Vittles - A food and culture newsletter
Vittles is a food and culture newsletter based in the UK and India, edited by Jonathan Nunn, Sharanya Deepak, Rebecca May Johnson and Adam Coghlan. Each season, it runs themed deep dives into aspects of food culture by different writers, from regional chippie guides to food in care homes. The British Library has called it one of ‘the most significant, exciting, innovative and broad-reaching platforms in the food world’ while The New Statesman has said it ‘seeks to fill the large gaps left behind by the UK’s elite and inaccessible food media.’
We commission seasonally. The current season, Season 7, is Food and Policy.
While the main newsletter usually goes out on Monday, on Wednesday and Friday the paywalled newsletter is taken by a series of regular columns and features with range from opinion pieces and polemic, to recipe and restaurant writing. There is also a rotating column, Normal Country, about the everyday food culture of Britain.
Our latest project is Vittles Restaurants, which publishes regular full-length reviews by Jonathan Nunn, and Six of One, which consists of six recommendations for restaurants in London by six different writers.

We aim to ensure that contributors to Vittles are paid fairly: the current rate is £800 for a full newsletter, or 40p a word otherwise. This is all made possible through user donations. All paid-subscribers have access to the back catalogue of paywalled articles. A subscription costs £5/month or £45 for a whole year.
