- Helps you with everyday kitchen trivia like cups to grams and Celsius to Fahrenheit conversions, bakers percentage, meat doneness, healthy substitutes and appropriate wine pairings.
What others have to say?
The booklet is fully customizable and lets you design its final outlook; whether its cut-outs, photos, illustrations, stickers or just text, Cookbook won't have any complaints.
Created with minimalism and homeliness in mind, Cookbook collects memories on both inside and outside, while it hopes to become your trusted cooking companion. It holds place for twelve recipes, each allowing six tries. After 72 days of thoughtful and devoted cooking, the journal becomes your personal cookbook, holding twelve signature recipes you will always be proud of.
Cookbook was thrilled to hear that two young artists from our hometown Ljubljana (Slovenia) were willing to collaborate with an exclusive illustration / design which adorns the interior of the Cookbook's cover. We are sure you'll be blown away by the works of Urška Hvalica and Matija Medved, who we are collaborating with for our first Artist series.
The idea for Cookbook has long been sparking up in my head. It has evolved from my personal need as it is something I've always wanted to have in my kitchen instead of numerous post-it notes, lost paper sheets and cut-out recipes that never seemed to work. I believed my cooking process can be both creative and organised at the same time. The booklet slowly started to come to life while i was working as an Associate in a corporate Law firm in my hometown Ljubljana, Slovenia. Developing the idea acted as a stress reliever and a much-needed creative output after long office hours. It helped me balance the abstract world of rules and numbers with my passions: cooking, inventing and design. After my Christmas vacation, I decided to quit my job and fully focus on bringing Cookbook to reality. Hopefully it will spark numerous cooking ideas and make your cooking fun, organised and even more creative.
Why we need your help
After designing and prototyping the book, we soon realised the production costs of a larger pressing, which would make the production viable, are too much for us to afford on our own. By reaching the campaign goal we will be able to cover the initial costs of the covers, paper, prints and bookbinding as well as shipping. Hopefully we'll then be able to continue producing the Cookbook and inspire many amazing recipes to be developed around the globe.

Risks and challenges
As the design process is pretty much finished and our print house as well as our bookbinder are within a 30-min radius from our home, we are luckily in a pretty safe position from a production perspective. The shipping is also planned out, and with so many friends ready to help, we are sure one of the Cookbooks will soon be an integral part of your kitchen shelf.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
