Fire & Knives. New Food Quarterly.

Recommended Posts

After several years of whinging drunkenly about it we've finally got round to launching a food magazine.

Fire & Knives will be a quarterly, subscription only, print mag that features full-length essays and photo stories. We're aiming to fill what we feel is a need amongst food lovers for more in-depth material that is perhaps covered in the mainstream food press.

We want to run stories from established writers that might not get an airing elsewhere, to introduce new food writers and to publish stuff on food subjects from experts in other fields.

We're not designed to make a profit... all the proceeds from subscriptions go to production, printing and distribution... but though we'll stay broke, we're not restricted by pressures of advertising or the audiences they want to reach.

You can find more details about the magazine, including how to subscribe or submit material here. We'll also be posting regularly on the process of building and creating it on Twitter, Facebook, our own website and here.

We're all insanely excited about the project and can't wait to get the inky little buggers in our sweaty hands but that's still a couple of months off. For now though, we'd really love to know what you think about the idea, the site, the cover designs, the kind of articles you'd like to see... in fact, any feedback at all...

Thanks all.

It will be available on subscription internationally. At the moment, the engine we're using only enables us to price in UK£ but we're working on it.

Postage to the US is, sadly, rather expensive.

And yes please. The more submissions the better.
