Farta Issue 3 – Rabanada
Farta is a beautiful magazines, that aims to show the value of traditional Portuguese dishes. A hybrid between a magazine and an artistic platform, the project takes on Portuguese recipes and culinary traditions that are widely consumed but less celebrated; the first edition is all about francesinha.
Issue 3: Rabanada
The third instalment is focused on ‘Rabanada’, the humble, and universally beloved, dessert of bread soaked in milk and sprinkled with brown sugar. Though traditionally reserved for Christmas Day, Farta defies rabanada's seasonality and explores its radical potential as a cocktail, an art object, and a fine dining modern classic. Whatever form it takes, ‘rabanada is a gift to be open all year round.’
An ode to one of the most popular desserts in the world — beyond Portuguese borders — that stirs spirits and brings back memories, that fills bellies and warms hearts. Fine dining restaurants and bakeries, made of wine and blood (yes!), are covered in this magazine beyond what is conventionally thought about their potential.
With many faces — the rabanada — from sweet to savory, from beautiful to ugly, from perfectly geometric features to a deformed piece of bread. Especially because the physical object that will soon reach your hands ends up being eye-catching, offering one of the deepest family connections through the excellence of its simplicity. And so the function is fulfilled.
