look + cook

1672456-slide-cook-round-pan1672456-inline-750-cook-lasIt’s as if your cookbook has met up with your latest set of IKEA instructions. Check out this article from design.com that shows how designer/illustration Katie Shelly, author of Picture Cook: See. Make. Eat., boils a recipe down to its most basic elements. She shows you how to cook by following colorful illustrations instead of a list of ingredients and boring instructions. For example, her lasagna recipe is “a simple sketch that deconstructs lasagna into its discrete components.”

The idea is just by taking a look, you can cook. Lasagna? Just layer the cheese, noodles, sauce and meat to make the dish. Panzanella? Just follow the charted steps.

It’s infographic meets delish dish.
