The Forest Feast
After several years in the big city, I moved to a cabin in the woods of Northern California. Inspired by local ingredients I create simple, beautiful, healthy recipes anyone can make. Follow me on Twitter and Instagram @theforestfeast. Please feel free to re-post on your site, but will you please link and credit me and send me a link when it's up? Thanks! Send me an email.
I have just returned from a trip to the New York area for my first book events, to which I have been bringing snacks from the book, like these Apricot Bites! They are simple to make ahead, easy to travel with and great at room temperature- plus, you don’t even really need a napkin or plate!
I had a lot of fun doing a watercolor workshop and signing at Terrain in Westport, CT (see photos above…I made a skirt from my watercolors to wear to the event, and I made Jonathan a shirt with The Forest Feast logo!). Then I did a Q&A/signing at the Food Book Fair in Brooklyn at the gorgeous Wythe Hotel. (The fair continues this weekend with an awesome foodie line-up, if you’re in NYC).
My west coast book events kick off this weekend, with a signing at Omnivore Books in San Francisco on Saturday, plus several more in the Bay Area. Hope to see you there!

My cookbook officially comes out TODAY! I had my first book signing over the weekend and it was so fun to see it actually sold in a store. I am so excited to be able to share it now! More book signing events are listed here.

I made this little 90-second cookbook trailer to give you a feel for what the book is like. And if you want to buy it, check your local bookstore or you can purchase it online here.

Cheers!

Passover is next week, and I am looking forward to a trip to the east coast to spend it with family in New York (1st night) and Connecticut (2nd night). (Plus, I was able to fit a couple book launch events in!) Feel free to follow along with me on Instagram, @theforestfeast.
This tasty mousse recipe is from my new book, and I think it would be perfect for Passover if you are looking for a dessert idea to end your meal. I had a version of it at a friend’s house for dinner once and had to go home and recreate it! It’s SO easy, and can also be made in a bigger dish instead of individual cups. This recipe serves 4.
Other Passover recipe posts + ideas:
Our Seder in the woods (2012) (with Haroset + Farfel recipes)
Beet Haroset
Matzo Brei Scallion Pancakes
Enjoy! And Happy Passover :)

I love the colors of Spring! A rainbow of radishes came in my CSA this week mimicking the color of these spring lilacs and ranunculus flowers. Inspired by this Martha Stewart recipe, I made toasts covered in Radish Butter. I love how the creamy butter complements the spicy radish. And with a sprinkle of coarse salt (I use Maldon)- it’s divine for an afternoon snack. It’s SO easy and tasty- I just might smear it on a platter of crostini for our next party…
Enjoy!
