Exploring Asian Cuisine: A Cookbook for Beginners is a collection of four Asian recipes from Japan, China, and the Philippines. The main goal of this project is to help teach and demystify Asian food with recipes that are accessible and approachable without sacrificing authenticity and flavor. Each recipe has been carefully chosen to represent the unique flavors and ingredients of different Asian regions. From the bold flavors of Filipino Chicken Adobo to the delicate balance of flavors of Japanese curry, each recipe offers a glimpse into the rich culinary traditions of Asian cuisine. As a graphic designer, I am influenced by the Bauhaus movement and design philosophy of “form follows function.” Bauhaus design is often characterized as abstract, geometric, having shapes with little to no decoration, the use of primary colors, and bold typography. With my goal of sharing my favorite Asian recipes and showcasing my ability as a graphic designer to create visually compelling designs that are both functional and aesthetically pleasing, I hope that this cookbook will inspire others to explore the delicious and diverse world of Asian cuisine.

Biographical Information about Author(s)

I am a Digital Media Arts major with a Computer Science minor. I have always been interested in cooking and art and I decided to mix both of my passions into one art project which resulted in a cookbook. By making this cookbook, I am able to show my graphic design and photography skills and it is also a great addition to my portfolio. After college, I hope to find a graphic design job somewhere in Chicago.
