tastes of Idaho

Edible Idaho provides Idaho with a new way to explore and appreciate our vibrant food shed and diverse culinary cultures.

Edible Idaho profiles the local farmers, fishermen, chefs, vintners, food artisans, retailers and others who help produce, prepare and deliver Idaho’s distinct bounty of food and drink. The magazine will especially highlight people who work to go about their business in sustainable ways.

Each season, the magazine will be brimming with vivid photography, engaging stories, mouth-watering recipes and helpful guides for finding and preparing our local food. What’s more, our website features an extensive calendar of food-related events and classes across our region, as well as other special features.

The magazine is available free primarily through our advertisers from around the state and by subscription via this website.

Edible Idaho South is a member of Edible Communities, a growing network of local food magazines published in over ninety communities across North America.  The magazine is locally owned and benefits from the support of an award-winning national publishing company with over 15 million readers nationwide.
