I am seriously addicted to this new site: They Draw and Cook. It is so much fun browsing through all the gorgeous illustrated recipes. I’m such a visual person and love seeing different ways of displaying information. Take a look at They Draw and Cook – I’m sure you’ll love it as well!
Here’s a bit of a background on how the site came to be: Nate Padavick and Salli Swindell are a brother and sister design and illustration team who have been working together for over 10 years as Studio SSS. They have created hundreds of magazine and book illustrations, thousands of greeting card designs, and, of course, many super tasty illustrated recipes!
Nate and Salli came up with this idea while on a family vacation. Nate was trying to recreate a favorite dish – fettucine with figs in a balsamic butter sauce – while Salli sat at the counter with her watercolors painting the crate of figs. This led them to realize how fun it was to illustrate food. They then started talking about creating a little recipe book for friends, family, and clients. They asked some of their artist pals to help, but never got enough recipes to justify printing a book, so Nate built a quick blog and Salli started to spread the word – it spread fast! They Draw & Cook now contains the biggest and best collection of illustrated recipes anywhere.
And here are some of the gorgeous illustrated recipes that you can find on their site:
