The Forest Feast

About Erin & The Forest Feast:

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.

In addition to this blog, I blog for Better Homes and Gardens and I just finished my first cookbook, The Forest Feast, which will be published by Abrams (April 2014). I also work as a freelance food photographer, and you can see that work on my personal webpage.

From our neck of the woods to yours, Welcome to The Forest Feast!
