TODAY IN SF! Come by Omnivore Books where I’ll be doing my first book signing for #forestfeastmediterranean from 3-4pm (Saturday 9/14). The book doesn’t actually come out until next week but they’ll have early copies. Hope to see you there!
(PS— this pic is from my signing there in 2014 for my first book when I was pregnant with Ezra. Giant kindergartener Ezra will be there today, and Max too. Kids welcome!)
I think some of our friends thought we were crazy to travel for 3 months through Europe with a toddler and a baby while shooting #ForestFeastMediterranean— and for sure we had our moments, but overall it was fun and so worth it!
It does change the way you travel, and can be tough when the kids need to get home for a nap and I want to stop every 5 minutes to take a photo. Some days we had to do a nap on the go. Here’s the photo of Lisbon that’s published in the book. Swipe for the #behindthescenes shot of me taking that photo, with a large sleeping baby strapped to my chest :) (Thanks to our friend @booksandbourbon for the pic!!)
A new little recipe video on my YouTube channel: Melon with Tajin & Mint. This is the thing to make when people are coming over in 5 minutes and you haven’t cleaned the living room up yet 🙋🏻♀️🤦🏻♀️! So so easy, tasty, colorful and festive...only 3 ingredients. This is great with all that sweet late-summer melon at the markets now. Cheers! Subscribe at YouTube.com/theforestfeastcooks
Thanks @mothermag for featuring this crudités recipe today (and several others) from #forestfeastmediterranean... plus a little interview about our family’s 3-month trip around the Mediterranean. Link in stories & at mothermag.com !
#forestfeastmediterranean comes out a week from today!!!
We visited our friend’s farm today after school and brought home lots of goodies! The boys picked all the cherry tomatoes (and Max ate half of them on the way home). We are having a book event and cooking workshop with kids at the farm this weekend for #forestfeastmediterranean (which comes out next week!!!) and will be picking tomatoes & apples to cook with, so we were scouting what other ingredients will be ready to pick as well.
Having grown up on an apple orchard, there is NOTHING like the flavor of a golden delicious right off the tree. 💥🍏 Takes me right back.
Happy weekend! ✨
There’s probably nothing I love more than a cocktail and a good meal on the water! @jackproz knows this about me, which is why he is letting me live my best life in the warm fall sunshine with my glass of rosé while he bounces the baby to sleep on the front pack down the beach!
This was taken in dreamy Nice, France, during our 3-month trip while shooting #ForestFeastMediterranean cookbook. This delicious pizza made its way into the book in the form of eggplant pizzette with Burrata, honey and red chili flakes, and I can’t wait to share it with you when the book comes out 9/17!! #tbt
I’ll take one of each, please.
Kid-free and feeling festive in the Berkshires this weekend for our good friends’ wedding! @jackproz is the most fun wedding date ever. He loves the dance floor and will even wear matching outfits with me 🤣(not the first time!). Excited to celebrate with you #michemollzeltov !!!
