I came across a really cool site today. Brings together both my ‘loves’ – art and food. Check this out. They Draw and Cook is a supposedly a food site where all the recipes have been hand or digitally drawn. Originally by Nate Padavick and Salli Swindell, a brother and sister design and illustration team. But now, the site has been thrown open to others and there are a whole lot of artists who have dipped right in to bring together their love for art and food.
In general it’s a visual feast, the illustrations are delightful; in a whole range of styles, telling as much of a story as educating you on a recipe.
To be honest, it’s kind of tough to tell the recipe sometimes, so someone who is going there strictly for the food and recipes will be a bit disappointed. But I love it for the art! Plus it has links to the sites of all the wonderful artists featured.
And incidentally that’s one more on my TO DO list. I’m going to do one recipe and submit. Let’s see.
