Mediterranean Memories

EDITION


Mediterranean Memories


Oh how we miss the Med! Let’s take ourselves back by conjuring up fond memories of al fresco dining in courtyard restaurants, exploring hidden coves and meandering through sleepy cobbled streets… This Mediterranean Memories Edition of our magazine is dedicated to celebrating all the wonderful things the region has to offer and looks forward to the time when we can head straight back there. From how to create a Mediterranean-themed evening for your family and friends and a special interview with Greek-Australian chef, Andrew Pippos, to the inspiration behind our all-new swim trunks collection – we hope you can almost feel the Mediterranean breeze and hear the gentle lapping of waves as you read.

REMEMBERING THE BYGONE DAYS OF THE GREEK-AUSTRALIAN CAFÉ CULTURE

Having grown up in the now virtually non-existent Greek Australian Cafe scene, Andrew Pippos set his debut novel, Lucky’s, in this world of two halves. Here, he talks about his family-filled childhood, favourite Mediterranean foods and the family secret that will form the centre of his next book.

MEDITERRANEAN MEMORIES
AT HOME

Whether or not you’ve been to the Mediterranean, it’s perfectly possible to create memories of this sun-drenched region in your own home. Read on to discover how to throw an alfresco event for friends and family, which will have everyone dreaming of their next escape to Italy, Greece or maybe Spain...

TASTES OF THE MEDITERRANEAN WITH CHEF GLENN LAURIE AND FAMILY

When summer arrives, pull the tables and chairs outside and get set for everyday alfresco dining. This year we want to give mealtimes the Mediterranean treatment, so we asked Melbourne-based chef Glenn Laurie for some inspiration. Here he shares a favorite family recipe that’s absolutely bursting with the flavours of Southern Italy.

LUKE AND PETER

When 47-year-old Luke Richards, from Melbourne, started wild swimming, he discovered a metaphor for recovery. After years of addiction, pain and attempted suicide, the ocean offered connection, wonder and more life than he imagined possible - including a friend, Peter, who’s own life he would go on to save.

TOMMY AND EOIN

When Tommy Hughes ran a marathon in the 1992 Olympics at the age of 32, he thought he had reached the pinnacle of his athletic career. But it wasn’t until he broke the father-son marathon world record with his son, Eoin, that he discovered the joy of being part of a team.

LOCKDOWN ADVENTURES

For Jamie Branch, 40, a curriculum manager and catering tutor, and his sons Zac, 9, and Elijah, 6, the global COVID19 pandemic and subsequent lockdown has been a wonderful opportunity to spend more time together enjoying climbing, skipping stones and long adventures in the woods.
