Outspoken food writer and broadcaster William Sitwell was the obvious choice as guest editor of our annual food-themed issue. As well as writing several bestselling books on the subject, hosting monthly supper clubs and running the ‘world’s smallest wine shop’, William is a regular judge on BBC’s MasterChef. He famously made headlines in 2018 when as editor of Waitrose’s multi-award-winning Food magazine he resigned over ill-judged remarks about ‘killing vegans’. Since then, he has been appointed as restaurant critic for The Telegraph. A keen shot and inexperienced-but-enthusiastic fisherman, William is keen to promote the benefits of eating game to the public. This issue is packed with editorial features that you’ll devour including James Percy’s musings on eating in the field, recipes from new London restaurant Fallow, a report from the world’s best worst shoot at Weston Hall, and a look at Perazzi’s new shotgun that’s been designed especially for British shooters. We also round-up five of the best private chefs to elevate your next shoot lunch. bon appétit!
