Possibly the prettiest culinary/entertaining magazine to hit the virtual newsstand: Kinfolk. According to peripatetic editor Nathan Williams: "We are a growing community of artists with a shared interest in small gatherings and a natural approach to entertaining. We wanted to share ideas on the art of creating a table that looks like it just ended up that way—uncontrived, with a focus on the food served and the friends and family sharing it." The magazine is published biannually and will also be available in print form for $39.95 (alas, the first issue is sold out); go to Kinfolk for more information.
