Beer and Butter Tarts – a Canadian literary food journal
It’s here and we’re so excited! A literary food journal has been on our to-do list for years and we’re finally making it a reality. Beer and Butter Tarts tells the stories of food in Canada, with essays, profiles, short fiction, poetry, art and photography. Our first issue is now available!




Your invitation to the party…
If you don’t have a copy of Kitchen Party – Food Stories From Nova Scotia and Beyond by Sheryl Kirby, you don’t know what you’re missing. This rousing and rowdy collection of personal essays maps one woman’s path to becoming a well-known Toronto food writer. From near-death adventures while clam-digging on the Bay of Fundy to living in the colourful Kensington Market, and a hard look at Toronto’s local food scene, you’ll be entertained, educated and provoked.

Now available via Lulu, on this site through Paypal, and in Toronto at The Cookbook Store. Check out the link for more info.


Supporting Micro-publishers
Stained Pages Press is the parent company of Toronto Indie Arts Market, a series of artisan events that takes place in Toronto. In an effort to support other micro imprints and self-published authors, as well as craftspeople, artists and food artisans, we’ve put together a marketplace that features cool and unique locally-created products. Our next Small Press and Literary Festival takes place Sunday, May 25th at the Gladstone Hotel.
