About this project
Mise Magazine looks to join the ranks of the new food-centric publications currently raising the bar (and then whooping that bar's ass), but in a format that is immediately accessible no matter where you are. New issues come out every two weeks—armed to the teeth with six features, rad illustrations, and top-notch photography—and will be available both online and on your phone.
The pieces we're nuts about capture those moments—the crazy-eyed, electric buzz of discovering of a new ingredient, the thrill of a knocking down a full line of tickets, the contemplative silence of menu creation—that define our experiences with food from behind the scenes. We revel, rather than review; our task lies not in tastemaking or trendsetting, but in storytelling.
In order to do this thing right, we need a little help from you, our future readers and our friends, to compensate our contributors for the first four issues while we continue to build our subscriber base.
$40,000 would allow us to 100% fund our first two months of publication, a crucial window that will let us show you what we can do if given an opportunity.
Risks and challenges
Guess what? This puppy has literally no risks. Providing another outlet for informed discussion and awesome content is never a bad thing.
The challenges in any operation like this, on the other hand, always come down to funding. Luckily for us, all of the action takes place online, leaving all of our focus dedicated to paying contributors exactly what they deserve, rather than fretting over printing costs and distribution. Every writer, illustrator, photographer, videographer, and designer we feature has been handpicked for their astounding talent and the scope of their knowledge in their field, and we think they should be paid what they’re worth!
So, in order to make this whole thing run, we will be depending solely on our subscribers. That means no ads, and no corporate types or sales teams directing coverage—just you, calling the shots with your support, and reading what you want to read. Our biggest challenge will be spreading the word as far and as loudly as we can, which can always be done with a little tenacity and vocal supporters.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
