My Weekly June 12-19


June 16 cover

A word from the editor

Two of my favourite subjects are combined in one feature this week – football and food! Cookery editor Maggie is on target with her tasty World Cup canapés, which almost – almost – look too good to eat. My son Sam and I will certainly be sitting down to some ‘Piece of Turf’ cake while we watch the action in Russia. I hope you enjoy the wonderfully creative recipes too. If you try them, please do send us some pictures of your efforts. We will publish the best of them on our website and on Facebook. Have a great week.

Stuart Johnstone, Editor

I joined the My Weekly team eight years ago, and I love the variety of topics we cover both online and in the magazine. I manage the digital content for the brand, sharing features and information on the website, social media and in our digital newsletters. There's so much I enjoy about the job, but the best bit is being able to connect with our readers instantly.
