A Taster's Journey is a newsletter on food, wine and travel. After 15 years of studying, tasting, teaching, and selling wine, I created this newsletter to not only share my passion about wine, but of food and travel as well. Each month I hope to share wines that I am drinking, food that is in season, restaurants that I have enjoyed, and places I have traveled. Enjoy!"

The styling of the magazine is so fresh and inviting, and it is jam packed with excellent recipes and wonderful visuals. Website is donnahaymagazine.com.au.
  • Pomegranates were noted for their medicinal qualities dating back hundreds of years. Today POM makes a line of pomegranate juices (some blended with other fruits) that are delicious and filled with antioxidants. Available at most supermarkets.
