Our recipe video of classic pesto for 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.
The recipe is inspired by 101 Cookbooks (101cookbooks.com), an online cookbook collection led by Heidi Swanson (heidiswanson.com) interested in natural, whole foods and ingredients. The original article, "How to Make Pesto like an Italian Grandmother Recipe," can be found here: kinfo.lk/16g7aG1
"If you've ever tasted pesto in Italy you know that the pesto here in the United States just isn't the same. I received a lesson in how to make pesto from a real Italian grandmother last week and now I understand the difference and what makes it so." —Heidi Swanson

Now, I'm in Tokyo. I was struck by strong earthquake when I was preparing for the final check. Many friends around the world worried about my safety. I was so touched. My family, me and Tokyo are OK. But the people of disaster area are in deep sorrow still now. Not only that, they spend their days worrying about aftershocks, tsunami and nuclear reactor problem. I want to support the people through every means I can. And, I hope that they resume peaceful everyday life as soon as possible.
We have received warm support from all over the world. Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart.
A biologist once told a story about his Harvard professor named Louis Agassiz, who taught him a simple habit to help him see more than he ever dreamed. The lesson he learned is also the secret to lifelong and life-changing Bible reading: keep looking.
One reason we see so little when we read the Bible is that we do not give ourselves long enough to look. John Piper shares the story “Agassiz and the Fish” in his new book Reading the Bible Supernaturally. In the seemingly ordinary act of reading the Bible, something miraculous happens: God gives us new eyes to see more of him — if we are willing to slow down and keep looking.
