There are now 4 cookbooks in the Forest Feast series!

  • THE FOREST FEAST (2014): My first book, a dream project! Now a NY Times Bestseller.

  • THE FOREST FEAST FOR KIDS (2016): An adaptation of the first book, for kids to cook from.

  • THE FOREST FEAST GATHERINGS (2016): An all-new follow-up to the first book, designed for entertaining.

  • THE FOREST FEAST MEDITERRANEAN (September 2019): Recipes and travel photos inspired by a 3-month trip in Europe.

  • The 5th cookbook, tentatively titled The Forest Feast Road Trip, inspired by California, is currently slated for 2021!

These are art-book cookbooks that are super visual, have minimal text, and are loaded with photography and watercolors. The recipes are all vegetarian with few ingredients and are simple to make.


My first cookbook, The Forest Feast, was released Spring 2014 and is now a New York Times Best Seller. I did all the recipes, photos, illustration and hand lettering in it. It features 100 simple vegetarian recipes- a few blog favorites, but mostly brand new ones. The recipes are displayed visually, in the same way that I present them on this blog, with my handwriting to describe the steps. It’s a unique blend of artbook and cookbook- I hope you have lots of fun cooking with it! Share dishes you’ve made on Instagram (or elsewhere) with the hashtag #theforestfeast and tag me @theforestfeast.

My second cookbook, The Forest Feast for Kids, was released February 2016 and is an adapted version of my first book for kids. It includes the most kid-friendly favorites from The Forest Feast, along with 20 new recipes, plus ideas for kids’ parties and easy-to-follow instructions on techniques, measurements, and other helpful kitchen aides. It’s designed for kids cook from it themselves, with an emphasis on colorful produce.

My third cookbook, The Forest Feast Gatherings (a follow-up to The Forest Feast), is an entertaining-focused book with vegetarian menus for parties. It was released September 2016 and has all new material (with a few blog favorites.)

*The Forest Feast is also available in DutchGermanFrench Italian, Portuguese, Korean, Chinese and Polish.
