We never know exactly what the response will be when we ask readers to help choose our cover. The decision is never easy, as when you weighed in on the grape-y choice last fall or the contentious post-mortem summary we printed after. This latest ask featured a flurry of voting over the last two weeks, first for the sparkling Blue Moon Fishery vessel (part of our evening “In the Kitchen With” Alex and Stefanie Villani), and next for the illustrated diagram of foraged herbs (a sampling from our trek to pick with a Peconic forager or two). We also loved both of those covers, and agreed they were sufficiently springy and beautiful. Nonetheless, we decided to print the image of the local-fish-filled display from our profile of the Seafood Shop in Wainscott. The composition works with our cover title; the subject matter (a fishmonger in business more than 40 years) resonated with our issues theme: water and all that it provides; and we like that the picture includes a member of our food community (Seafood Shop general manager Alex Fausto).
The issue hits the streets this week, and is available in digital format now. (See below.) Even if you don’t agree with our cover choice, we hope you’ll enjoy the spring issue.
