Lake Isle’s 20th Anniversary Bash

To celebrate our last 20 years of cookbook publishing and our newest author, Vikas Khanna, Lake Isle authors, designers, photographers, editors, and dear friends came together for a night of great food and music at the Rubin Museum of Art. The hors d'oeuvres and drinks for the evening were provided by Vikas and his team, using many recipes from his upcoming cookbook, Flavors First. Special thanks to Mark Kleinfelder for the photos below. 


Lake Isle titles from throughout the years: from Rachael Ray to Senegalese cooking and gluten-free baking, Lake Isle has covered the cooking world gamut.
