Colournary is a biannual print magazine that celebrates and amplifies the voices of First Nations, Black and People of Colour through the lens of food and culture.
The theme of Issue Two is Water. Water flows through us and consumes us just as we consume it. It binds us together through oceans and waterways, allows us to migrate over it, nourishes us with food and drink, poses a threat with climate change, overfishing and drilling and fights against us with natural disasters. Water is a symbol of life. It is spiritual or sacred to many and in this issue Gunditjmara woman Niyoka Bundle of Pawa Catering talks to Melissa Woodley about her familial connection to water; Neha Kale explores the significance of the oyster; Heli Yoon shines light on Herculean Korean fisherwomen; six exceptional chefs show off their water-inspired recipes (think a fish and taro soup by Tony Tan and a Negombo-style mud crab curry, pol sambol and pol roti by Gayan Pieris); and the magazine is bursting at the seams with beautiful photos and illustrations. Our second issue is a celebration of First Nations, Black and People of Colour and their connection to water, however they interpret it.
