Table Matters is an online magazine that zeros in on the intersection of food, drink, and culture.

We cover all things related to your food life in a fresh, unpretentious, thoughtful, inclusive, opinionated, and sometimes irreverent way. Our stories help you entertain and nourish your friends, family, or even just yourself. Whether it’s a quiet, solo after-work craft cocktail you’ve mixed yourself or a strategy to get healthy meals on your family’s table all week, Table Matters is the place to come for fresh inspiration.

Our coverage starts at home, around your kitchen table where issues of health, history, culture, politics, and quality of life play themselves out every day, but we also bring fresh perspectives on the world beyond, keeping you informed about larger trends in shopping, dining, eating out, and reading.


Table Matters is published by Drexel University’s Center for Cultural Outreach, a unit of the Pennoni Honors College.
