“Sugar” in Gastronomica

15 Jan

GFC1304loI’m honored to have my short-short story “Sugar” included in the winter 2013 issue of Gastronomica, the “brainiest” of food magazines, also called “the New Yorker of food magazines”. The fairy tale-ish story is set in Pike Place Market and begins thus:

“He couldn’t stomach currants in his salad. She couldn’t stomach his not stomaching her currants.”

You can subscribe to the magazine here; if you have access to JSTOR, you can read individual articles here.

    Hi Anca,

    I saw your message on the Tin House email. I hate answering to all those people so am answering here.

    Anyway, I loved the story. So good and FUN to read. Makes me want to go to Seattle and eat.

    Good luck with more.

    Good stuff, Anca. So exotic to taste lardons, noisettes and seagulls in almost the same bite 😉
    Keep baking those tasty bits, including full course meals…

      Aw, thanks, Andy! You just gave me a strange idea for a full course meal centered on seagulls…
