Creatives thrive on inspiration, the five senses, useful tools and ways to express their vision.
Talk about eye candy. Go go crazy over at theydrawandcook.com, where you can find loads of illustrated recipes, submit a recipe, dial a meal randomizer, a clickable world map of recipes, and follow their blog of visual dishes from all over the world. It's sort of a Moosewood Recipe for present day cooks.
These are full color beauties that can do double duty as a preparation guide and something lovely to look at over your daily meals in the kitchen or dining room. The folks running this site even set up an agreement with GreatBigCanvas.com so you can order one of their initial collections of over 300 recipes.
They've even turned their site into a book you can pre-order on Amazon.
Food for the soul.
Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
