Whetsone Volume 09: Spring 2022
Volume 9 explores Indigenous cultures and the effects of shifting borders and colonizers. These ideas spread from the Sami hunters and fishers of Finnmark to the Indisch people and cuisine in Indonesia and the Netherlands. We also look at curry powder’s journey around the world and ancient olive orchards in Turkey.

About Whetstone: Whetstone is an independently published quarterly print and digital publication on food origins, culture, and culinary anthropology. More ancestral than artisan, Whetstone explores the origins of the things we eat and drink, seeking to better understand people through their food and traditions. The magazine debuted in the spring of 2017. 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, but 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.
