The Food Almanac is a monthly collection of food stories told by an eclectic mix of voices from the literary and food worlds.
From legendary food writers and lauded chefs to up-and-coming poets and debut novelists, each story looks at the gastronomic world through a cultural prism, using food as a way to explore deeper issues. After all, writing about food is, inevitably, writing about life.
This diverse, dazzling collection of food writing includes memoirs, essays, short stories and poems, all commissioned specially for the collection by Miranda York, editor of At The Table magazine.
Food can inspire and bring people together: to share conversations, to share ideas, to share knowledge, and feel connected. Our happiest moments are often created sitting round a table, sharing food and stories with people we love, people we admire, or even people we've just met. Join us at the table, all year round.
Miranda started her career as a food, travel and culture journalist, writing for publications such as Financial Times, Vogue, Urban Junkies, How To Spend It and Harper's Bazaar before she founded TOAST, now known as At The Table, in 2013. She has since curated over 80 events and published an independent food magazine, as well as founding a food market in Bermondsey. A born-and-bred Londoner, her favourite restaurants are to be found under railway arches and along the narrow streets of Soho.
In 2019, Miranda launches a podcast with Anna Sulan Masing based on their sell-out series of events, Voices At The Table. The series will also be going on the road, with events lined up in Bristol, Cambridge, Edinburgh and New York, alongside monthly events in London.
