“Start spreading the news: the Edible family of magazines has made it to Manhattan. It’s harvest season in the tri-state region and you hold in your hands the first picking of a crop that’s already blossomed across the nation, upstate, out on the Island, and just over the Brooklyn Bridge. Like the American Food renaissance it celebrates, the first Edible sprouted in California, heralding the homegrown flavors of a surf town called Ojai.
When Saveur magazine knighted the little lip-smacking newsletter as one of its favorite things in America, something remarkable began. Across the country, from Boston to Austin and from the Front Range to the Finger Lakes, people who care about real food got inspired to publish collections of love letters to place-based taste. New Yorkers aren’t used to going without, and, as of today, we won’t have to anymore.”
