Erin Gleeson, the New York Times bestselling author of The Forest Feast, returns with a gorgeously illustrated cookbook packed with 100 brand-new simple vegetarian recipes designed for relaxed entertaining.

When food photographer and stylist Erin Gleeson left New York City to live in a cabin in the woods of northern California, she started the blog The Forest Feast to document her vegetable-centric, seasonal approach to cooking. Her readers are drawn to her healthy recipes that anyone can make--dishes that are easy enough to prepare after a long day at work, yet impressive enough for a party--as well as to her visually stunning photography and watercolors. Erin handwrites each recipe over her photos to create diagram-like, step-by-step instructions that are vibrant, unique, and most important, easy to cook from.

Erin's recipes have always been ideal for entertaining, but now in The Forest Feast Gatherings she offers detailed guidance on hosting casual, yet thoughtful, get-togethers from start to finish with recipes that serve 6 to 8. The book offers 100 new, innovative vegetarian recipes, along with some fan favorites from the blog, arranged in a series of artfully designed menus that are tailored around specific occasions and seasons--whether a summer dinner party, a laid-back brunch, a vegan and gluten-free gathering, or holiday cocktails. Sample recipes include:

Pomegranate Punch Quinoa Crunch Salad Floral Summer Rolls Vietnamese Lentil Tacos Kale-Hazelnut Salad Pear-Thyme Galettes

Menus feature recipes for drinks, appetizers, entrees, side dishes, and desserts, accented by quick decorating ideas for flower arrangements, signage, and table settings.

Lushly illustrated with hundreds of watercolor drawings and photographs, The Forest Feast Gatherings is an inspiring reference for anyone who wants to share good food with good friends, simply, easily, and beautifully.

This book isn't just for vegetarians or gatherings. It is a feast for your eyes. Beautiful layout with fairly simple recipes and ingredients you're likely to have on hand. I love the use of backyard or trail or forest foliage to decorate with and the use of no matching plates.
This would make a great gift book!

If you love a cookbook with fantastic pictures, whoa boy, is this book for you! If you love to entertain as well then The Forest Feast by Erin Gleeson (her blog shares the same name as the book) is your cookbook soul mate. The recipes are not organized by type, but by party (Spring Feast, Picnic, Iced Tea Party, etc.) They are also all vegetarian so brace yourself if you believe a party isn't a party without some kind of roasted animal. The recipes are simple yet varied and the pictures of the Santa Cruz mountains are to die for.
