Birmingham has been getting some food press recently about its foodie exploits, so the launch of a new magazine celebrating this seemed fairly apt.
Edible Brum is a darling of a magazine created by the team behind the Warehouse Cafe (a fab veggie restaurant in town) and features an array of articles from local food heros. It’s got an interesting collection of articles, from one by Loaf‘s Tom Baker (whose Bread Basics course I went on a few years ago and would highly recommend) on the state of bread and where to get a good loaf from, to an exploration of indie coffee shops (including two of my favourites and one I’ve been meaning to try for a while), interviews with top chefs and a host of other articles. Oh and there’s an article by a certain bar showing you how to make your own seasonal rhubarb cocktail too. I was around when this was being created and its pretty delicious – sloe gin and rhubarb liqueur, of course it would be!
I’ve already made a mental list of things mentioned in there I need to seek out and I’m already looking forward to the summer edition.
