Visualized Recipes

Several years ago, I came across the work of a photographer in Finland named Marina Ekroos, who takes photos of recipes in each stage, in the same shot.

I’m obsessed with her creative visualization of recipes and also think it’s cool how the steps are very neatly portrayed, so it’s pretty clear how one would follow the recipe. After finding her stuff, I also have found a couple other cool visualizations of recipes. The first is from an Etsy shop called Lucile’s Kitchen:

And the other is from Ikea’s cookbook:

I love the differing levels of order, disorder, and abstraction in these and also because of the sign project have been thinking about how some of them communicate an entire recipe/set of steps with only images.
