My new cookbook, The Forest Feast, just came out and we are doing a GIVEAWAY!
A couple years ago, my husband and I left New York City for a cabin in the woods in Northern California. I had worked as a freelance food photographer in New York, so being in California meant starting over in a way. I decided I needed a new portfolio so I set out to create one at our new cabin, by cooking and shooting with local produce outside amongst the forest. This became my blog, The Forest Feast, and now this cookbook! The book is unique because it’s an art book/cookbook blend. The recipes are displayed visually so there’s not a lot of text to read through. Instead, my own handwriting, photography and watercolor illustrations guide you through the steps. The book features 100 vegetarian recipes that are super simple- most have fewer than 5 ingredients and are easy enough for a weeknight, yet unique enough for entertaining. For a little preview, watch my book trailer, HERE.
Below is one of my favorite recipes from the book. I make it often for dinner parties and it’s a hit! The dressing is super garlicky and the polenta “croutons” make it filling.
