They Draw and Cook

I love the way, in the last post that art was incorporated into an audio interview. It brought to mind a website I recently came across called "They Draw and Cook".

Nate Padavick and Salli Swindell are a brother and sister design and illustration team who came up with this unique idea of combining art and cooking. Read more about them here.

The site is well set up. One of the first things you notice is that you can submit a recipe and that one artist will be chosen every month and awarded $100. You can browse through recipes by title, artist's name, location or ingredients or you can click on the world map and find recipes from all over the world. Such fun!

The recipes are so creative. Here are a few, but go and browse for yourself!

I find myself looking for the most colourful recipes! It's slightly addictive!
