Anise Hyssop was named the 2019 Herb of the Year by the International Herb Association for excellence in all three categories: culinary, decorative and medicinal! I thought we should celebrate this designation with anise hyssop parfaits. Why are there three parfaits in this drawing? Breakfast, lunch, and dinner, of course!
After taking a semester of courses in multimodal communication a few years ago, I remained fairly confused about the concept....or at least a concrete definition of the term. At long last I think I have a solid example! This sketch (visual mode) was completely inspired by sound (auditory mode). The ear informing the eye....all in the name of food imagery. I feel like Newton, except I'm eating the apple.
So, what inspired this pepper jungle parrot habitat you ask? An episode of my fave podcast, The Splendid Table titled, Peppers, Onions & Butter (you had me at Peppers, Onions & Butter, legit).
The episode opens with host Francis Lam welcoming the listener into a room brought alive with teetering piles of French copper cookware, colourful macaws, a jungle of lush pepper plants. The visual achieved through sound with this episode transported me to an enchanted kitchen somewhere in New Jersey. I was driving when I first heard this description of Latin food scholar and chef Maricel Presilla’s cooking space (also the author of seminal cookbook on Latin cooking, Gran Cocina Latina: The Food of Latin America - if you don't have one, I highly recommend!). I pulled over, scribbled down some ideas in lip liner on a paper lunch bag that was (thankfully) in the passenger seat and peeled away, fervently inspired to sketch this rich, warm, beautifully described scene. Give the episode (#636) a listen, well worth it.
