Edible Sacramento is back!

Jaci and I are excited to announce that we have taken this vibrant and important local food and drink magazine on board. We will be steering the ship, but you'll notice stalwarts creating the look, feel, and voice that you've loved for more than 14 years. We've brought back the talented team that has produced the publication, including outstanding editor Andrea Thompson; accomplished editorial designer Ben Della Rosa; and masterful writers, photographers, and illustrators. With their contributions, we'll craft a meaningful publication that will celebrate and support America's farm-to-fork capital.

We are passionate supporters of the local food and drink movement and for eight years have produced edible Sacramento's sister publication, edible Reno-Tahoe. In that time, we've helped change the food culture, introducing readers to local farmers, ranchers, food artisans, brewers, distillers, nonprofits, and more. We've urged people to buy local, healthy, natural, nutritious choices. We've connected restaurateurs to local producers, and, thus, cultivated the movement from a business-to-business perspective, too. We will continue those endeavors with edible Sacramento.

The best part of my job is meeting the brilliant, passionate, hardworking people in our local food and drink community. They inspire us and enrich our lives. We look forward to meeting food producers and enthusiasts here, including you. Reach out through social media (Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter) and let us know how we're doing. And don't forget to pitch us stories on local food leaders and businesses that captivate you. Let's grow this movement together.

Cheers to spring and a fresh start!

Amanda Burden and Jaci Goodman
