Finger Lakes Feast

I am very excited to officially announce that the cookbook my dad and I co-authored, along with my photographer brother, is available for purchase in stores and online. This cookbook was entirely a joint effort. The three of us combined our interests and talents and together made a product that none of us could have produced on our own. 

Finger Lakes Feast is what we call a storytelling cookbook. It is sprinkled with brilliant essays by my writer father on a multitude of topics, from local Upstate New York history and lore, to cheese and honey and flour production, to nature and agriculture, to the area's very best food artisans. They are really wonderful. 

Then there are recipes, of course, with beautiful images to accompany them. The dishes we feature were collected both from our own family recipe box as well as from the area's greatest chefs and restaurateurs and vineyard owners, who graciously provided us with their most divine recipes. They were all adapted for home cooks and cover a great range of flavors, with many of them featuring local, seasonal, fresh ingredients.

If you are interested in buying our book I would like to give you, my wonderful readers, an opportunity to have a signed copy of Finger Lakes Feast. Your best bet is to purchase the book on Amazon, which is selling the book for a price comparable to the author price. If you are indeed interested in an autographed copy please email me at and we can discuss the best way to do this. I have a few ideas.

Thank you so much in advance for reading and cooking along with us! I do hope you enjoy our book.


  1. Congratulations on your new cookbook! I wish you and your family the very best.

  2. Hi Kate! Just found your blog for the first time today, and I am smitten! I share your love of vintage, girly things, thrifting, cooking, and I too, am a pianist (I teach now). So excited to have "met" you. I'm adding Something Ivory to my list of favorites :-)!


Your comments bring me joy! I do my best to respond to each one either on the blog or via email (if your email is linked to your comment). Thank you for visiting Something Ivory.
