Alumna's Book Reviewed in Food and Culture Publication

Cover of the illustrated cookbook "They Draw & Cook," co-created by alumna Salli Swindell

The illustrated cookbook They Draw & Cook, co-created by Fashion Design alumna Salli Swindell (CCAD 1981) and her brother Nate Padavick, was reviewed in Gastronomic, a magazine that discusses food and culture.

The idea for They Draw & Cook originated from Swindell and Padavick’s website, which is a platform for artists to submit their illustrated recipes ranging from simple family traditions to more complex and elaborate dishes. They then decided to publish a cookbook featuring 107 of the website’s illustrated recipes.

The review of the cookbook appeared in the fall 2012 issue of Gastronomic.

"Here is a cookbook that Andy Warhol would have enjoyed," the reviewer Stefanie S. Jandl said. "The presentation of the recipes is as diverse as the dishes; they are witty and whimsical, serious and sophisticated, and sometimes deeply personal."

The cookbook is available through retailers such as amazon and Barnes & Noble for purchase.
