About Us

Who we are



Here at Gusto we believe in 3 things:
1. Anyone can cook
2. Food and the experiences that surround it should be thoroughly enjoyed.
3. Whatever one does should be done with vigor and passion.

Gusto was created in 2018 as a food-themed literary journal created by students for students. We put out two print journals a year (one per semester) in addition to our online content. We strive to inspire and engage our audience as we explore the unique value of food in each of our lives. Through the lens of food, we focus in on the people behind all of our culinary experiences.
