“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

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!
I do want to touch on a sampling of the recipes so that you get the proper idea. First the contents are split as Brown Lunch Bag, Treasure Hunt, Harvest Celebration, Winter Snow Day, Tapping the Maple Tree, Breakfast in Bed, Tea Party, Date Night, Rooftop BBQ, and the list goes on. You get the idea? Now the actual recipes (YUMMY!); here are some of my favorites, this is a micro list compared to what is contained within this book' Grilled Fennel and Watermelon Salad, Fried Hominy with Chile and Lime, Turkish-Style Eggs with Yogurt, Cumin Glazed Carrots, Pecan Pie with Salted Maple Ice Cream, Shaved Brussels Sprout Salad with Cranberries and Almonds, Spice-Rubbed Steak and Mango Chutney Crostini, Wild Mushroom Risotto with Caramelized Leeks and again the list goes on and on. I highly recommend foodies go get this book now.

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
