Hook & Blade



At Hook & Blade, we're telling stories about food. 

We're passionate about food and cooking and their relationship to the world around us, so we're sharing stories from the intersection of food and culture. From the chef making your Cacio e Pepe, to the food startup changing the way we eat, we're learning, discussing, and most importantly, eating.

So pull up a chair and stay awhile.
