when you think of cookbooks, you think lengthy instructions, too many ingredients, and never enough photos. Picture Cook by Katie Shelly is a refreshing change to that idea, offering instead step-by-step, full-colour illustrations in place of text. it's recipes without reading.
"Picture Cook distills every recipe into its most basic component, each step rendered as an enchanting line drawing." it will reinvent how you think about cooking and inspire you to use the ingredients as a "culinary blueprint, meant for improvisation, experimentation and play in the kitchen." after all that's what cooking is all about, use what you like and alter the recipe to fit you.
If you are interested in winning a copy of this inventive cookbook filled with over 50 recipes including omelets, lasagna, and chocolate cake, please leave a comment below or email firstname.lastname@example.org telling me your favourite go-to dish to prepare.
Contest closes Sunday March 23, 2014. (winner will be picked at random and contacted by me for mailing information. best of luck!)
