WHETSTONE  A print publication on food origin and culture — for the culture.

A pre-dinner #cider convening featuring impromptu cameo by @chefjoseandres. His words of encouragement for our cider crew? Keep going, be patient, bring the cider to the people. Hear, hear, jefe! 🍎 🍏 🍻

At #Queso Rebollín, Cristina teaches us how to make local #cheese, which is mostly cleaning, scooping, separating, pressing and more cleaning.

Feeling grateful for the opportunity to be joined by this outstanding collective of cider growers/makers, restaurateurs, and food + drink professionals. We’re here to learn about Spain’s rich cider culture and traditions, and see which elements can be adapted for New York’s own vibrant cider industry. The trip was made possible by @glynwoodorg and @angryorchard and we’re excited to share what we’re seeing on the farms, creameries, #siderias, the beautiful #Basque country, and of course the cuisine. Check out our stories this week for some #originforaging in #EspañaVerde.

Talking with the hands, speaking from the heart. Thank you @heathnewsstandsf for hosting Whetstone and our friend and fellow indie food publisher @toothache_mag. We were delighted by the inquisitive guests and the opportunity to talk about doing what we love. Feeling grateful and inspired after last night’s convening. Thanks to everyone who joined and especially Sara, Justine and the Newsstand team for facilitating and supporting our work.

At the base of two volcanoes 🌋 is Hilo, a town of 30,000 built on the foundation of sugar cane plantations and their workers. Yesterday we were lucky enough to be led through this beautiful city by one of its fourth generation residents, @andrewrichatdhara. At the 100+ year-old Suisan Fish Market, we got our #poke on, and in addition to the local fish, were the beneficiaries of a local history lesson too. This #ahi and #hamachi mixed plate was a indulgent base for a day spent exploring Hilo’s breathtaking farms and rugged landscapes. #OriginForaging on the #BigIsland, humbled and inspired. Mahalo!

The Wednesday #market at the intersection of Mamo Street and #Kamehameha in #Hilo is a wonderland for #tropical fruit lovers. Today our market satchel was filled with #durian, #papaya #rolliniadeliciosa, #rambutan, #longan #mango and #zapote.

#Musaceae stash! #Bananas clumped in stacked stalks of massive leaves. The world’s islands and inland are filled with these flowering plants. The earliest cultivators, Papa New Guinea and Southeast Asia are both diverse centers with archeological claims to #origin. #originforaging

At 9pm, in the middle of intermittent storms — island storms — Sam decides to forgo dinner to join friends for deep sea #lobster diving. With a flashlight, he easily detects one even 30 feet below the surface. Their eyes turn a luminescent green, and immediately, they freeze. Sam makes his move, gripping it firmly, before taking it to the surface. It’s put on ice and served for dinner this evening. This is only permitted in months with r’s and tonight, we “are” in luck. #HawaiianSpinyLobster #OriginForaging

View from the majestic #Alaverdi #Monastery, an Eastern Orthodox cathedral where #monks have toiled in the #vineyard and #cellar for centuries corralling #WildGrapes into holy water in the heart of #GeorgianWine country, #Kakheti.

Hi Everyone!
Next Thursday from 6pm-7:45pm @isawstephen will join @toothache_mag founder @nick_muncy at @heathnewsstandsf to talk recipes, representation and the journey from working in restaurants (as a #sommelier and #pastrychef) to #indiepublishing.The talk starts at 6:30pm. Tickets are available on Eventbrite. #BayArea friends, come through! Non-Bay Area Friends, tell your Bay Area friends!

Last Easter @mrdavidp and @isawstephen traveled to #Lagodheki, a small village at the base of the #CaucusMountains in Eastern Georgia to explore #WildGrapes. We were met with gracious hospitality and celebratory meal that took 24 hours to prepare, complete with speared fish, #qvevri #wine and assorted wood-oven baked #breads.

Just a tug and a twist between you and this micro #kiwi harvest. Pick them firm. They ripen at home, not on the vine #Orchard #OriginForaging below a majestic blue sky. Good morning Sonoma County!
