This is a page to tell you a little bit more about my food zine, Marmalade Umlaut. I started this zine in late 2007 and there are 19 issues at present which are released (just about) every two months. I include poems, recipes, rants and raves, doodles, tips, and games of sorts, etc. As a caveat, I was but a punk, drunk youth when I started these! Earlier issues (until about #6 or so) are a bit...brash. FYI.
Here's a rundown of the issues:
#1: Pretty much what you can expect from a first issue of anything. But interesting as a piece of, uhm, history.
#2: Kind of scary, as I was sort of a drunk at this point.
#3: More vegan guilt tripping/ problems with ED but recipes for biscuits and gravy
#4: Weird drunk stuff, OCD food lists, and a recipe for German chocolate cake
#5: Lots of pumpkin recipes, freaking out for the holidays
#6: Dada food, the first appearance of friend and confidant, Greg Farrell
#7: Food in season, word search
#8: Doodles and comics, vague recipes
#9: Christmas 09 issue, so I tone things down a bit. VCIYCJ Pumpkin Pie Brownies & review by Michelle here
#10: Highlights include a great food comic strip from Greg and a lot of Woody Allen
#11: Easter experience and detox recipes
#12: "Foodie quiz", personal comic about how crazy I am, seasonal spring stuff
#13: Raw food, food word games
#14: Back to school issue: historical foodstuffs, baking measurements
#15: "The OCDs of Cooking," moving with a fridge full of food
#16: Food word games, recipe for squash muffins, survey
#17: My friend Chris, sexy recipes! Reviewed by Molly, here and Kala here. (Thanks, guys!)
#18: Summer things to be excited about, raw salads, Dinner Party comic, vegan body care. Rose takes beautiful photos and presents food so well, I'm honored to have had her review a couple zines and make one of the raw salad recipes, shown here.
#19: Food pantry round up, fall recipes, how to love fresh produce in the cold weather
#20: Recipe from Spain from my sister, Blackberry tart recipe from my friend, vacation food projects, Riot Grrrl and Veganism
Each issue ranges from 16 to 20 pages.
I'm selling each issue for $3 apiece, S&H included.
