One of the important principles of the arts and crafts movement was the lifestyle it represented. The natural use of materials, the flow of space, the abundant fresh air all represented a slow, graceful and organic way of living. After 100 years as one of the arts and crafts most important architectural landmarks, The Gamble House Cookbook portrays this lifestyle through Mrs. Gamble’s own recipes in her original handwriting reinterpreted for today by celebrity chef Mark Peel.

Photographer Meg McComb, a former restauranteur and chef, began providing hand-tipped photocards to her culinary friends in the mid-90s. Attention to detail, visual ingenuity and an eye for composition easily combined with Meg's travels abroad and around local kitchens and gardens.
