the forest feast.

After several years working as a food photographer in New York City, shooting for cookbooks, magazines, restaurants, and The New York Times Dining section, Erin Gleeson moved to a cabin in the woods of Northern California, inspiring the forest feast. Inspired by all the local ingredients available in the bay area, erin creates simple, beautiful, healthy recipes that anyone can make and shares them on her blog the forest feast. but she doesn’t just create beautiful food — All the photos and illustrations are by Erin Gleeson, as well. Erin makes photographic recipe illustrations and watercolors to go with them, all based on local bay area produce. Here’s just a few to make you drool.
