I’m not sure there could be a cookbook better suited to Santa Cruz: The Forest Feast is beautiful, quirky, and unique, and is filled with recipes for gorgeous vegetarian food. This magical book comes from artist and photographer Erin Gleeson, who lives in the redwoods near Woodside. Gleeson pairs watercolor paintings with colorful photographs to create stunning step-by-step recipes for simple, delicious food that is super easy to make and great for entertaining. From Beer-Battered Artichoke Hearts to Corn & Cauliflower Tacos to Whole Apricot Handpies, culinary inspiration abounds. Don’t miss our event with Erin Gleeson on June 25th.
