This is one of my favourite books that I designed and illustrated. The author, Svitlana Yakovenko, spent 3 years researching old recipes from rural Ukraine. She had tested all of them and corrected the proportions to achieve the best result with Australian ingredients. Then she cooked all of them and made photos herself. And then … I was coming to design the book and eat almost all of 350 dishes. Yes, we had to go on diet afterwards.
