Men at work

Mike Friton is a freelance shoemaker, weaver, paper sculptor and innovator with over 30 years of experience at Nike. His innovations are responsible for many elements of athletic footwear that people wear today. Each of his crafts informs one another and he is constantly exploring the fringes of his field. Mike's work is a great example of how non-traditional methods of exploring one's craft can lead to unique end results.

    Take a look at this story of an amazing chef and historian from Poland. Feedback is appreciated :)

    He searches through very first Polish cookbooks and recreates dishes that are long-forgotten. If you like it, we would be eternally grateful if you could share it with your food friends.

    Warm wishes!
