Book Description

Erin Gleeson made her dream a reality when she left New York City and moved into a tiny cabin in a California forest in order to be closer to nature. The natural beauty of her surroundings and the abundance of local produce serve as the inspiration for The Forest Feast, based on her popular blog. Most of the book's 100 wholly vegetarian recipes call for only three or four ingredients and require very few steps, resulting in dishes that are fresh, wholesome, delicious, and stunning. Among the delightful recipes are eggplant tacos with brie and cilantro, rosemary shortbread, and blackberry negroni. Vibrant photographs, complemented by Erin's own fanciful watercolor illustrations and hand lettering, showcase the rustic simplicity of the dishes. Part cookbook, part art book, The Forest Feast will be as comfortable in the kitchen as on the coffee table.

Editorial Reviews


“As soon as I opened The Forest Feast and saw the pure creativity and simplicity of the recipes, I fell in love. I’m totally charmed by this book.”

“The dishes in this cookbook really fall into that sweet spot of being easy and healthy for a weeknight dinner yet pretty enough to serve while entertaining.”
(Apartment Therapy’s The Kitchn)

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspiration for simple, beautiful food! April 16, 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
What a great new cookbook! I've been following the "Forest Feast" blog since it began and am still charmed after all these months—that's saying a lot. I just received my copy of the book two days ago and am impressed with the results.

Erin's one-page recipes (with a facing full-page photo of each) are so visually stunning that I want to give each one a try. The idea of presenting a round, plate-sized slab of watermelon as a base for a salad topping is worth the price of the book all by itself. Yum.

I've made butternut apple soup before, but Butternut Pear Soup—garished with popcorn? Wow. And why have I never thought of making a Zucchini Accordion? It's a bonus that every recipe is vegetarian, healthy and quick, just my kind of cooking.

The true sign of a cookbook worth buying? My twenty-something daughter saw mine today and immediately said, "I want one!" So of course, I just ordered one for her and her sister . . .

Just loved this new cookbook!!! Very innovative recipes that are easy to make and look and taste fabulous. Tried a bunch and can't wait to try more! Favorites so far are the butternut pear soup, apricot bites, curried crispy carrots, avocado egg-in-a-hole and honey-pepper fresh figs! This cookbook is a "keeper".

3.0 out of 5 stars Great book for teens! November 1, 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The Forest Feast captivated my 14 year old! The recipes are simple (few ingredients) and the artwork is appealing.
While beginners in the kitchen can be overwhelmed by more traditional cookbooks, this one doesn't intimidate.
(Some reviewers found the layout difficult, it was straightforward enough for me.)
I don't think an experienced cook will find these vegetarian recipes too exciting.
They rely very heavily on cheese and garlic and more garlic!
But for a new cook, this could be a good introduction.

This book is beautifully illustrated and the recipes require just a few and normally basic ingredients which is a huge + in my book! I've already tried making a few of the recipes and they have been delicious so far. I love the creative cold salad options. Definitely perfect to make and bring to a summer picnic!

The Forest Feast reminds me that great, beautifully presented food does not have to take all day to prepare. The recipes that I have tried so far are delicious, they call for easily accessible ingredients, and are not at all intimidating.

As if that weren't enough, the book is absolutely gorgeous to look at. Rather than storing it in my cookbook library, The Forest Feast has become my newest coffee table book!

4.0 out of 5 stars Lovely book! July 13, 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Some of the previous reviews are a little silly. Who cares whether or not the author's home is a real cabin and that she has a grocery store nearby?! It's not a How to survive on twigs and berries in the wilderness book!

This book is a whimsical mix of quality ingredients and their natural loveliness and great taste! It's the simplistic art of eating good food that's grown in nature. I love it.

This is a great coffee table book! It's appealing to the eye and full of great simple recipes. A few of the ingredients she used are hard to come by in the Midwest at certain times of the year, but I'm sure I can find substitutions. It definitely has some great entertaining recipes that would take no time at all. I love the lemon basil mojitos! Flavored ice cubes are a brilliant touch!

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspiring and Simple April 23, 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Usually artsy books are not so creative with the actual food-but this book is not retreads-the recipies are fresh and different- and lend themselves to a freestyling confident cook as much as a cautious beginner. There is so much appreciation for the beauty of food, and color, that an impressive dish or two for entertaining will not require days of kitchen work, since it is really supposed to be about the friends. This woman has a true artistic ability, and I am happy to get to follow her bouncing ball to create some excellent paties.

4.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Book July 1, 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I chose this book because of a recent trip to Woodside,CA, whilst visiting our son from the UK .
The illustrations are very appealing and made a nice reminder of our visit for me.
There are new healthy and unusual recipes to try out for either home cooking or entertaining.
I think this book can make a very nice present for both vegetarian and non vegetarian friends or family.
