Best Indian cookbook in the world

Best Indian cookbook in the world

It has taken 20 years of research by author and culinary academic Pushpesh Pant to collect all the over 1000 recipes that make the massive cookbook with the simple name, India Cookbook. India is a huge country with a rich culinary tradition so I can that it takes time to gather all the recipes but 20 years is impressive. And Pushpesh Pant quest hasn’t gone by unnoticed, his cookbook was recently named the best Indian cookbook in the world at the prestigious Gourmand Cookbook Awards in Paris. The cookbook was designed by Frost Design and it comes nicely packaged in a canvas bag that reminds of a sack of rice. Photos from and of the book can be found after the jump.

La Puglia in un piatto

La Puglia in un piatto

If you ask “if you can only eat food from one country, what country would that be?” I think many of us would say Italy. The italian cuisine is versatile and it differs from the region to region. The design agency Usopposto have designed La Puglia in un piatto (Apulia on a plate) a cookbook that celebrates the food from one of those regions, Apulia. The cookbook containing 60 recipes that are accompanied by a series of graphic interpretations graphics applied to ceramic plates. They’ve also made a bespoke graphical font for the book that you can download from here. And you’ll find a bunch of photos of the book after the jump.

Gille Bites

Gille Bites

Swedish Gille is releasing Bites, a new series of mini treats. First out is their new dammsugare with mint and dark chocolate. The sweet, sweet treats have nicely been packaged by Malmö based Guts & Glory. I especially like the packings retro style and the nice font (which looks very much like the font that Guts & Glory uses in their own logo).

Still Liquor

Still Liquor

In the 1920s during the prohibition the likes of Al Capone made themselves rich (and feared) by running alcohol. Not that Seattle based Still Liquor is doing anything shady or that you should fear them but I get that 1920s feel from their identity (it’s the car that does it). Anyhow, it was designed by Javas Lehn and it sure looks good.

Desserts from Freia

Desserts from Freia

Tangram Design have designed some nice packaging for Freia’s new line of ready to eat desserts. Freia’s products taste homemade and that was something they wanted the product design to reflect. I think Tangram Design got it right with their retro design.

Tygverket

Tygverket

Tygverket is located at St. Paulsgatan where they’ve been for last 16 years. Over the years Tygverket has grown to become one of Stockholm’s largest and most well stocked fabric and sewing accessory shops but they’ve never had a uniform identity. Until now that is. №10 have designed a colorful and suiting identity based on the classic tape measure that you’ll find in any tailor or fabric shop. A simple idea, well executed!

Momenti Unici

Momenti Unici

German design studio YLF.Design have with a solid understand of typography and with just white and a nuance of blue created a well thought-out identity for the italian restaurant Momenti Unici in the city of Wiesbaden. The logo itself isn’t that special but when it’s put to use with the rest of the identity it just works and creates a great visual totality.

Bumpy Road by Simogo

Bumpy Road by Simogo

Just a few months after their first release, Malmö based Simogo is at it again. This time they’ve developed a car based platform game called Bumby Road. They game has the same cute and quirky style that I liked from the studios first game Kosmo Spin and I bet it’s just as fun to play (Bumby Road game is due later this spring). Besides being released for the different iOS platforms Bumby Road will also be released as classic desktop game for your Mac. More pictures and a video of the game can be found after the jump.

Lures by Eric Erickson

Lures by Eric Erickson

I never really considered fishing lures as “designed” or especially attractive before I saw Eric Erickson study of lures. According to Eric Erickson the lures are modern Trojan horses made to entice and captivate its observer (aka the fish). Not sure if they’ll lure the fish to bite, but to me, a human, they sure do look cool!
