Kelsea has designed a cookbook that features recipes which have been passed down through her family. The book includes four generations of recipes from both sides of her family tree. With each recipe she tested, Kelsea sourced the stories behind these recipes, and recalled the times her family enjoyed them together. Kelsea crafted these stories to place in the book as a complement to each recipe.
After finding a theme for her book - “Recipes Through the Generations” - she designed the cover and formatted the pages to have a modern twist on an old style. She then collaborated with classmate Kaylen to document the creative process and include pictures to complement each recipe and story. The final product is Kelsea's original cookbook "Sweet Retreats: Family Recipes."
