"People do not buy goods and services.
They buy relations, stories and magic." - Seth Godin
A cookbook is more than a collection of recipes. A cookbook can transport you into a different place and perhaps even into a different life - one where you host more dinner parties, cook more pancakes for your kids, or eat more farmers market vegetables.
I am infinitely grateful to have worked on the following...
Compassionate Cuisine (May 7, 2019)
Compassionate Cuisine: 125 Plant-Based Recipes from Our Vegan Kitchen tells the story of New York’s Catskill Animal Sanctuary through its food. Its ingenious plant-based recipes are sure to become a staple in any cook’s repertoire. I was honored to contribute to this unique project as a photographer. (Published by Skyhorse)
The Complete Vegan Cookbook (April 2, 2019)
I'm thrilled to co-author this book with my talented friend and collaborator Rebecca Ffrench. The 356-page tome will bring 40-plus years of health-supportive culinary techniques and plant-centric recipes from Natural Gourmet Institute, the renown NYC culinary school, into the homes of thousands. In it, we cover NGI's ingredient selection criteria, knife skills, and basic cooking techniques, and highlight over 150 exciting recipes to make you fall in love with healthy cooking.

My first solo cookbook, Friendsgiving, was published on September 5, 2017, by the William Morrow imprint at HarperCollins Publishers. It features 25 holiday recipes - including hors d'oeuvres, cocktails and desserts - broken down into 5 globally-inspired menus. The book also contains party planning tips, my favorite music playlist, and more.
