The end of one era, but the promise of something new

For the past 20+ years, Donna Hay has been a driving force in the Australian food scene. As Australia’s leading food editor and best-selling cookbook author, she has shaped the conversation around food for decades. Recently, Hay announced that major changes were afoot: both Donna Hay Magazine and Donna Hay Fresh + Light) will soon be ceasing publication

The announcement began with the words “Be brave” and explained that now is the perfect time to make a transition. “With the 100th issue of donna hay magazine drawing near, I feel clarity…it’s time for change,” Hay said, stating that the milestone issue “will be the last as you’ve known it.” 

Fans can breathe a sigh of relief that while the change may signal the end of an era, it does not mean the end of the Donna Hay brand. A new cookbook is in the works, and Hay promises that a new subscription print publication will also be forthcoming. “We believe there is still demand for high-quality creative print publication, and we are working on a plan to create a new and different magazine,” Hay notes.  Updates will be posted on the Donna Hay website when there is more information. Naturally, we’ll be keeping our ears to the ground and as soon as we hear something, we will share it with you.
