Review

“Diana Yen and The Jewels of New York share a fresh take on the classics in their new book A Simple Feast. With their beautiful way of seeing, they elevate the everyday to the exquisite—the photographs inspire and the recipes satisfy. It doesn't get better than that.”—Melissa Hamilton and Christopher Hirsheimer, authors of Canal House Cooks Every Day
 
A Simple Feast celebrates an unexpected and refreshing approach to eating in New York and beyond. Forget cab rides, long queues and steep bills—instead think bicycle baskets full of local produce, farmers markets, rural adventures, and wonderfully simple seasonal meals.”—Nathan Williams, author of The Kinfolk Table

About the Author

Founded in 2009 and led by DIANA YEN, The Jewels of New York is a multidisciplinary creative studio that combines the love of cooking with the beauty of everyday things. The studio aims to uncover the hidden treasures New York has to offer and share them with others through seasonally based cooking. Diana strives to bring the same sense of warmth found in good home cooking to her clients through catering and food consultation services. Diana's projects with leading lifestyle magazines (Food and Wine, Better Homes and Gardens, and Kinfolk, to name a few) and design-savvy clients (Martha Stewart, West Elm, and Design*Sponge among them) focus on the simplicity and elegance of everyday meals. With a background in home and lifestyle design, Diana brings a sense of beauty and community to the table.

I love this cookbook. It's beautiful to flip through, the photos are incredible, the charts and tips are super helpful - like the "well-stocked pantry" chart or the "herbs and spices" chart outlining the flavors and what they go well with. Just looking through the recipes I started planning out my week's meals from this book.

So the important stuff, the recipes! I've only tried a few so far, but they are super unique, delish, and even fun, like the art deco cookies. The maple braised beef stew is amazing, and the goat cheese pancakes my new favorite breakfast treat. There's a mix of everything, mains and sides, from savory to sweet, and even drinks. I definitely recommend this for someone looking for a cookbook that's a bit more special!

So much more than just another cookbook…

With recipes that cater to each season, A Simple Feast inspires the reader not only to try delicious, seasonal and simple recipes but also provides guidance on where to find the best and freshest ingredients and how to plate and style food in a modern fashion.

Based on her extensive experience, Diana has shared a mouthwatering collection of recipes that guarantee to impress, no matter if you’re having friends over for a BBQ or preparing a home-cooked meal for your special one.

One might be easily tempted to get a second copy, after holding A Simple Feast in hand for the first time,
Number #1 for day to day use in the kitchen (with notes and comments) and when out grocery shopping
Number #2 remains on the bookshelf as decorative masterpiece of modern food styling

I loveee this book! I finally got to try my first dish the other day-turkish style eggs. I've never had greek yogurt in a savory way with eggs so I thought the combination was delicious, impressive and most of all super easy. It's a great book to entertain with and just beautiful to have on your coffee table.

I really enjoyed reading the author's journey into her seasonally based home cooking in New York. This book tells the stories in selecting fresh ingredients, simplicity and elegance of everyday meals. I like to try some of the new recipes such as poached salmon salad, stuffed lamb shoulder, and salted maple ice cream. Highly recommend this book to guys willing to venture into home cooking.
