Toothache is a small self-published magazine conceived after dinner services with industry friends, primarily during last call at dive bars. Often times, food media is produced by people who do not live and breath kitchen life. Usually, it’s comprised of lengthy articles, a few pictures and a recipe in cups and tablespoons. Which makes sense, because they’re generally not writing for us, but instead writing for home cooks or “foodies”. This magazine’s goal, however, is to give ourselves a little bit of the media power back; to produce a magazine that a chef or cook would actually want to read. This magazine is essentially made as a collaborative project and gave chefs blank pages. It lets them add whatever images, recipes, and writing that they want. Toothache is for chefs, by chefs.
