In Spring 2015, we released our very first printed magazine of Life & Thyme. After that, we released five more. It was an exciting experiment and a thrill to see our stories in print. Even though we adored print, we have since moved on with digital content and film production. Our online shop remained open but will now come to an end. From now til April 27, Issue One and Issue Six are both 50% off. After that, our online shop will close. If you never picked up a printed issue, now is your last chance!

“Similar to Seoul itself, there are countless hidden gems and small businesses in every corner, and many families have planted roots and stayed in operation since the ‘80s and ‘90s. Through the turbulent Los Angeles riots and the rebuilding of communities, Korean immigrants have persevered and made an impact in shaping Los Angeles culture between Vermont and Crenshaw, from Beverly down to Olympic.” — L&T Contributor @andreasung — Read “Banchan: The Story of the Korean Side Dish” by exploring our archives at — Photo by L&T Founder @antonio#lifeandthyme
“LA DIET” by @framboisejam from the #lifeandthyme global Instagram community.
“In search of a sense of home, a handful of Thai families started meeting in Prussian Park on the weekends. They gathered with their German husbands and bicultural children to celebrate a common food and culture. They created a place of belonging, free from the struggles that plagued much of their daily lives. Early on, at the request of hungry German passersby, some families shared a bit of their curry and noodles, accepting a few euros in exchange. As word spread, those weekend get-togethers gradually transformed into a full-fledged street market.” — L&T Contributor @bravotravels on Berlin’s Thai Park.

“Despite the differences between Thai and German fare, there are a couple of dishes that provide a surprising culinary overlap: sai oua and luk chin ping. The northern Thai sausage and meatballs resemble plenty of local staples found on any number of menus in Berlin. The pork sausage made with a blend of kaffir lime leaves, lemongrass, galangal, and red curry paste provides a gateway into Thai cuisine for a more hesitant eater.” — L&T Contributor @bravotravels — Today on Berlin’s Prussian, or “Thai” Park, provides locals and visitors a place to gather and eat, to learn from one another, and for the city’s Thai population, to earn a living.

“For the next phase of their whiskey production, enter Jimmy Red corn, via Glenn Roberts, founder of Anson Mills. Roberts started Anson Mills in 1997 as a way to preserve food heritage through native seed collecting. His work was inspired by rice, but really began when he found antebellum corn in a moonshiner’s yard in rural South Carolina. The quest eventually led him to Jimmy Red corn, which was used in illegal whiskey production during Prohibition.” — L&T Contributor @shanna_farrell on @highwirechs ’ Jimmy Red Corn Bourbon.

“The story of Jimmy Red bourbon is an American one, namely of the South. It starts in a hidden corner on a coastal island and ends in a bottle of whiskey that conjures a sense of place, emblematic of the magic of South Carolina’s agricultural richness.” — L&T Contributor @shanna_farrell — Read the full story at or tap the link in our profile. — Photo by L&T Photographer @maggie.armstrong#lifeandthyme #bourbon
“The most remarkable thing about Jimmy Red is when it ferments, it creates a three-inch thick oil cap on top of the mash, which we had never seen before. It was just unheard of. This was three inches thick, beautiful corn oil that smelled like—for lack of a better reference—banana Laffy Taffy.” — Ann Marshall of @highwirechs — Today on In Charleston, South Carolina, High Wire Distilling Company finds inspiration in southern roots, creating expressive spirits with heirloom grains.

From the L&T Archives: “... in America, chocolate was imported from England via Jamaica where it was first sold in Boston pubs in the 1670s. In the following century, Benjamin Franklin sold ‘very good chocolate’ in his Philadelphia print shop, and George and Martha Washington made cocoa tea from cacao beans. Just two centuries after its introduction into Europe, cacao had been stripped of all religious associations and had become a driving force behind the development of plantation economies.” — L&T Contributor @artbites_maite from her story, Chocolate Unwrapped.
