Follow your food: banana

Bananas are one of the most popular fruits around, but we find out what goes on before they’re sold in stores

Have you ever stopped to think of the life your produce has led before you pick it up from the supermarket shelf and place it in your basket? It’s easy to forget how far some products have travelled to finally end up in our homes – and not to mention the time, effort and man-power required to grow and transport them. The banana is no exception; commonly grown in tropical climates within 30 degrees either side of the equator – in countries which have an average temperature of 27°C/80°F – these yellow fruits have covered many miles before they reach our doorsteps.

About PlantBased

Summer is in full swing, which means it’s time to take advantage of the fresh fruit and veg which fills our supermarket shelves – and if we’re lucky – our gardens, too. This month, we’ve included a wide range of dishes to help put your produce to good use, by including recipes for fresh salads (p24), delicious fruit tarts (p41) and authentic Asian dishes (p71). As August gifts us with long, warm evenings, it’s the perfect time to throw a garden party – but why not add a fun, Mexican twist? On page 28, we share our tips on how to throw a successful fiesta, followed by five recipes that will leave your guests wanting more. However nice the summer sun is, it can be easy to forget how important it is to protect our skin. Turn to page 76 to find Dr Diccardo Di Cuffa’s advice on how to stay safe in the sun. Later in the mag, we head to Cape Town to explore the plant-based options the city has to offer, while recommending a host of restaurants you must try when visiting the cape. We also share a veganised recipe of the Bobotie – a classic South African dish, originally made with meat – let us know what you think of it. Enjoy the issue.
