Kitchen Table Issue #3


Make no doubt, in this year 2020, we as a society are in the fight of our lives, and we believe abjectly in taking it to the streets; when we make our voices heard en masse, those in power have no recourse but to listen. We also believe in small acts of personal resistance: planting seeds; cooking for strangers; championing diversity; finding family in unlikely places; and disappearing in the woods.

In our lead feature, Leah Penniman—author of Farming While Black: Soul Fire Farm’s Practical Guide to Liberation on the Land—challenges readers to consider how food security should not be contingent on privilege, race, and wealth. Plus: make pork chops with Marge Simpson; explore the art history of infamous kitchen bible, The Joy of Cooking; and take a deep dive into the food scene of the Italian Futurists. Issue #3 celebrates thoughtful, kind, and stubborn actions that run counter to the divisional, profits-before-people, and fear-mongering that’s hard to escape in our culture.
