Black Lamb


Now in its 14th year of publication, this magazine was created to offer the discerning reader a stimulating selection of excellent original writing. Black Lamb Review is a literate rather than a literary publication. Regular columns by writers in a variety of geographic locations and vocations are supplemented by features, reviews, articles on books and authors, and a selection of “departments,” including an acerbic advice column and a lamb recipe.


Black Lamb welcomes submissions from new writers. Email us.

The All Food Issue

In the cover article of our All Food Issue, Are you gonna eat that?, Ed Goldberg reviews a life spent loving food and pitying those who merely eat to live. In Getting the hang of it, from our Black Lamb Archives, we reprint Cate Garrison’s classic tale of of an Englishwoman struggling to prepare a Thanksgiving meal. Elizabeth Fournier confesses her love of bacon in Can’t get enough.

In The year of eating dangerously, John M. Daniel remembers a period of his life when he subsisted on junk food. Toby Tompkins admits that his attempts in the kitchen have often led to Cooking disasters. In The real thing, Leslie Russell celebrates the lowly corn tortilla, made fresh at home. Greg Roberts proffers one of the world’s best recipes, a fresh Fish fry. In Irresistible, Benjamin Feliciano acknowledges the office snack par excellence, popcorn. Dan Peterson reveals his wife’s recipe for spaghetti carbonara in You can’t go wrong.

Our Honorary Black Lambs column wecomes a new inductee, playwright and novelist Oliver Goldsmith. In Use that long suit, bridge columnist Trixie Barkis executes a successful squeeze. Advice columnist Millicent Marshall answers reader’s questions about food. And Professor Avram Khan gives us another challenging Black Lamb Word Puzzle.
