a biennial collection of fff stories 

We are so very pleased to launch our new biennial publication, musings, with ISSN 2562-9832 (Print) and ISSN 2562-9840 (Digital). It is a collection of stories centering food, feminism, and fermentation, written from an impressive range of perspectives.

We've built an abecedary, or ABC book, with words common to food, feminism, and fermentation. The goal was to find a shared language that connects us as scholars, foodmakers, artists, scientists, and journalists engaging with/in these three domains. 

Here is the Table of Contents. Every week, we'll upload the PDF version of each entry in order:
