A must-read for every slow-life lover who revels in simple yet unique pleasures with family and friends. KINFOLK, founded in 2011, is the leading magazine for aficionados of slow lifestyle. Like a rare wine from a local vineyard, it takes time to mature and enchants with its complexity of taste.

The KINFOLK Table is an equally extraordinary cookbook filled with fascinating pictures, recipes and stories told by lovers of cooking from all over the world. Its aim is to underline and capture, with its watchful and sensitive eye, what’s the most important in sharing a meal: people, relations and the atmosphere around a table. The book mirrors the philosophy guiding the founders of KINFOLK: life tasting should be all about comfort, simplicity, slow pace and meaningfulness. We couldn’t agree more!





Eat, drink, relax…the Soho House way! “We know how to make people feel at home, how to cook food they love, how to make a room stylish but welcoming, how to throw a party, get the lighting right, mix a cocktail, design a bedroom and build an art collection” – says Nick Jones, the founder of Soho House. Dreaming of a contemporary and stylish life? It’s time to do some reading!


In the beginning, there was a blog. Then, a blog has given rise to a publishing house and an international group of creators. Eventually, everything revolves around a creative way of living. How do friends of our friends live and work? If you want to find out, go to Freunde von Freunden (a boost of energy guaranteed on gray Monday mornings – something we’ve become totally addicted to in our editorial office!). We also warmly recommend you to take a look at a beautifully designed album created for the enjoyment of fans of paper, original interiors and inspiring stories. A book simply made to become a gift!



My love of apples knows no limits. When I’m sad, I reach for the bowl on the kitchen table, I peel the slightly wrinkled skin, chop the flesh, add cinnamon and sugar. I make an apple crumble cake. Or I core the fruit, fill it with eggnog, and bake it whole.”* Eliza Mórawska, the author of the White Plate blog shares her love of apples in this deliciously mouth-watering cookbook. Her love is so strong that the book has been printed on a paper recycled from apple cores! "On Apples" presents us with 40 author’s recipes and stunning photographs taken by Krzysztof Kozanowski.
