After 17 years and countless recipes, household name, Donna Hay has released her 100th (and final) magazine issue. Inside, the celebrity chef shares the dishes that have been her absolute favourites throughout her career, as well as a selection of both simple and picture-perfect creations that can be enjoyed by everyone.
“I’m so proud to hit the milestone of 100 issues!” says Donna. “It’s definitely been a crazy, exciting ride, and it’s been my privilege to work alongside many talented people to create such beautiful food content over the past 17 years. But, it’s time for change and I’m excited about all the new opportunities for my brand. This issue gives a sneak peek into what has inspired me over the years, and all the ways my team and I have endeavoured to surprise and delight our readers.”
To mark this special occasion, we’ve managed to get our hands on a couple of cheeky recipes extracts straight from the pages, we promise you’ll love!
