Summary: This is the story of the birth of a cookbook. There are 14 images, showing you the process of the creation of this cookbook. It includes the forming of the idea, the meal preparation, the photo session, the photoshop process, the sample images, and the end product.

October 2006. My friend DJ was looking for someone to take photos for his cookbook "Recipes from 21 Union Cafe -- Minnesotan Cuisine & Beyond." When he came to my photo gallery show, he got inspired by my macro shots featuring ninjas. He actually purchased the photo that inspired him.

November 2006, he contacted me, and said he would like me to help create the cookbook featuring toy figurines along with the foods, giving the book the 'hook' he was looking for.

I used Microsoft Word to create the cookbook and inserted family pictures that I either scanned or were submitted. I found that a black and white photocopy of a picture turned out pretty awful so I bought a HP color laser printer and printed out all of the cookbooks myself. Then I had them cut and spiral bound to 8.5" x 5.5" books. If I had it to do all over again I would have made them 8.5x11 to make pagination easier.
