Those champing at the bit for more local food culture news can now scoop up Edible Philly. Edible Communities, the family of more than 75 publications dedicated to connecting consumers to the vibrant world of healthful local food, added the new member in November.
Joy Manning, a James Beard Award–nominated food writer, has taken the helm as editor, alongside publishers Nancy and Ray Painter (Edible Jersey and Edible Hudson Valley, respectively). A project in the works for several years, Edible Philly was waiting for just the right time to make its debut.
“The city’s food scene deserves a publication that delves deep into our region’s food culture—not just chef news and restaurant openings,” Manning says. “Edible Philly helps connect people to their food and inspire them to learn more about it with every issue.”
The premiere issue of Edible Philly features an inside scoop on chef Jose Garces’ latest venture, a visit to Di Bruno Brothers’ original shop in Philadelphia’s Italian Market, and recipes using wintertime’s freshest produce, giving readers a healthy taste of what’s to come. The free publication will be published seasonally four times a year, and made available at more than 100 restaurants and markets around Philadelphia and the Lehigh and Delaware Valleys.
