Mrs. Charles Darwin’s Recipe Book

A new book is coming out with Emma Darwin's recipes. The wife of Charles Darwin and Daughter of the Wedgewood china family. Apparently quite the famous hostess and cook.

For me, there are three special highlights in this book.
Photographs by Adam Forgash (brother)
Recipes executed by Jonathan Forgash
Editor: Signe Bergstrom (sister in law)

Signe was the editor on this book and asked Adam and me to join the project. Lots of fun and my first book credit. We worked long and hard over two days with the book designer, Sara Morgan Karp, to cook, style and shoot the images. A fun experience and interesting to watch my brother work with Sara to create the layout and technical aspects of each image.
