With a dynamic mix of long-form journalism, interviews
and shorter essays, plus concept-driven visual stories and
contributors across the globe, the forthcoming issue of
continues to dedicate its editorial to exploring
personal values and quality of life.
The fall issue of Kinfolk explores one of life’s simplest pleasures: sharing
a meal. The act of eating together––whether at a well-appointed table or
in the simple breaking of bread––is an essential element of a well-lived
life. As MFK Fisher famously wrote, sharing a meal can be more intimate
than sharing a bed.
In this issue, we examine the role of food in forming and sustaining
relationships, its place in art and political history, and its significance
to the arbiters contemporary culture. We visit a breadmaker in her
Brooklyn studio, test a curated selection of recipes by a celebrated chef,
thumb the pages of Dali’s surrealist cookbook and revisit MFK Fisher’s
seminal writing on the joy of simple meals
