What is Whetstone?
Whetstone is a print publication on food origin and culture. More ancestral than artisan, it explores where the things we eat and drink come from. It seeks to better understand people through their food and traditions.
The magazine debuted in the spring of 2017 with the second expected in October. Whetstone is Bay Area-based, and works with a team of global creatives representing over a dozen countries.
As a minority-owned publisher, we’re proud to say this venture is led by a team of women and people of color. We believe this diversity is not just noteworthy, it's part of what makes the project so essential. When the gatekeepers are diverse, so too are the stories, its tellers and their experiences. This diversity accelerates our knowledge and empathy. Whetstone is unequivocally and gratefully a better publication because of it.
