There’s more to being a chef than just searing or frying stuff up. A large part of the entire process is the preparation, and if you mess that part up, then you’ve effectively messed up the entire dish.
Columbia-based culinary school Escuela de Cocina Carull is well aware of that fact, which is why they came up with a truly unique and novel introductory cookbook that will test – and in the process, teach – students how to slice, so that they’ll hopefully make the cut.
Students will have to carefully slice through the workbook pages by following the perforated guides and precise lines on the cookbook in order to access the recipes within. When they get the cut right, the recipe is their reward. If they get it wrong, they probably won’t have any dish to work on… because the recipe will be sliced to pieces.
It might be hard to imagine how the cookbook works based on just reading about it, so check out the clip below to see for yourself:
Now that’s what I call hands-on education.
This innovative cookbook was designed by Juan Jose Posada for Ogilvy & Mather Bogota.
