If you liked The Jello Salad Mystery Zine, support Kitchen Table Magazine and check out my reworked version of the piece!
Kitchen Table Magazine is running an all-or-nothing Crowdfundr until September 24 with great rewards including art prints, hot sauces, and, of course, the amazing magazine itself! I’ve been lucky to get paired with artists for other zines in the past, but this is also a milestone for me in that my own art accompanies the piece.
Issue 5 is the Roots Issue. In this issue, you’ll find stories, art, and ideas that explore the beautiful, flawed, and interconnected web of our food system, including:
- A Black-owned BBQ enterprise that binds multiple generations
- Reflections on the bittersweet nostalgia of Jell-O salads (that’s me!)
- Kitschy vintage cookies and red velvet skull cupcakes
- A Mother’s Day gone awkwardly wrong
- Sauce-makers answer Life’s mysterious questions
- A Navajo food podcaster
- Agriculture’s modern wave of intrepid and creative women farmers.

Pandemic and supply chain aside, indie publishing’s always rough, so please support KTM and other small food magazines. I love being able to read and create stories about food and identity I don’t see anywhere else.
