I am working on a series that will feature recipes using fresh spring ingredients (in the same style as shown above). I'm partnering with this artist:
Since I know 99% of you love to eat, I'd be interested in any feedback around the most appealing/approachable ingredients or dishes, what you love to eat/make during this time of year, etc. Or, if you've seen any great recipes lately. I need to tweak anything existing but that is easy to do. I would like each design to have a strong color palette, so recipes that predominately feature one ingredient or several ingredients of the same color (i.e. greens or berries) would be especially great.
I won't be focusing on any protein unless it's a complimentary ingredient, FYI.
