Literary food journal Beer and Butter Tarts being launched in Toronto

A new, twice-a-year literary food journal called Beer and Butter Tarts is being launched this week in Toronto. Though its first issue came out in December, a launch party is being held on January 28 at The Rhino Restaurant & Bar (skylight room), 1249 Queen Street West.

The magazine contains essays, short fiction, poetry, photography and art and tells the stories of food in Canada, from coast to coast to coast.Beer and Butter Tarts costs $18 an issue in Canada. 

The journal springs out of a publishing enterprise called Stained Pages Press, which consisted of a 'zine started in 1994 by Greg Clow and Sheryl Kirby. It was distinguished by the fact that its pages were randomly marked by food stains (e.g. wine or coffee rings) so each issue was one of a kind. The other publication of SPP is Kitchen Party, a collection of food stories by Kirby. In addition to publishing, Clow and Kirby present the Toronto Indie Arts Market Small Press and Literary Festival.
