Foodie Illustrations Make Drool-Worthy Books

Food Network Blog Praises Student's Illustration

Posted 12.31.10 by MICA Communications

Kathleen Marcotte's Spiced Holiday Pecans illustrated recipe

Rebecca Bradley's Illustrating the Edible class this fall created intricate and beautiful designs to showcase some of their favorite recipes, and they were featured on the cult foodie blog, TheyDrawAndCook.com. These and other illustrations on the blog were noticed by Weldon Owen Publishing and are being turned into a cookbook, They Draw & Cook, Volume 1, due out in early fall 2011 with 108 full-color recipes. Students Kathleen Marcotte, Sarah Straub, Kristin Nohe, Julianna Brion and Kevin Valente, as well as Bradley, will have their work featured (with royalties coming in) in what Publisher's Weekly has called one of the 10 most-anticipated cookbooks for 2011.

This drew the attention of Food Network's blog, The FN Dish, which featured the work of Marcotte, calling her a "very talented young illustrator." The article also praised her ability to draw always-difficult nuts, especially pecans, and said her dish, Spiced Holiday Pecans, was a "surefire crowd pleaser." Click here to read the post.
