A Cook’s Story
After longstanding collaboration with chef Scott Pickett, we were delighted to be part of the intimate team producing his debut book, A Cook’s Story. Part narrative and part cookbook, the stories and recipes span Scott’s culinary life from childhood to the opening of his second restaurant.
For the chapter heads, we sat Scott down and asked him to hand draw the trajectory of the time in his life each chapter described. The result was a line that is carried through the entire book – sometimes wavy, sometimes jagged but generally travelling upwards. We employed classic typefaces based on French lettering as a nod to Scott’s heavyweight training within the likes of Bocuse d’Or. The cover simply features Scott’s monogram embossed on beautiful matte paperstock.
A Cook’s Story was written with Rita Elrich.
