New York Timesbestselling author Erin Gleeson celebrates the art of vegetarian entertaining withThe Forest FeastGatherings, 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.
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:
Quinoa Crunch Salad
Floral Summer Rolls
Vietnamese Lentil Tacos
And dozens more!
Gleeson handwrites each recipe over her photos to create diagram-like, step-by-step instructions that are vibrant, unique, and most importantly, easy to cook from. Gleeson’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 six to eight.
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, this is an inspiring reference for anyone who wants to share good food with good friends, simply, easily, and beautifully.
