FARE magazine Issue 1: Istanbul

FARE is a new magazine exploring the heart of a city culture through food, community and history.

Fare introduces its readers to a single city and lets its locals do the talking: taking you down backstreets and through forgotten histories, exploring neighbourhoods and local institutions, and doing more than just taste the food on offer. Fare connects armchair travelers with immersive and nuanced stories from cities around the world, and serves as a kind of roadmap for those who are ready to make the actual trip to see things for themselves

Fare boldly begins in Istanbul, a stunning metropolis of melancholic beauty; uniquely poised across two continents, it was imperial capital to three sprawling empires, and thus a wholly unique mix of cultures and in uences which spanned from Eastern Europe, into North Africa and the Middle East. Istanbul wears its past on

its sleeve, and continues to change amidst a challenging political climate. The city’s food culture is a mirror into its many pasts and the peoples who’ve called it home—not just now, but over the last two millennia.
