Stone Magazine & Giveaway

Apologies for being a bit quiet recently. As well as working on new ideas we are also making sure that everyone will get their Stones in the quickest time possible, which means a lot of logistics to work out. Having over 3,000 pledgers makes us one of the most backed Kickstarter food projects in Kickstarter history which is pretty amazing.

Thanks to everyone who fed us new and interesting diary ideas. So many ones to think about, but we’ve picked out 3 we particularly liked. Tobias Johansson, we loved the "special" food holidays idea nearly as much as we like the sound of the Swedish cream-filled bun holiday itself. Anna, a quote from a chef on the given date/month is also a lovely touch. Finally, we give a special mention to Luke Pilkington for suggesting a built-in portable rechargeable charging port. A pretty crazy idea, but one that was sandwiched amongst other good ones.

The three of you will all receive a first edition Stone Diary once we get them made (hopefully by July this year) and will include all your ideas, except for the portable charger…


Stone Magazine 

As we had such a brilliant response to the diary we wanted to run a new idea past you that's been bubbling away for the past few months. We are currently exploring the possibility of creating a quarterly magazine for chefs. One that's filled with beautiful photos, recipes and techniques, food-related travel features and articles written by amazing and interesting chefs from around the world. And despite being made for chefs, it could be enjoyed by people that simply love food.

As a starting point, we’d love to know what you think about the idea and what you’d like to see in a magazine like this.

Above is a survey we’ve created. Once you’ve filled it in, just comment below with the word ‘Done’ and we will choose 3 names at random, each of which will receive a Stone reward!

Once again, thanks again for your incredible support!

      Done! So glad my hubby found this campaign with only 4 days to go. I would be so bummed to miss out on these notebooks!

      Done. And can you please write about those restaurants in far and exotic countries because even though I can't afford to visit them, it still gives me the chance to dream and hope that one day I'll make it there.

      I sent a message about my “anything to add” comment.

      Guys, your respoces have been increadible. Whoever wrote this please let us know. Such a nice and thought out responce to 'anything you'd like to add'. We will throw in a couple of extra memos to your order!

      'I hate food magazines that make it out like I have a 10,000.00$ kitchen at my disposal to cook. Recipes that are clear and use stuff I already have. Notes about how to get more use out of items I already have as well. Tips and tricks. Reference cards for ideas. Make the magazine more than a read. It should be interacted with. Used. Not just sit on the back of the toilet and maybe a recipe ripped out. That would change the game. For that, I’d pay $100 a year for quarterly installments if I felt that 40% or more of the magazine was useful or insightful. Also, I hate feeling like I will never experience the items. Hearing about a great local place if I ever get to Shanghai or a 5 page article about a great place in Brazil just makes me feel poor and untraveled. However a recipe of a way to make it at home and is simple and not involving a culinary degree would tie the article to my kitchen. Would love to discuss more. But I guess it depends on your audience
