Vanessa designed a cookbook with the intent of showing readers that anyone can cook, no matter age or skill level. She used 12 recipes from her cooking class from her home school. Her classmates tried 8 out the 12 dishes, and applied the feedback she received after building comment cards specific to each creation. After her class tried 8, she decided to add 12 more from her family and friends. Vanessa has added tips and the possibility for variations. She asked Paige (a graphic designer attending Propel) to draw illustrations to include an artistic touch.
It didn’t take long for Vanessa to realize the theme of her recipes: “Anyone Can Cook”.Vanessa has always loved to cook and share her skills and knowledge with her friends and family. This project was another opportunity for her to do just that.
