With a name that recalls the Botrytis Cinerea, the noble grape rot that gives life to incredible wines, Noble Rot it could only be an incredible magazine dedicated to the nectar of Bacchus and its intriguing combinations with food.
Founded in London in 2013 by Dan Keeling and Mark Andrew, the most incredible culinary challenges have taken place in the pages of this quarterly magazine: since its launch it has seen chefs Pierre Koffmann, Fergus Henderson and Yotam Ottolenghi compete with Keira Knightley, Caitlin Moran , Brian Eno and Francis Ford Coppola, blurring the lines between gastronomy and the creative arts.

- The "New Food and Wine Dictionary" resumes with new contributions from Brian Eno, Angela Hartnett and Ed Balls.
