    "The Kinfolk Table" has beautiful lay-out, printing, and photographs. It is one of the most beautiful food books I have seen in years. Unfortunately, the sum of its parts do not add up to the promise of the subtitle. The recipes are skimpy and for the most part minimalist and quirky and presented in isolation one from another. For recipes for small gatherings, I would go to recent books by Nigel Slater or David Tanis. Perhaps the cover photo best illustrates the problem of the book. The beautiful print says nothing about gatherings or even particularly about food. It pulls the viewer into a kind of Magritte-like solitude. I expect to see a mirror on the wall reflecting the back of the head of subject on the cover. In fact, the photos as a whole don't relate much to food or gatherings. A lot of them look like fashion shoots, and many of them of grunge fashion, to boot. The essays about the contributors also disappoint. Williams would have done better  to let them speak for themselves about food and friends, and simply edited their remarks. The reader often feel like he or she is on the outside looking in, instead of being drawn into an intimate gathering. 
    I compare this to what happens when friends or family gather for impromptu meals in which everyone contributes. It seems like a different world. We are "into" each other and the food brings us together. There is a lingering aroma of some of that in the book, but I wish Williams and his photographer had brought us the main event.
