The New York Times'
food section, Dining & Wine
, has put together a D.I.Y. cookbook of small kitchen projects for cooks of all calibers. Andrew Rae created the illustrations. Each project is simple and requires no special equipment or more room than most New York City apartment kitchens have. Projects include how to make cultured butter, kimchi, fresh cheese, and chocolate-hazelnut paste.
Rae based his illustrations off an old instructional D.I.Y. manual. Instead of overly complicated drawings, Rae created pieces that reflected the simplicity of the projects. He used a simple hand-drawn technique and color scheme. Dining & Wine editor Pete Wells says of the project, "This is among the best things Dining has ever produced and by far the most attractive of all."
The full D.I.Y. Cookbook is available on The New York Times site
