Somerville Arts Council, Nibble: Exploring Food Art and Culture in Somerville

Nibble, explores how food tells a story and plays an important place-making role in society and culture. Nibble is an illustrated tour through the food landscape of Union Square, with its beautiful, motley mix of pizza joints, mom-and-pop markets, lively pubs, farmers markets, posh new restaurants and brimming global flavor. Nibble captures this dynamic and delicious place with personal stories, illustrations by local artists, and recipes from the featured restaurants.

Nibble includes:
Over 25 recipes from the folks at Taza, Casa B, Hightland Kitchen, the list goes on—and fabulous cooks, including the Mayor Joseph Curtatone’s mom, Maria!

Feature articles about: the locavore scene; Latino-American restaurant owners and food tourism; the many wonders of Market Basket; and local wine makers

Interviews with artists who use oreos and spices as media

First-person food stories about making yucca flour in Brazil, making tamales in Guatemala and a “secret Indian joint” in Union Square with great saag paneer

Plus, a Union Square restaurant, market and food producers guide!
