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.
