A Cooking Journey
A little funding, a pinch of dreams, a spoon of imagination, this is the recipe for a book made with the heart.
A Cooking Journey
A Cooking Journey is :
A cookbook from 12 countries
the story of 2 French children and their friends
Tao and Capucine are brother and sister. They are French and have lived in Shanghai, China, for 3 years. The opportunity to make a whole bunch of friends from all over the world!
Today, their mom needs their help to organize the UN Day. - “Kids! I need you! We have to find an idea to celebrate the feast of the world's children at school ... "
As their mom explains what they can do, Tao, with a big smile, walks up to his sister:
- "Follow me, I have an idea" ...
Go on an adventure with our two heroes and learn how to make their friends' recipes!
Who is behind this project?
Camille, their pastry mom, Amoureuse d'une Tarte Au Citron and full-time reader of stories.
It's been a while since I wanted to write a baking book for children.
And this year, I embarked on this crazy gourmet project.
It was my two children, Capucine and Tao, who were my inspiration. The moments of accomplices in the kitchen, their desire to learn to bake and this magnificent passion for books, tales and stories.
I said to myself "Why not? "
Why not combine their story, their adventure with their friends from all over the world and my world of pastry? The project was there.
It was now necessary to find ideas to tell their trip and find the best illustrator to bring their adventure to life!
Today the story is written, as well as the briefing for the illustrations.
Now it's time for translation. And yes, the book will be in French, English and Chinese!
This book is above all a souvenir book which traces the encounters of our two adventurers during their first 3 years in Shanghai.
In this book, everything is true. Camille, Emilie, Gloria, Julia, Vera, Emiliano, Martina, Pedro, Idris, Nico, Vega, Noé, Ellie, Imane, Lina, Ethan, Clara, Mikko, Ari, Mia are the friends of Tao and Capucine.
Meeting places are the places where their families love to meet.
The recipes in the book are the recipes that friends make with their parents.
I just imagined the plot and their means of transport to travel around the world ... But, that, I do not reveal it to you right away :)
For this project, I had the chance to work alongside a talented illustrator and a graphic designer with fairy fingers.
