Some have constructed modern urban homes from blueprints, while others nurture their home’s long history.

Wabi Sabi Welcome Book Review:

“An antidote to the veneer of perfectionism so often presented by books of its kind, Wabi-Sabi Welcome offers readers license to slow down and host guests with humility, intention, and contentment.” —Nathan Williams, founder of Kinfolk Wabi-Sabi Welcome is sharing a pot of tea with friends. It is preparing delicious food to nourish, not to show off. It’s keeping a basket of cozy slippers at the door for guests. It is well-worn linens, bouquets of foraged branches, mismatched silverware, and heirloom bowls infused with the spirit of meals served with love. In this lush entertaining manual, author Julie Pointer Adams invites readers into artful, easygoing homes around the world—in Denmark, California, France, Italy, and Japan—and teaches us how to turn the generous act of getting together into the deeper art of being together. In this book, readers will find: unexpected, thoughtful ideas and recipes from around the world; tips for creating an intimate, welcoming environment; guidelines for choosing enduring, natural decor for the home; and inspiring photographs from homes where wabi-sabi is woven into daily living.

Savor Book Review:

“Capturing a connection between sourcing and sustainability is the focus of Savor . . . A new tome on fresh and wholesome cooking.” —Hamptons Savor is a stunning cookbook that celebrates rustic good food made from natural ingredients. Experiencing the bounty of nature is one of life’s great joys: foraging, gardening, fishing, and, ultimately, cooking casual meals, whether indoors or outside over an open fire. From her home in the mountains of Aspen, Colorado, Ilona Oppenheim devises recipes that make the best use of the abundance of her surroundings: foraged mushrooms and berries, fresh-caught fish, pasture-raised dairy, and home-milled flours. Oppenheim’s recipes rely on quality ingredients and simple cooking techniques to make nutritious, family-centric dishes, including Kale and Feta Quiche, Ricotta and Roasted Fig Bruschetta, Vegetable Soup with Mini Meatballs, Porcini Fettuccine, Tomato Tart, Oatmeal Baked Apples, and Pear Crisp, among others. Many of these recipes call for only a handful of ingredients and require very few steps, resulting in dishes that are easy to make and fresh, wholesome, and delicious too. This romantic and delicious portrayal of living in harmony with nature will appeal to gardeners, gatherers, foragers, and home cooks but will also transport the armchair reader straight to the forest. The natural beauty of mountains, valleys, streams, and vast swaths of land jumps out from these stunning pages. “Gorgeous . . . A treat even if you don’t feel like cooking.” —The New York Times “A love letter to summers spent foraging, fishing, and cooking for her family in the Rockies.” —Denver Life

Kinfolk Volume 18 Book Review:

Kinfolk Issue Eighteen: For our winter edition, we explore the relationship between community and design. How can design strengthen bonds with our families, friends and neighbors? And how can good design improve our quality of life? Design is a type of communication. It’s about the way an object or idea speaks to its audience. But good design not only gets its message across—it also engages us in a conversation. The voices in this issue’s pages have taught us that there’s no set of rules that govern what constitutes “good design.” Form doesn’t have to follow function, function doesn’t have to follow form—in fact, there shouldn’t be any following at all, only leading.

Eat With Us Book Review:

A beautiful, minimalist cookbook that invites you to take a more mindful approach to every meal. CONSIDER A SLOWER, MORE MINDFUL APPROACH TO COOKING and eating together. A way to disconnect from the outside world's distractions and truly connect to each other and yourself. A moment to take the time to enjoy and elevate the experience of every day cooking. For Philip and Mystique (the co-creators and couple behind the blog Chef Sous Chef), this approach in the kitchen is a way of life. Mystique is the "sous" to Philip's "chef," and through her elegant, authentic touches, his delicious dishes come to life. In their debut cookbook, they share their simple, stunning recipes, and the stories and memories behind them. Eat with Us's recipes are inspired by Philip and Mystique's family favorites growing up and the multicultural city they live in. The chapters are organized by occasion to reflect the way we truly eat today: Simple (weekday meals), Comfort (food for the soul), Lavish (special occasions), Al Fresco (dining outdoors), and Feasts (larger parties). From breakfast (Baked Eggs in Tomatillo Sauce with Bacon) to dinner (Channa Curry with Coconut Milk), and salads (Fig Panzanella with Ricotta and Basil) to sweets (Salted Brown Butter Chocolate Chunk Cookies), these recipes celebrate and elevate home cooking. In Eat with Us, Philip and Mystique invite you to read, cook, eat, savor, connect and unwind.
