Hello lovelies! I hope you’re all having a super weekend.
I’m having a little depart from interiors today but this is too cute and artsy and foody to not share!
I’ve just discovered the most delicious site – They Draw and Cook
(click on images to see the recipe in full size)
The website is the brainchild of Nate Padavick and Salli Swindell, a brother and sister design and illustration team, who started a blog to bring favourite recipes to life through illustration. Now the site is FILLED with recipes illustrated by artists from all around the world.
Ok, it’s not just cake, there’s all kinds of food!
Even if you’re not looking for a recipe, these cute/funny/sweet illustratations will probably make you want to get busy in the kitchen.
Their Find A Recipe and World Map features can help you narrow down your options. But you may end up spending hours selecting different options just to see more recipes and be entertained by the quirky drawings.
If all the hundreds (maybe thousands) of charming and yummy-looking recipes have your mind boggled as to what to pick, the Dial-A-Dinner feature picks for you. It works like a slot machine to select a starter, main and dessert from their many many recipes. FUN!
Are you loving They Draw and Cook? Yes, of course you are. Silly question.
Then you’ll be super excited to hear that they are going from blog to book!
The book contains 100+ recipes from drinks to desserts, with the illustrations ranging from cute to hilarious to elegant. It will be released in October but is already available for pre-order on Amazon. It is sure to be a hit!
Anyone else thinking Christmas present?
Don’t shoot! I know I know, even as I write this I am cringing at myself for mentioning the C-word in April, but just imagine how organised you will feel when this arrives through your door in October, just as you are starting to think about the holiday season.
Besides, it can also work for other types of presents for kids who are into cooking, adults who are afraid of fancy cooking, students going to university…
If you’re going to order it, you’ll get extra special nice brownie points for ordering through my Amazon store (found under the Fun Illustrations category). 🙂
No book cover image shown on Amazon yet, as they’ve just recently decided on it.
Shameless plug done, I am off to enjoy some sun rays. 😎
I hope you’re enjoying your weekend, darlings. Catch you in the week!
