Just stumbled on the web site, Theydrawandcook.com – fun! For all of you who like having pictures of your dishes or simply learn by seeing with the right brain, this site’s for you. My graphic illustration buddies will love it, too, as will type fiends – there’s some wild typefaces going down in many of them.

Recipes are submitted from artists around the world, shared for free here. The styles are unique – from stick-figure funny to gorgeous works of art that happen to teach you how to cook something. If you’re handy with a brush, pen or the computer, and cook, submit your own.

The plus – get recipes from around the world you may not have considered otherwise. These illustrated recipes are simple enough to appear (usually) in one panel – no heavy lifting. Call up a metric conversion chart for measurements, and start cooking.

For fig enthusiasts: You could win $2000 in their Year of the Fig recipe contest – enter by March 21 on their site.
