They Draw & Cook

When: Tue., Feb. 16 2016

Cleveland’s food scene and art community seem to be growing in unprecedented ways. Fans of art and food are sure to enjoy the Northern Ohio Illustrator Society’s They Draw & Cook: A Creative Playground with Salli S. Swindell. Swindell, who lives in Hudson, co-founded They Draw & Cook, an online illustrated cookbook featuring an archive of more than 5,500 illustrated recipes from around the world, and boasts a Facebook following of more than a quarter-million people. Swindell will discuss the project at the Cleveland Institute of Art tonight at 7. They Draw & Cook has inspired a Food Network sponsored recipe contest and publisher Weldon Owen printed a collection of They Draw & Cook illustrated recipes. Additionally Swindell and her brother and co-founder Nate Padavick have published smaller books by individual artists, who earn 50 percent of sales.
