This assignment was to design a book based on a theme and it can be interpreted in any way. I decided to do spice because cooking is my hobby. There is a saying that ‘a recipe has no soul, you as a cook must bring soul to it’. Cooking is like art; I use spice to make it colorful. After the theme had been decided, I shopped around for different kinds of spice. From Mexican to Indian, from sweet to extremely spicy, I started to explore the world of spice.
The first chapter of the book took people on a journey of meals around the world. Every meal used different kinds of spices.
I enjoyed the process of taking photos of food in an organized way in order to make them feel appetizing. For the cover image
I played with spice and typography and made it interesting and flavorful. The second chapter is about spices that I’ve found. Each of them has their own name and some are very unique. By introducing the benefits of spices for health, I want readers to know that spices not only excite our taste buds but are composed of an impressive list of ingredient that are essential for our wellness.
