Food is an art, right?
Well then, how perfect to turn the instructions
to prepare food also into art?
My mom and I have been toying with a recipe book idea for years.
We want to make something that people will cherish and use,
something instructive but fun and colorful, and full of anecdotes.
So I decided to take the plunge and just start
playing around with it, at least.
And voila, my first illustrated recipe :)
I chose preserved lemons, because
A. I love them :)
B. It's a simple recipe.
C. They're special because my mom makes them for me.
Hope you like the recipe enough to try it.
Don't forget to rinse the lemons out before using -
they will be VERY salty.
There is a whole website devoted to illustrated recipes
- can you believe it?
So do hop over and check out some amazing kitchen art here.
You might even see mine there, if they accept it!
Have fun while you cook - it's therapeutic!
