Issue Two Now Available

In this issue, acclaimed chef Ed Lee talks about this amalgamation of culture. We visit Spiaggia in Chicago to find a bridge built between the Midwest and Italy. We learn that the idea of local coffee in the Midwest isn't as delusional as it might sound. As we explore food in the Midwest—the church fish fries and untold family meals and ethnic food festivals alike—we find that every one of these traditions is foreign. Not ours. As rooted as these hallmarks of Midwestern culture get in the cornfields here, as commonly as they appear on postcards at truck stops, somebody brought them here from somewhere else.
