Cappelletti! Typical pasta from Emilia-Romagna, my home-region. In my family we used to make them all together for Christmas and cook them in broth, which is also the way I prefer to eat them! I need to learn how to make them in my own... Maybe it could be one of my new year resolutions!
I illustrated this recipe for a talented cook who wanted a Mother's Day gift for her mom who taught her to cook. She found this delicious and quirkily worded old family recipe in her mom's recipe box. I used a pointed calligraphy pen dipped in ink for the lettering, and watercolor for the illustrations (and for the red in "Pizza dough").
A tasty French treat eaten in January to celebrate Epiphany. You hide a small ceramic figure called a feve in the dough (a dried bean will do). Whoever gets the feve gets a paper crown and becomes kind or queen for the day and is guaranteed luck for the year!
