There is something beautiful about the baking process. The way flour feels in your hands or the sound of eggs cracking on the edge of a bowl. Baking is a gathering of interesting materials, a mixed medium art piece of sorts, that ends in a cake instead of a canvas.
Thank you for your compliments. We have not been able to respond to comments for some reason (still trying to figure it out....) but here is some general info.
We shot this with a Canon 5D and 7D with EF 50mm f1.4 USM and EF 24-105mm f4L IS. We edited in Final Cut Pro and colored in Color and FCP. We wrote out the titles and edited them in Photoshop.
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
