Professional food photographer, artist, and blogger Erin Gleeson has published her first cookbook, The Forest Feast, a collection of 100 CSA-inspired vegetarian recipes. Erin says, ” The recipes are displayed visually, in the same way that I present them on my blog, with my handwriting to describe the steps. It’s a unique blend of artbook and cookbook.”
About Erin Gleeson (from her website)
For many years I worked as a food photographer in New York City, shooting for cookbooks, magazines, top chefs and restaurants, The New York Times Dining section, and The James Beard Foundation. I also have an MFA in photography from SVA and I taught photography to college students at The Fashion Institute of Technology for 4 years. But in the summer of 2011, my husband Jonathan’s new job prompted a move to Northern California (just south of San Francisco) where we found a lovely cabin in the woods. Inspired by local, seasonal ingredients in my weekly CSA box, I create “photographic recipe illustrations” that are mostly vegetarian and laid out visually. I hope to inspire healthy recipe ideas anyone can make- dishes that are easy enough after a long day at work, yet impressive enough for a party. For more info on me, check out this interview.
