Comestible: A quarterly journal about food, the places it comes from and the people who grow it

Earlier this year I did something a little crazy: I launched a small print publication. It’s called Comestible and it’s a quarterly journal/zine all about food. But it’s not another food magazine. Comestible is a little different (or at least, I am working hard to make it so).

Since it came out in April, I have gotten a lot of great feedback on the spring issue. It’s so wonderful to see it out in the world being enjoyed by people!

It’s now time for the summer issue, and I am doing the same thing as last time: raising the production funds on Kickstarter. Why? Launching a small print publication is hard, and while I would love to, I don’t have the capital to pay for the printing up front.

That’s where you come in. Taking part in this Kickstarter campaign is an easy way to preorder a copy of the summer issue and ensure that you are part of the first group of people to receive it.

What will be in the summer issue?

  • More beautiful illustrations (like the one above – which yes, you can color in!)
  • An excerpt from Simran Sethi’s book Bread, Wine, Chocolate : The Slow Loss of Foods We Love
  • A trip to coffee origin with Eileen P. Kenny
  • An exploration of the vineyard and the world of natural wine with j.brix winemaker Emily Towe
  • A look into the world of natural dyeing by Sasha Duerr (my goal is to have more food/fashion/fiber crossover like this in the future!)
  • Seasonal recipes to take advantage of summer ingredient favorites, like sweet corn, tomatoes, cherries and more.

You can preorder a copy for $12, and there are also some good deals in there if you want to pick up a bundle of them, or if you want to stock up on the spring issue as well. Not to mention there is a limited edition Comestible coffee cup!

New Project: Foodie Underground

with 2 comments

For those of you that have followed along, you know that for the last 2.5 years I have written a column called Foodie Underground. Over time it has morphed into a space where I try to make the idea of good food less elitist. That takes many forms, from interviews with people in the food movement to snarky exposes on sauteed kale.

Well today marks the launch of FoodieUnderground.com, an entire website devoted to the idea of “good food, from good places with good people.” Read the Foodie Underground Manifesto for an idea of where it’s headed.
