Recipes for Food is a cookbook website with designer recipes, edited and designed by Nazli Ercan and Eric Li. The site was developed as a response to the lack of an exploration of the relationship between food and design.
A recipe is generally comprised of a series of components (content) that must be combined in a series of steps in order to produce a resulting dish. This is similar to giving form to content through a series of steps—a gestalt of sorts. Li and Ercan chose to ask individuals whose practice they believe borders on the edge of design and art due to the conceptual voice that these practitioners often bring to their work. This way of thinking differently about design, art, and production yields interesting takes on recipes for food that are somehow specific to the individual. All of these recipes can be seen on recipesforfood.net.
