Little Brunch Book

  • As a Mexican, I'm really proud of my country and my culture, I'm specifically proud of the food. Living in Chicago one would think a Mexican wouldn't miss the food, but I do, I miss a typical homemade meal. I wanted to share this feeling with other people and knowing a lot of international students, I knew I wasn't the only one. So I decided to create this little book. 

    Little Brunch Book is meant to be a publication that you can subscribe to every month and receive in the mail. The book is a brunch or breakfast cookbook that contains three different recipes, their history and an interview from the owner of the recipe. Each issue is supposed to be of a different country. With Mexico as the first country for the first issue, the book contains enchiladas, flan and horchata recipes as well as a design that resembles Mexican tableware. With three sections, including: the history of each recipe, the recipe and interviews of the people who shared the recipes with me, this book is bound as an accordion book. It's can be easily spread out to read the recipes and see the different sections of the book without going back and forth. It's small size serves as an easy way to store around the kitchen.
