Adrian Harris and Jeremy Inglett are the irreverent and irresistible duo behind the Food Gays, a blog and brand that promotes colorfully vibrant cooking. Think of the Food Gays as today’s Ina and Jeffrey Garten—if they were young gay men!
The Food Gays reflect how so many millennials want to eat and cook today—food full of global flavors, veggie rich, and most of all, uncomplicated. From appetizers to desserts (but hold those big Sunday roasts—that’s not their speed), this book comprises 90-plus recipes and a gorgeous photo for each one. Fans who love the flavors and aesthetics behind cookbooks from Donna Hay, Yotam Ottolenghi and of course, Ina Garten, will love the Food Gays—and will relate to them.
Not everyone can see a pretty picture and replicate it, but Harris and Inglett threw themselves into recipe development and food photography with their blog in 2012, and their creativity and social media numbers soared. Now, with over 60,000 Instagram followers, partnerships with powerful brands like Cuisinart, Happy Planet and Urban Cultivator, as well as recipe development for publications like Martha Stewart Living and Food & Wine, and a new deal with Gusto (the TV division of Canada’s Bell Media), they support themselves solely through content creation and food photography. Notable fans of the Food Gays include Gwyneth Paltrow, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Zac Posen and Nigella Lawson!
Harris and Inglett develop recipes that are joyful to behold and downright delicious. They strive for balance, so while their repertoire includes a fabulous collection of plant-forward dishes such as Roasted Five-Spice Cauliflower; Blackberry, Brie and Arugula Crostini with Honey and Lavender; and Blistered Tomato Soup, they also can’t resist comfort-food riffs like oozy Mac and Cheese Eggs Benny; tangy, Sweet and Sticky Chicken with Basil and Lime; creamy No Bake Boozy Blueberry Cheesecake; and a whole lot more.
