put a egg on it

put a egg on it is a quarterly food magazine out of new york city. it’s about “food, cooking and the communal joys of eating with friends and family”. the magazine features personal essays, cooking tips, photo essays of dinner parties and special art projects.



the latest Put a Egg on it celebrates 10 years from idea to 15 issues down the line. It’s a magazine that’s done a terrific job over the years to present an alternative guide to food, printing stories and wild experiences of chefs in the kitchen and dinner parties that would otherwise go undocumented. This edition doesn’t disappoint – it includes a recreation of a New York socialite dinner where everything was flamed, smoked and charred; there’s a photoessay of Black Panthers’ free breakfast program, and another photoessay of meal time in Algiers. Elsewhere there’s recipes, protest stories,  a puppet dinner and a great look at Portland book and zine publisher, Microcosm’s cookbooks.
