Why + Who

Middlewest is a modern food magazine made in Chicago. It’s printed on hearty cardstock and the pages are unbound; each page can exist on its own as a recipe card. Every issue of Middlewest arrives in a sturdy, resealable envelope and includes a copy of Middlewest’s Literary Supplement, which is where we publish work that is not recipe based.
