Illustrated recipes
July 1, 2011 8:17 AM   Subscribe

Do you find yourself envious of the perfectly staged photos accompanying recipes? Are your drawing skills better than your culinary skills? Recipe Look is a collection of user-submitted illustrated recipes, some with pictures fit for a magazine, others a bit more casual. See also: Drawn Butter, an illustrated recipe blog (via Johnny Wander's Ecto-Cooler Smoothie); Pictoral Recipes from Oregon State University (in English and Spanish); and two recipes from comic artist Lucy Knisley (via; Knisley prev, prev).

i've seen drawn recipes before - but super kitsch and in 70s kitchens. what are those called? like big drawings, 4 or 5 item simple recipes, like guacamole, very little words...

this is a great post. i plan to decorate my kitchen in drawn recipes.

I know! I couldn't figure out any Google-able ways to describe those.

Also: They Draw and Cook

They hooked up with the Food Channel somehow, and then moved from one or two recipes per post (often with very amateurish yet charming stuff) to much slicker content and every post being a "collection," and I found it all a bit much to follow as an RSS feed.

But it remains very cute, quite international, and often inspiring. And they have a very functional search feature.

Love the oyster sushi. "You get yourself an oyster, put it on some nori, roll that shit up, sprinkle vinegar on it, and it's delicious."
