Devouring Books


“As cooks, we must first taste a dish in our imaginations, see it on the table, share it with guests – sometimes more fanciful than real – and then actually reproduce it from a text.  

A longing for the pleasures of the table reflects a concern for balance and harmony and an integration of the physical and spiritual nature of our existence.  

In this way, cookbooks are a meditation.  Preparing a dish or a meal is not merely an effort to satisfy physical hunger but often a quest for the good life.”

The design and innovations agency, Korefe, created this edible cookbook for a publishing house.  

It consists of layered sheets of pasta so the “pages” can be used as layers for lasagna.
