Review: ‘The Forest Feast Feast Gatherings’ by Erin Gleeson

The Forest Feast Gatherings

Just everything about The Forest Feast Gatherings is beautiful. The photography is stunning (can I move in with you please Erin Gleeson?) and the recipes on the artistically decorated watercolour pages are just such a beautiful touch. The ingredients are accessible, the recipes simple, and from the one or two I’ve tried out, absolutely delicious (although my heart did sink a little at the fact that she used tea bags for iced tea instead of loose leaf…).

That said, I did find a lot of the prose a bit grating as it was almost painfully middle class. It spoke of a level of lifestyle almost unattainable to the average citizen, which belies the availability and attainability of the ingredients. I think this might put off a lot of people who would have a lot to gain from a cookbook like this.

Still, the positives far outweighed that one negative, so I certainly won’t hold that against it. It’s a great addition to any kitchen and makes vegetarian entertaining simple and a joy.
