Finally, I have my own copy of The Green Whisk!
March 8th the ladies of The Green Whisk (de Groene Garde), THE book about sustainable cooking, organized a launch party, along with Keff & Dessing Publishing and publisher Prometheus at the fancy diner Hannekes Boom in Amsterdam.
I must say that my name so far has not been connected with such beautiful printing. Everything comes together so nicely… No wonder that the book has become a huge success almost immediately!
Unfortunately for English good-food-lovers, for now, it is only available in Dutch.
What is it about?
Honest food: we all want it, but how do you do that? The Green Whisk shows you the way in the country-of-good-food.
A 240-page hardcover cookbook including:
+ Background stories about sustainability;
+ Interviews with pioneers in honest cooking;
+ Practical tips for buying, preparing and storing of seasonal and regional food, organic food and fair trade products;
+ And, last but not least: 100 seasonal recipes
Watch a short movie about the content and the presentation of the book at the end of this post.
First…. my illustrations!
I love the quality of the paper…
I think I have never had my illustrations published in such quality before!
Had the most amazing time tonight, drawing live at one of my favourite places in Utrecht: Hooi, the cutest “notting-hill-like” lunchroom. So much fun! The evening was filled with tasty finger bites, poetic music and a beautiful story by Bordenvol. I made postcards of people’s favorite drink or food, giving it a quirky twist:
Do you see my dreaming series in the background?
They will remain in the lunchroom for a mini-exhibition!
Please excuse me for the poor quality of the images. Forgot my camera, so had to make pictures with my crappy phone camera… (and of course forgot to photograph three quarters of the drawings because the rush I was in).
