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

In the second film for our Tellason series we're featuring Jeremy Tooker. Jeremy is a coffee craftsman and the owner of Four Barrel Coffee in San Francisco. He is dedicated to sourcing the best seasonal single-farm-origin beans from around the world and coupling that with impeccable roasting. We also learned that he is a tireless entrepreneur who regularly works 60-80 hours a week in pursuit of the perfect cup of coffee.
Allready in front of Toronto based Glory Hole Doughnuts Shop you're welcomed by a sweet breeze which magically touches your desire for this typical american Pastry. If you enter the location which lies on the cities upcoming Queen Street West you would never think that it's owner Ashley once hated the world of Pastry. But she also always loved to have a good coffee, a cigarette and a doughnut. So when she thought about opening up her first own business it came close to hand that it should have something to do with Doughnuts.
2 years later Glory Hole is an established landmark which attracts customers from the neighborhood as well as people coming from the suburbs to get a package for their families.

On the Hello, Again Tour, we discovered Cacao Prieto, a chocolate shop on the streets of Red Hook, Brooklyn. After owner Daniel Prieto Preston invited us in for a taste of his goods, we realized the shop offered much more than mere confection.
