Prime, A Cookbook

Growing up with your dad as a chef makes it hard not to be a food snob, especially when a love of food runs in your family. My great-grandparents used to own a bakery in Philadelphia and the recipes are not in my possession. I couldn’t let this happen to the food I grew up eating that feels like home to me. Prime, A Cookbook is a collection of my dad’s recipes, from his restaurant specials to my family’s staple meals and desserts. Each recipe has a memory attached to it in the form of a handwritten note. Food is family and a vessel for love.

The front and back cover of a cookbook are placed on a pale yellow background. The front cover is a picture of a silver chef’s knife covered in rainbow gummy bears, with a pastel rainbow gradient behind it. In the top right corner of the cover, there are handwritten pink graffiti letters that read “PRIME” The image has glowing purple edges. The back cover is a rainbow pastel gradient with a large white oval taken out of it. In the center of the oval there is a rainbow picture of my dog, Russel. He is holding a giant pancake in his mouth and the text under the image reads “Russel, the floor cleaner”
