After publishing as a quarterly for nine swift seasons, I have succumbed to the luxuries of print-on-demand. What this means is, I no longer have to fuss with the tenuous aspects of the United States Postal Service. What it means to you is, a lot more to read and ponder. Argentfork now comes in color, and I think you’ll like what you see.cover

In this 10th edition of Argentfork … Kampot pepper: Our man in Cambodia comes home, and bearing gifts. Malt whisky: My desert-island five. Book review: How Faviken will change your mind, if not your life. France: A memoir of the Languedoc’s best-kept wine secret. Honey: A disabled veteran finds solace in the company of bees. Port: Why does nobody drink it? Saffron: Looking back on the golden age. Kale: A tale of two. Preservation: Turning 50 in New Orleans. Sea salt: A lesson in Mediterranean manufacture. Lamb: Leading the sheep to slaughter. Cheese enchiladas: Tearing into a Route 66 Tex-Mex classic.

Once, a quarterly, now a yearly journal, Argentfork runs 110 pages and costs $25. Purchase your copy (or copies, as they make swell stocking stuffers) at Amazon and Barnes & Noble. Thanks for considering Argentfork for yourself and your friends.
