Chiara di Francia is an Italian illustrator whose 5-year-old cousin requested that she drew a recipe for her, so she could learn to cook her favorite pastry. After finishing her drawing, she realized that it could be turned into a project!

So she began her collection of illustrations showing how to make some recipes step by step, which she has now edited into a book. Her drawings are simple yet accurate, and are really helpful if you intend to follow the instructions and actually cook something.

Among her recipes she includes desserts, salads, pasta and even breakfast options. Make sure that you check her book out: you can just admire how well made the recipe illustrations are, or maybe actually try cooking one of them!
