The Brooklyn Food Mag You Should Be Reading

Edible Brooklyns summer issue just landed in our mailbox, and, as usual, we cant get over how good it is. The Edible series publishes magazines about regional food around the country, but weve looked at some of the others and theyre strictly from hunger. However, Brooklyn is right to have a better food magazine than, say, Missoula. But were proud that, rather than the semi-literate foodie zine we would expect, editor Gabrielle Langholtzs staff of one somehow manages to regularly compile so much good editorial and visual content for each issue. This issues includes a tour of Jonathan Lethems refrigerator, a mouthwatering profile of a live poultry market, and a big profile of Prospect Parks food concessions by Grub Street regular Zoe Singer. After all that, theres a piece on LeNells private-label rye whiskey, and a panegyric to Frankies 457 Spuntino, published alongside an almost pornographic photo essay featuring meatballs. When you think how lame the glossy food magazines are these days, you have to wonder what their excuse is.
