The urbanite who takes the time to show us round their city, the expert who shares their wisdom on specialist foods, the writer who helps send us off to bed, it is stories of life and people which fill our pages and make The Simple Things what it is.
Meet Teyha, Laura and John. Parents, friends, cooks, and the cover stars of this month's issue of The Simple Things.
Teyha lives with her daughter Isa (pictured below) in Nevada City California, where John works as a chef and lives with his girlfriend Laura and their son Desmond (also pictured below). The friends recently got together to share and enjoy a tasty Mexican buffet, a gathering we share inside Issue 8.
"It's always a pleasure to get together a bunch of friends for a lazy afternoon of cooking..."
"Mexican food for me is all about enjoying family..."
We use real people in our mag not models because The Simple Things is about life, and we wanted to celebrate that on the cover. What do you think?
