Book Cover: The Family Meal


Clean.  With relatable visual metaphor.

The Family Meal by Ferran Adria


This book caught my attention from the bookstore window.  I love the cover design – it’s smart.

Evocative and simple.  Smart smart.

And, now that I googled it.  It’s amazing-ness meter rating has reached greater heights.

The Family Meal is published by Phaidon, and was written by Ferran Adria (the molecular gastronomy vanguard of much-acclaimed El Bulli).  The book showcases the meals of El Bulli staff, adapted for home cooking.  All beautifully photographed. Or, at least, beautiful, for me since I love gritty, close-up shots of cooking procedures.
