Edible South Florida launch


Edible South Florida celebrated the launch of its first issue today at Whole Foods. Run and edited by Katie Sullivan, the quarterly magazine is part of Edible Communities and it chronicles local foods, farmers, growers and chefs. For those of you who like me haven’t previously lived somewhere with an Edible magazine, we’ve apparently been missing out. I met several people at the launch who were thrilled to now have the magazine that they used to read in Chicago or LA in South Florida.


The event had a great turnout. Trina of Miami Dish was there, as well as Dave of South Florida Beer Blog and Caroline of Occasional Omnivore but I didn’t get to meet them. Local farmers like Hani Khouri Redland Mediterranean Organics and Margie Pikarsky of Bee Heaven Farm were also present.

It’s nice to have a magazine devoted solely to our local food scene, supporting local chefs, growers and artisans. The first issue includes recipes by chef Michael Schwartz, a feature on food trucks featuring GastroPod, a profile of Gaby Berryer of Gaby’s ice cream, a round up of local chefs’ favorite local ingredients, a look at Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) programs and an article on sustainable seafood choices.

Pick up a copy (I believe they’ll be at Whole Foods) or subscribe online ($28/year). And congratulations Katie.

    You are too modest. Your article about sustainable fish in the Edible South Florida ‘zine is so great! PEOPLE — pick up the magazine and go straight to Paula’s piece. It’ll make you flip like a dolphin.

    Congratulations to you and to Katie and everyone involved in the magazine. It’s such a great addition to our little (and growing!) community…
