Mess Hall is a culinary journal based on personal narratives. It's a collection of recipes, meals, simple ingredients, cravings, hunts or gathers. Think if The Moth had a cookbook. Our inaugural issue, Hometown, is about the meals and produce we love, how food can define our family history, sustain our communities and cities, and in some way make us who we are. If you like what we do and have a story, a recipe, a memory to share about the food you eat, submit it and we’ll immortalize you on the printed page.
