The Oregon Coast

All about &

Kinfolk is a publication about small gatherings. One of these small gatherings happened in Oregon and they made a video about it with Pikku Karhu ja Tiikerini as the soundtrack. I’m not in the video but you will see several guitar players, a banjo player, various attractive people, a pear salad, a pipe and a rustic picnic.

One of my favorite things to do is eat: cooking something special and delicious, sharing food with friends, talking with friends about food. There’s some wonderful food here in New Orleans but Kinfolk’s video reminded me of the rustic food I miss from England and Finland: crusty fresh bread, Wensleydale and cranberry, Finnish berry pie and blackberry juice, ale (or even better, home-brewed sahti), salmon soup or sausages cooked on the fire after a summer sauna. I miss all of that.

What next?

1. Read Kinfolk’s magazine, it’s filled with beautiful photography and stories

2. Listen to more music like Pikku Karhu ja Tiikerini

3. Bake a delicious loaf of brown butter banana bread (to be shared with friends!)
