The Runcible Spoon is a twice-yearly zine about food and fantasy based in Washington, D.C. Our goal is to capture the pleasure and playfulness of eating through imaginative, delicious (and sometimes made-up) recipes, illustration, storytelling and collage, submitted by writers and artists across the country. 

The zine was started in 2010 by Malaka Gharib in Washington, D.C. She runs the zine with a team of assistant editors, Claire O'Neill, Alison Baitz and Kalee Rinehart.
