BETTER WITH AGE For our Winter issue, Kinfolk Issue 10, we will be exploring the process of aging and the way certain things improve over time. We plan to investigate the aging process of foods (fermenting, cheese, whiskey, pickled snacks), humans and animals (essays, advice and photo essays showing lives well spent), ideas, language and items. We plan to put ancient things lovingly under the microscope (tree bark, heirlooms, traditions, rituals, practices and terms), and celebrate things that society seems to have done away with (film cameras, love letters, men in hats, dancing). The issue will delve into traits, menus, tchotchkes that have been learned, taught, emulated, borrowed, inherited or passed down. We will meet some elder folks: parents, grandparents, friends, mentors, ancestors, home cooks and other creative dynamos past age 70. In a graceful and respectful fashion, we will look back while looking forward--using a modern Kinfolk take to show how to feel young, how to get old and how to make the most of now. While we changed our subtitle from "A Guide for Small Gatherings" to "Discovering New Things to Cook, Make and Do," we will continue to come up with ideas related to small gatherings, laid-back entertaining and making food for your favorite people.

Kinfolk is a place to discover new things to cook, make and do. Our growing international community is generous when it comes to sharing ideas for small gatherings, ways to take good care of friends and family and living a grounded, balanced lifestyle that is about connecting and conversation. Stunning photographs and colorful illustrations target individuals interested in recreational cooking and home entertaining. The collaborative style and content connects a growing demographic with creative individuals such as chefs, home cooks, designers, photographers and crafters, and encourages a laid-back approach to entertaining at home.

Synopsis:

This winter edition of Kinfolk—The Aged Issue—is dedicated to all things that get better with time: loved ones, food, family traditions and a good bottle of wine. The Kinfolk team explores how the older folks in our lives can teach us how to live more fully and how to embrace each new candle on our cake with style and grace. As some anonymous old chap once said, “Age is an issue of mind over matter. If you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter.” While many magazines pressure readers to hang on to youth, Kinfolk investigates how our lives are enriched by the people, meals and traditions of things past. One writer considers the inevitable day you realize you’re turning into your mother, while another reflects on the way life—like fruit—is about picking that perfectly ripe moment. Chefs share family recipes they’ve perfected over time, classic recipes updated for the modern era and a holiday menu that's easy to chew. There are gray hairs and salt-and-pepper beards, napping tips and ancient culinary tools. The connection? Everything in this issue gets better, or tastier, with age.
