Volume 8 is a glimpse of Japan through the Kinfolk lens, an ode to a country and culture we admire. This special Japan issue focuses on its traditions and fun things to do (origami flowers, hand-dyed indigo, ikebana); delicious indigenous snacks (ramen, cherry blossom macarons, mochi, pickled cabbage); the harvest process behind green tea, wasabi and seaweed, along with interviews with some of the country’s finest makers and artisans who live and work in the country and abroad, with the usual focus on laid-back entertaining and great ideas for gatherings.
Kinfolk is the place to discover new things to cook, make and do. The 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.
