Format: Hardcover
Subtitled 'A Year of Stories & Recipes to Savor & Share' (American spelling retained) that sums up the book in a nutshell. A fresh take on classic with stories that unfold along the way providing a journey of inspiration. Any occasion where people sit to eat is a feast. This book provides simple ideas to enjoy on any occasion. It's about the joys of eating together and sharing stories. A wonderful concept that is well realised. From rooftop barbecues to tea parties, family get togethers to date night, this book provides sustenance not only for the stomach but also nourishment for the soul. There's a wonderful apple chart, which shows how to use different varieties of apples. This book is not meat, gluten or allergy free.

Beautiful, Informative, & Delicious! 23 May 2014
By Liss - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I love this cookbook. It's beautiful to flip through, the photos are incredible, the charts and tips are super helpful - like the "well-stocked pantry" chart or the "herbs and spices" chart outlining the flavors and what they go well with. Just looking through the recipes I started planning out my week's meals from this book.

So the important stuff, the recipes! I've only tried a few so far, but they are super unique, delish, and even fun, like the art deco cookies. The maple braised beef stew is amazing, and the goat cheese pancakes my new favorite breakfast treat. There's a mix of everything, mains and sides, from savory to sweet, and even drinks. I definitely recommend this for someone looking for a cookbook that's a bit more special!

Get seasonally inspired for selecting and sharing food with friends in style 28 May 2014
By Andre S. - Published on
Format: Hardcover
So much more than just another cookbook…

With recipes that cater to each season, A Simple Feast inspires the reader not only to try delicious, seasonal and simple recipes but also provides guidance on where to find the best and freshest ingredients and how to plate and style food in a modern fashion.

Based on her extensive experience, Diana has shared a mouthwatering collection of recipes that guarantee to impress, no matter if you’re having friends over for a BBQ or preparing a home-cooked meal for your special one.

One might be easily tempted to get a second copy, after holding A Simple Feast in hand for the first time,
Number #1 for day to day use in the kitchen (with notes and comments) and when out grocery shopping
Number #2 remains on the bookshelf as decorative masterpiece of modern food styling

Delectable Edibles! 7 Nov. 2014
By The Bookend Family - Published on
Format: Hardcover
What perfect timing to run across this book, right when I'm preparing my Thanksgiving menu, but please don't limit this book just to this event. This book is filled with so many delectable edibles made with fresh healthy core foods. Just reading the Table of Contents can make anyone drool, but this book is not just about the recipes. This book is also filled with wonderful heart felt stories. The combination of which is striking and makes for a great edition to be added to any kitchen.

I do want to touch on a sampling of the recipes so that you get the proper idea. First the contents are split as Brown Lunch Bag, Treasure Hunt, Harvest Celebration, Winter Snow Day, Tapping the Maple Tree, Breakfast in Bed, Tea Party, Date Night, Rooftop BBQ, and the list goes on. You get the idea? Now the actual recipes (YUMMY!); here are some of my favorites, this is a micro list compared to what is contained within this book' Grilled Fennel and Watermelon Salad, Fried Hominy with Chile and Lime, Turkish-Style Eggs with Yogurt, Cumin Glazed Carrots, Pecan Pie with Salted Maple Ice Cream, Shaved Brussels Sprout Salad with Cranberries and Almonds, Spice-Rubbed Steak and Mango Chutney Crostini, Wild Mushroom Risotto with Caramelized Leeks and again the list goes on and on. I highly recommend foodies go get this book now.

Unique stories & recipes for home cooking 26 May 2014
By TAY - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I really enjoyed reading the author's journey into her seasonally based home cooking in New York. This book tells the stories in selecting fresh ingredients, simplicity and elegance of everyday meals. I like to try some of the new recipes such as poached salmon salad, stuffed lamb shoulder, and salted maple ice cream. Highly recommend this book to guys willing to venture into home cooking.

A feast not just for the stomach but for the eyes as well. 29 May 2014
By D. Shiu - Published on
Format: Hardcover
What's not to love about this cookbook? It has an air of sophistication with a side of rustic and down to earth tones. Starting the first page the author takes you on a journey. From apple picking and drinking hot cocoa to reminiscing the times of bringing a bag lunch to school, you truly feel as if you're conversing and exchanging stories with a good friend. The careful selection of the plating, setting, and utensils to complement each recipe makes this a cookbook one would proudly display on their shelf and/or gift to a loved one. Love, love, love.
