This month we muse on the power of our grandmothers’ cooking as we step into the kitchen of Athens-based writer Anastasia Miari. We travel to the Caucuses to find out how local traditions are helping Georgian hospitality to flourish, learn about the future of textiles and take a deep dive into the icy, innovative history of Sicily’s granita.
