Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"An unusual, quirky book, with adorable illustrations, and solid, well tested recipes. A delight...This book is helping me cook more with my daughter." —TheKitchn.com
“Really great graphic” —Mark Bittman, The New York Times
“An ingenious cookbook” —Mark Wilson, Fast Company: Design
Library Journal
01/01/2014
Media designer Shelly's debut recalls Robert H. Loeb Jr.'s 1952 cookbook Date Bait, which used humor and simplified step-by-step illustrations to make cooking less daunting for midcentury teens. Shelly's contemporary pictorial cookbook is more minimal (there's no dating advice here) but equally unintimidating, and readers will find it hard not to smile at whimsical drawings of white lasagna, nutty quinoa, Immortality Smoothie, and other easy dishes. Those accustomed to glossy photographs may need coaxing to try these recipes, but they'll find them freeing as there's no risk of a disappointing comparison between page and plate. VERDICT A treat for visual learners, beginning readers, young people, new cooks, and anyone who enjoys graphic design.
