Graber Family Paintings, Prints, Pottery, and Books
Among our most popular items right now is The Daily Feast: Everyday Meals We Love to Share (Good Books, 2012), edited by 81-year-old family matriarch Esther Rose Graber. The 250-page cookbook (see photo at right) features not just individual recipes but full menus for soup suppers, guest meals, and celebratory feasts, and includes culinary delights from all over the world -- wherever Graber family members have lived (Puerto Rico, India, Cambodia, Bulgaria, New Zealand, England, Cuba, the western United States, etc.). The book retails for $29.95, and all of our copies are autographed by Mom Graber as well as several of the sisters.

Ann began her career as a watercolorist and graphic designer, and now serves as an architectural and interior design consultant in the Michiana area. Esther Rose Graber, the family matriarch and artistic mentor, is well known in Puerto Rico and the United States for her warm watercolors depicting family life and the Puerto Rican landscape. Esther and her husband Ron, a surgeon, taught all of their children to see the light dancing off of palm leaves, the plethora of colors in a simple shadow, and the shimmering glow of an evening pond.
