Whetstone Volume 9

Whetstone is a quarterly mag all about food origins, culture and culinary anthropology.

Volume 9 Spring 2022

This issue explores the indigenous roots of some of our best loved foods and the effects of shifting borders and colonisers. 

Inside you'll find the origins of sumac and their role in its modern uses, the ancient olive groves of Turkey, the surprisingly tender practices of reindeer herding in Finnmark and how 'curry powder' became synonymous with Indian cuisine and ubiquitous in our kitchen cupboards.
