Drawing out Deliciousness @ Food & Wine Classic in Aspen
July 13, 2011
It has a been a few weeks but after longingly walking by the Celebrate Flatiron Chefs event in in Madison Square Park yesterday, I was inspired to post about the fantastic experience of graphic recording at this year’s Food & Wine Classic in Aspen, Co (Thank you to our friends at All-Clad!) In case you are not familiar with the FOOD & WINE Classic in Aspen, Co, it is has been the premier culinary and wine event of its kind for the past 28 years. Each June up to 5,000 consumers, restaurant industry folks and PR folks head to Aspen for 3 days of wine tasting and food demonstrations. While I was there I was fortunate enough to graphic record at seminars headed by Mario Batali, José Andrés, and Ming Tsai (to name a few!) I even did a large scale illustrated recipe for Marc Murphy. Check it out HERE. One of the great benefits of being a graphic recorder is learning about diverse concepts and ideas across vast industries. I have to admit, when I started my career as a graphic recorder, I NEVER thought I would learn to cook! I was incredibly inspired by Tim Love‘s grilling techniques and the simplicity of Michael Symon‘s family style Greek cooking. I started to think that even I, a girl who can’t even hard-boil an egg, could cook for a summer time dinner party! All I needed was to see the recipe presented in a visual style. Here are the results of my sketching on the plane ride home back to New York City. Try making the recipe and let us know how it tastes! (Or better yet, send us some! YUM!)
