Each section in the book follows a similar design: a snippet of text, a simple sketch of the chef/cook/restaurateur/farmer, several pictures and a hand written Q&A ripped from a sketch book. I thought it would be fun to use this same format for some sketchbook pages about me, my kitchen and the spices found there.
I decided to make my husband's favorite cookies for the photo shoot since they contain lots of spices. I asked my daughter to look over the Q&A pages in the book and write me some questions in the same style. She did a great job.
Here is my four-page imitation "Edible Selby" feature. It required a number of steps... take lots of pictures, format the pictures along with a text box, scan the handwritten Q&A, print out the pages, add hand written notes and sketches, re-scan the whole thing and upload. It was a really fun project. I'm actually going to stick these pages in the back of my Edible Selby book -- an addendum! I encourage you to document your own kitchen -- and spices -- in this format. Upload them to our flickr group. I can't wait to see them.
