The Forest Feast introduces a visual approach to cooking. Photographer and designer Erin Gleeson uses only a few ingredients for her recipes, most of which are vegetarian. The local produce enthusiast aims to simplify the steps most often tied to cooking by doing away with complicated tricks and measurements.
Followers of The Forest Feast can put together spring salads, mushroom quinoa risottos and bloody mimosas in under four steps. The visual aids are moreover essential for foodies who have trouble following printed or hand-written directions, often confusing or stressful for entertainers who may be pressed for time.
Gleeson’s illustration-themed concept takes cooking in a new artistic direction. Its novelty will likely spur an offshoot of picturesque cooking projects.
