I was thrilled to come home today to a couple of boxes titled Workman Publishing. That could only mean one thing...Kinfolk Table has finally hit Boston General Store. I poured myself a glass of wine and started my journey through one of the best cookbooks I've ever seen.
Reading the introduction by Nathan Williams (co-founder of Kinfolk) gave me a renewed sense of what it means to "entertain". It is about great friends and great food. Some where along the way we get lost in the preparations to make a really elaborate evening. We lose sight in what the night is really about, enjoying each others company.
My new years resolution was to simplify my life and I think along with that it will be to re-focus myefforts and keep family and friends even closer. I invite everyone to take a look at this book (even if it isn't purchased at BGS). I promise it will be well worth the 35 dollars.

People who've followed along on our journey know how important makers are to Boston General Store.
When the shop first launched online, the idea was to create a small assortment of products from around the world featuring craftsmen who truly cared about their trade. Today, four years after opening the business, we still carry almost all of the items from that original collection, speaking to the significance these makers have had in the continued success of BGS.
Spring isn’t only a season of growth, it’s also a season of anticipation. It’s almost like a buffer zone between the long, dark, hostile winter and the bright, shining weather of the summer – at least that’s the story here in New England. The flowers start to bloom, birds are chirping, and thank goodness for clocks moving forward because this is about the time we start to beg for more sunshine.
So, with nature slowly getting us ready for all those lazy beach days and trips to the Cape, it’s time to start thinking about one thing and one thing only...the annual ritual of spring cleaning.
There comes a moment when keeping good news to yourself is impossible. And because we're ready to burst at the seams, literally and figuratively, we'll cut to the chase.
Boston General Store is growing.
Yes, this is our official announcement that we'll be opening a second permanent home in Dedham next month, made possible after a first-year success that wouldn't have happened without help from a lot of people.
