A Kinfolk Magazine gathering in Ghent.

“There’s life and vitality and messiness and ugliness—but real-ness.” MATTHEW ABRAMS When I heard that my friend Annemarie was hosting together with Suzy Castermans the sixth Kinfolk Magazine Gathering in Belgium, I absolutely wanted to be at this wonderful event. The Kinfolk Magazine Gatherings take place in more than 25 locations all over the world on exactly the same day. The idea is to bring together a community of like minded people who do not know each other, and to bring them together around a meal to embrace life’s unique qualities through innovative dishes, a warm community feel and a respect for nature’s whims. It is very important to feel on these events the Kinfolk principles of hospitality, simplicity and generosity.
