On Stands Now: Food, Glorious Food!

When I tell people we’re coming out with a food issue, their faces light up.

Cambridge’s homes and squares are packed with delicious food from all over the world, and in this issue we dive into how that food reflects the city that cooks it.

What’s more Cambridge, for example, than an app aimed at reducing food waste and increasing food access (p.16)?

What’s more Cambridge than a ghost restaurant that tries to make your food as on-demand as your TV shows (p.18)?

What’s more Cambridge than leveling the playing field through food education (p.36)?

You’ll find stories on all these topics, and more, in the pages of this issue. You’ll read up on the city’s newest food trucks (p.24). You’ll learn about Cambridge’s oft-forgotten candy-making glory days (p.30). And you’ll get the chance to hear about how the creators of Highland Fried added a new gem to Inman Square by trusting their instincts (p.34).

We hope this issue makes your mouth water and that we’ll see you at our Local Flavor event on June 24, where we’ll be featuring the people you read about in this issue and other local restaurants for a day of demos and tastings to benefit Community Servings and Food For Free. You can find more details about the event on our calendar (p.42).

Best,
