The 2022 magazine is a collection of stories and recipes that center on joy. In this third edition, we’re exploring how people are finding or creating moments of joy at home, through food, independently, and with others. After two difficult years in a pandemic, experiencing profound social unrest and widespread instability, we knew it was time for all of us to reclaim our joy. So we asked chefs from around the U.S. to discuss their relationship with joy and share the recipes that make them the happiest to cook and eat. In putting together Volume Three, we hoped this edition would capture feelings of happiness, peace, and triumph, and ultimately, commemorate how these feelings translate to the food we make and the way we relate to those around us. We hope this edition will inspire you to prioritize the people, moments, and meals that bring you the most joy.
