Food and Art…what could be better than that?

Two things I equally love in this world are illustration and cooking. They Draw & Cook combines both of those loves by sharing illustrated recipes from artists from around the world. Sounds awesome, right?

Nate Padavick and Salli Swindell are the brother and sister design and illustration team who created this concept. The pair came up with the idea on a family vacation. While Nate was busy making dinner—fettuccine with figs in a balsamic butter sauce—Salli  was playing around with her watercolors and  painting the crate of figs.  They toyed around with some other ideas, but finally hit upon the idea to start a blog and invite artists to submit their illustrated recipes. Visitors can browse the recipes and now can even buy some of the recipe illustrations….plus, there’s a book!

Here’s some of my favorite recipes….and illustrations as well.
