In my latest article for Random House’s TasteBook I share recipes for my favorite Mexican street snacks, including TostiNachos and these Walking Tacos made with Tapatio Doritos. They’re perfect for the Super Bowl, a day when it is perfectly acceptable to eat all of the junk food you’ve been attempting to avoid the rest of the year.
I am excited beyond belief! The cookbook app that I photographed has been released today!
About a year ago, Rovio Entertainment, inventors of the game Angry Birds, asked me to document the food culture of their famously egg hungry pigs. Their talented developers gathered over 200 of my resulting photographs in a fun and useful interactive cookbook app., which contains the pig’s egg recipes, and animated illustrations of the them in their native environment. It was a great honor to be able to spend so much time with the pigs to create the Bad Piggies Best Egg Recipes.
The pigs are fantastic cooks who love good food. They are also kind of messy and their life is in a constant state of flux and chaos. “What makes this cookbook special is that the photographs of the app are taken by the pigs, which means that your own dish always looks better than the ones in the book,” said Sanna Lukander, VP of Books. “Quite a change from the average cookbooks on the market!”
