spenser is a bimonthly digital food & drink magazine. At spenser magazine, we believe we have the chance to progress our modern foodways, to improve the food we eat and to prioritize that which should take precedence in our kitchens, our gardens, our bars, our pantries, and at our tables.
Our mission is to help readers with the sourcing of provisions used on a daily basis, whether by purchasing, preserving, growing, curing, or foraging.
spenser highlights perspectives and voices from professional chefs, home cooks, farmers, butchers, bartenders, bloggers, travelers, designers, & distillers. These are all people who are carefully reviving traditions of the past while, at the same time, advancing the food & drink of the present. Collectively, they represent a fresh, new viewpoint that we hope will inspire readers to personalize the food and drink they share with friends and family.
"Spenser" is the Middle English word for butler or steward, which derived from the Old French despencier or larder. The word “Spenser” described the person who was in charge of sourcing of all food and provisions within a royal or noble household.
