Local/regional food "rags"

Recommended Posts

OK, I posted in "The Heartland" about a new publication, "Fire and Knives," in the Kansas City area.

Now I am curious what is happening elsewhere?

I read, with great interest, about the upcoming "Relish" insert to Sunday papers, but that's a different animal.

Are there other local/regional upstart publications?

To be honest, there's not much in my neck of the woods. But, I'm flirting with the idea of starting one. Granted, Tulsa isn't exactly a bubbling metropolis, but all there is to do here is shop and eat. And the shopping ain't that great ;)

Once you get away from the chains, there are some great eats here. I thought about blogging it, but maybe a free broadsheet to start isn't a bad idea.

Thoughts? Suggestions?

Here's the homepage of a local regional 'rag' from Vancouver Island, B.C. Canada with huge distribution not only on the island but Vancouver, Whistler and the Okanogan. It's a free publication but subscriptions are available to those outside the loop.

there's a decent magazine in cleveland published its first issue this spring, called Feast, edited by Laura Taxel a writer and the woman here who covers in her book Ethnic Eats all the ethnic restaurants and markets in the city.

wow, thanks. Looks like this is slightly more evolved than we are, but should serve as inspiration.

I'm afraid we'll never be able to lay claim to fresh sardines as a local product, though. :sad:

All we get here in Akron is Jane Snow in the Beacon Journal. :hmmm: Lame. We have to rely on Scene and the Free Times out of Cleveland. Their reviews are always entertaining.

I didn't check out the first issue of Feast, but did just look for it online. It's connected to Cleveland Magazine and only comes out twice a year, May and November. In terms of reviews, I like the Free Times and Scene a whole lot more than the Plain Dealer. The PD seems to be a tad biased.

Wow... that's pretty sparse! They might wanna put out a few more issues and get some content on the site. Looks VERY promising tho'.

I am humbled. Looks like you posted your opus when I was on vacation and not routinely checking the forums. Thanks for taking the time and energy to do this (and not taking your meds;-)

And when time allows, kindly add Fire & Knives, a monthly in the Kansas City area (print -- I know there is a UK-based website of the same name but the one I am referring to will get stuff on your fingertips, guaranteed).

If you need a new project my office is a disaster and my spice cabinet is always in disarray :wacko:

moosnsqrl, I wanted to let you know that I *finally* got around to adding Fire & Knives to the 'main list'. Sorry that it took me so long. Thank you for letting me know about it.

I mentioned this on gwilson's magnum opus thread ( :biggrin: ), but I'll post it here as well.

In the Hudson Valley (NY) we have an excellent publication, The Valley Table, which has done some wonderful, in-depth coverage of the artisanal producers and restaurants here. I believe they publish quarterly, and they've been around for about 7 years now.
