Cordula Alessandri

The Taste of Home book was inspired by an appeal issued by Austria’s culinary heritage association for readers of the Kronen Zeitung to send in their old family recipes. Austria’s largest daily newspaper collected hundreds of recipes that are guarded like family secrets. Thomas Gabriel got to work preparing our culinary childhood memories according to the style of era of each recipe using the right typography and an original illustration style to whet readers’ appetites.
