Across 14 issues, Digest published recipes, poetry, videos, and short essays from an online nexus of artists, curators, historians, cooks, and more from LA and beyond. Each contribution explores themes from seed-keeping to reciprocity, music to memories. Andrea Gyorody was Digest’s Founding Editor, and the final four issues we guest-edited by quori theodor, Safia Siad, Ferron Salniker, and Nneka Jackson.
