements and ingredients. So no more racking your brains over what “silverbeet” is, or doing complicated calculations to work out the fahrenheit equivalent of 200°C.
Free extract from Winter available
And if you’re not sure whether An Honest Kitchen is for you, we’re also providing an extract from the Winter edition, which you can download for free – click here.
The winter magazine costs A$19.95 and you can purchase it through Paypal, by clicking on the Buy Now button below.
Gift vouchers for Spring/Summer
Back in November we announced the plan to publish a combined Spring/Summer edition.
We can now confirm this will be released in the new year, on 26 January. This bumper volume includes full spring and summer editions – so you get all the warm weather food in one magazine.
We also think it would make a great Christmas present. So we’ve put together a pre-release offer. Up until Christmas eve you will be able to buy a Gift Voucher for the Spring/Summer edition of An Honest Kitchen.
Simply purchase a copy through PayPal and you’ll be sent a Gift Voucher by email. You can forward this on, or print it out and give to your friend or family member in person. Then on 26 January your gift recipient will be one of the first people to receive a copy of the Spring/Summer An Honest Kitchen.
Free extract from Spring/Summer available
If you’re not sure, then we also have an extract of the Spring/Summer edition which you can download for free from here.
The combined Spring/Summer edition is currently available for A$24.95. Given the normal price is A$19.95 per issue, this is a saving of A$14.95 – quite a bargain.

What is An Honest Kitchen?
An Honest Kitchen is an e-Magazine published by Lucy of Nourish Me and myself. We launched with our first edition in July of this year. The magazine concentrates on seasonal food, that tastes delicious and is simply prepared:
Food that’s balanced and made up of ingredients which improve your health, served in realistic portions. Along the way we’ve tried to simplify, cut back on processes, find ways of making the cooking easier and show the food as it really is. Honest food.
Who should buy An Honest Kitchen?
- People who want to produce a healthy meal at the end of the day, but don’t want to spend hours fussing in the kitchen.
- New cooks who want to make simple, great tasting meals.
- Busy, time-poor people
- People who want to eat more healthy foods, but just don’t know how to do it.
About the cost
We realise An Honest Kitchen is more expensive than most magazines. In fact it’s more expensive than many e-Publications sold online.
However, being honest with you, we think it’s worth it.
Firstly, unlike many magazines An Honest Kitchen is advert free. There are no promotions or advertorials; and we don’t take any payments for including products or ingredients. Instead, An Honest Kitchen is 100% independent content – unclouded by advertisers and promoters.
The recipes are put together by myself, a qualified Nutritionist. They are nutritionally balanced and include a wide variety of ingredients. The recipes show ways of prepping vegetables that taste good and how to make the food you eat better for you.
In our recipes we use seasonal ingredients. We know many publications promise seasonal eating. However when you check, the recipes include one or two ingredients which are in season, combined with a whole lot that aren’t. So in the winter An Honest Kitchen you won’t find any tomatoes, asparagus or zucchini. While spring is a pumpkin, sweet potato and parsnip free zone.
It’s a beautiful publication. Lucy is a fantastic photographer, who’s eye for food, light and the season means each issue is a thing of great beauty.
Each publication takes a lot of time to complete. This is not something we cobble together in a few days, instead it’s a lengthy process where recipes are written and tested at least twice by me; Lucy then re-tests each recipe while she photographs them. We also send the document out to friends and colleagues for further comment and testing. This process takes a long time and a lot of hours from Lucy and I, which is reflected in the cost of the publication.
But we think this process is important, because we want the recipes to work, to be simple, and to produce a glorious meal at the end. Something that is healthy, but doesn’t taste too healthy.
Which is why An Honest Kitchen does cost more than many magazines and why we think it’s worth every cent.
