Comestible: Issue 5

by Anna Brones

The fifth issue of this beautiful, thoughtful, weighty zine about food and food culture is dedicated to the idea of waste. Essays and recipes cover the theme broadly, including a group of grandmothers' efforts to rescue "ugly fruit" from the trash in Lisbon, an essay about eating weeds (and a recipe for cooking with them), an indigenous feminist food manifesto, a trip home to Cuba, instructions for onion skin dye and so much more. This might be the best issue yet, and the bold papercut art on the cover makes it a thing you'll be proud to hold long after you're done reading it.
