Foodieotical (foodie + periodical)

“Foodieotical” (foodie + periodical) was coined in April 2012 by the first annual Food Book Fair, held in Brooklyn. “Foodieoticals” celebrated food magazines—especially those from small, independent publishers. The “foodieoticals” term has been used each year by the Food Book Fair.

the new foodieodicals
By Cathy Erway
Is food practical? An art? Or a medium for art, like wrinkled tubes of paint? In 10 journals, it is the catalyst for conversation on a wide variety of social issues. From food safety to hunting to class and cultural identity, the topic of food has cut a bold swath of explorations through words, graphics and photography. Each of these “foodieodicals,” (as Elizabeth Thacker Jones, the founder of the Food Book Fair, a creative expo on food issues explored through literature held in New York this month, dubbed them) approaches food from all three modes of communication.
