Making cookies around the holidays is a tradition in my family. The variety of colors, shapes and textures makes cookies the perfect subject for an illustration. I have tried a few of the recipes below but would like to try more in the future!
This is an ode to Norwegian Sommerboller—a cardamom infused sweet bun with a vanilla custard center—probably the dreamiest thing I have ever eaten! Also a little nod here to the traditional Norwegian decorative painting called rosemaling.
Although I'm not Italian, I love everything that goes into the Feast of the 7 Fishes! It's an Italian-American celebration of Christmas Eve with dishes of fish and other seafood. I love seafood! I love pasta! For the past 3 Christmases my boyfriend and I have gotten conveyor belt sushi, so that's as close as I've gotten to eating fish on Christmas! Cheers everyone!
I was lucky enough to grow up with a family cottage by a lake. And equally as lucky, about 20 minutes north of our cottage there’s a small town called Gimli, Manitoba. And this little lakeside town has an incredible history as an Icelandic settlement....the culture still thrives there today. It was here that I tried my first piece of Vinaterta: a delicately layered Icelandic celebration cake (hey, holidays!). It is a striking confection with its multiple light on dark lines of alternating almond or cardamom cookies stuckfast on deep, rich plum preserves (or jammy prunes if you’re feeling adventurous!). Whatever fruit you choose, this layer is typically flavoured with warm notes of vanilla, cardamom and cinnamon. Give me a slice of Vinaterta with a strong cup of coffee on a cool summer morning or a festive winter night and I’ll give you a big ol’ hug - and maybe invite you out to the lake!
Over the past several years Avocado Toast is has become extremely popular, especially in California. It's fast, easy and anything goes, which means people are very creative using their favorite toppings.
Personally, I prefer mine without the toast but still get creative and enjoy trying different herbs and vegetables to compliment the avocado's mild taste.
I immediately fell in love with ceviche when I traveled to Peru. Upon arriving back home, even I made the dish for my friends! They were skeptical when I served them raw fish in a bowl and they asked, "So... now we cook it?".
For this illustration, I combined a recipe illustration showcasing the freshness of the food, with a map of my journey from my sketchbook.
This easy to make hummus recipe is a tasty addition to any meal or snack. Hummus originated in the Middle East, and has been a favorite in my family for years. That's why I selected this recipe for the Global Cuisine Design Challenge.
