On Wednesday night we celebrated the publication of Diana Yen’s new book, A Simple Feast at Powerhouse Arena in Brooklyn, NY. Like the book, the event was beautiful, fun, and delicious. 150+ people came out to join in the festivities. Cherry Bombe magazine’s Claudia Wu and Kerry Diamond led a lively and humorous discussion with Diana about how the book was created, and why simplicity was key to the author’s vision for the book; not to mention the role of Diana’s angora bunny who serves as adorable composter for recipe testing food scraps. A festive reception followed the discussion, which included gorgeously styled and delectable food and drink from some of New York’s hottest artisans (Alphabet City Brewing Company, Moa Brewing Company, Crabbies, Good Egg, Cherry Bombe, Bedford Cheese Shop, New York Distilling Company, Confetti System, One Girl Cookies, Breckenridge Brewery). Highlights included handmade gin and cucumber cocktails and a cake modeled after the logo of the author’s company, The Jewels of New York. It was certainly a night to remember.
