Chef Erick Harcey of Victory 44 in Minneapolis believes that phenomenal food should be accessible to everyone, so he’s created a restaurant unlike any other in Minnesota. It’s a restaurant of chefs - only chefs. But they’re not ONLY chefs - they are the front of house staff, the servers and the restaurant managers. And their unique model, carefully selected menu items and seasonal ingredients let them keep costs low, putting the dining experience on center stage.
Sometimes laws are meant to be broken. Meet a passionate crew of illegal urban beekeepers in Brooklyn, New York working on their very first honey harvest for their restaurants. Find out why raising bees on NYC rooftops is important for Mother Earth. And be inspired to get into the illegal "bees"ness of urban beekeeping in your own backyard or rooftop. It's not only fun, but dangerous, especially if you don't like wearing bee suits!
Set in a secret location in East Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

Our promotional video for Issue 3 of Kinfolk Magazine (kinfolkmag.com), a quarterly publication based in Portland, OR. We are a growing community of artists, writers, designers, photographers, cooks and others who are interested in creating small gatherings and finding new things to cook, make, and do.
“These meals, moments and places make us who we are individually and collectively. This is the time of year when I mark the calendar for road trips and weekend getaways, and when I start to look forward to summer. But it’s also the time when I pause to enjoy the growing light in the evenings, throw open windows and doors to the spring air and invite friends over to celebrate the change in weather. The essays and personal stories focus on welcoming food, community and simplicity into our lives as regularly as possible and exploring simple weekday ideas that will bring us together. Our hope is that you’ll find small ways to build your community as you read of people working on their own.” —Editor Nathan Williams
