BACK in the frame After three years of waiting in their temporary location on Wordsworth Street, Eco Frame & Mirror finally reclaims Colombo St as its permanent home. In a brand-new, purpose-built building, Eco Frame & Mirror have reunited their workshop and showroom and have a larger showroom space which enables them to showcase their large display of mirrors and mouldings. The main entrance, flanked by large windows displaying their impressive range of antique and contemporary mirrors, is accessible at 394 Colombo St. A mirror-clad hallway greets customers entering from the rear of the building where there is free off-street parking accessible from Wordsworth St. For quality picture framing, mirrors and photo restoration, combined with consistently friendly and knowledgeable service, Eco Frame & Mirror looks forward to welcoming you to their new home just around the corner from their former temporary premises.

The Kinfolk Table by Nathan Williams, Photographs by Parker Fitzgerald / Artisan Books

It was inevitable that the creators of indie magazine Kinfolk would eventually produce a book, which expands upon what their magazine celebrates in their quarterly issues: their love of small gatherings centred around lovingly prepared food. Kinfolk founder and editor Nathan Williams and his small team take the reader on an enriching journey from Kinfolk’s home city of Portland to New York and across the Atlantic to Copenhagen and the English countryside. We are warmly invited into over 50 homes of a selection of Williams’ friends and family, and an eclectic mix of contributing creatives ranging from writers to artists, restauranteurs to interior designers, organic farmers to florists - many of whom Williams believes owe at least part of their

success of their careers to the balance and humility these simple rituals and traditions bring them. Delving into the homes and lives of people - young and old - who either live alone, as couples or in large family clans, recipes range from simple open sandwiches and delicious salads to more complex and exotic delicacies to delight the palette, like ginger ice cream and kumquat compote, with a mix of light and hearty meals for one or several people. Filled with beautifully composed images illustrating the context where food is at once a central part, yet merely a conduit through which communities of friends and families can connect, converse and commune. This is one cookbook that deserves pride of place in every kitchen worth its salt.
