Marcella Kriebel: Mi Comida Latina

An Illustrated Cookbook: A Journey From Creation to Publication

Website: Marcella Kreibel

Marcella will share the story of how her cookbook, Mi Comida Latina came to be. From learning recipes as she traveled, to designing page layout on a light table, Marcella's book began as a project intended for family and friends.  She will discuss her art practice, her interest in illustrating recipes and her experience producing a hardback book in the USA thanks to a successful Kickstarter campaign. Her book is now available nationwide through Burgess Lea Press.
