Assignment: Design and typeset 7 recipes and a glossary, each recipe with a headnote and tip. 
My sister is a chef and my mother always asks for her recipes whenever she cooks for us. I took this assignment as an opportunity to put together customized recipes for my mother's Christmas gift. My sister helped provide the recipes with a personal headnote and tip for each. The glossary is compiled with definitions from the Food Lover's Companion, a culinary encyclopedia.
I created a box set of large cards instead of a book for convenience when cooking, inspired by traditional recipe cards. Each recipe has a photo I took of the dish on the backside.
