kinda inspired: forest feast

Watermelon Salad
Lately, I've been feeling inspired by the illustrations and styling of The Forest Feast. The blog, and recently released cookbook, features the photos and illustrations of Erin Gleeson. She worked as a professional food photographer in NY before moving to the woods of Northern California, where she was inspired to start her blog as a way to capture the abundance of fresh, local produce.


Her simple, seasonal recipes are brought to life with her watercolor illustrations and hand lettering.  The use of color and natural elements in her gorgeous photos make everything incredibly appealing, and the short ingredient lists keep the recipes approachable and easy.
Snap Pea Pasta
Persimmon and Brie
Even very simple recipes seem more enticing when accompanied with beautiful watercolors. I think this looks delicious, and I don't even really like persimmons!

Blackberry Negroni
And there's cocktails! What more could you ask for?

For more on the Forest Feast, check out the blog, the book, or this interview with the author (featuring photos of her gorgeous cabin!).
