Issue #3 Bodies
Counter Magazine is independently produced in Sydney and printed in Melbourne twice a year.
It was founded in 2019 by celebrated chef Daniel Johnston, editor/researcher Kate Cox, and opera language coach Tanja Binggeli. The team has grown to include designer Sally Parsons and journalist Eden Rose Faithfull. The spirit of the magazine and the approach to food journalism is summarised by the word counter: as a verb it indicates a reaction to something that moves in an opposing direction, as a noun it is a platform where we serve, eat and enjoy food. ‘Bodies’ is a timely theme given the COVID-19 period in which we are living, and our hyper awareness of bodies — their vulnerability, the ways in which they can be restricted and their state of health.
