Episode 34 l A Look Back at Illustrated Cookbooks

Welcome back to another episode of the Cookbook Love Podcast. Today’s topic is an offshoot of my episode last week with Literary Agent Maria Ribas. We talked about upcoming trends in cookbooks, and Maria mentioned illustrations. It’s hard to imagine that illustrations will replace photography, but in this episode, I take a look back to illustrated and hand-lettered cookbooks in my collection. My review of these books led me to the discovery that illustrations serve many purposes in cookbooks:  design, instruction of step-by-step processes, identification if ingredients or equipment, or in the case of To The Kings Taste, illustrations that displayed elaborate scenes of medieval dinners and kitchen tasks (such as stomping grapes, or churning butter) created from woodcuts.
