LA-based artist Stacy Michelson decided a few years ago to illustrate every episode of Good Food for an entire year. Her food drawings are bright, colorful, and a lot of fun. Imagine an avocado that looks like it just came from a workout, or a champagne flute with cool sunglasses.
Now Michelson has a book full of her food illustrations. It’s called “Eat This Book: Knowledge to Feed Your Appetite and Inspire Your Next Meal.”
It includes tips and fun facts about some of the world’s favorite — and sometimes misunderstood — foods. For example: The ancient Egyptians created marshmallows. Pizza Hut was the biggest buyer of kale until the last decade. Mochi ice cream was created in LA. More than 11 billion avocados are consumed each year around the globe, and Americans eat them most on Super Bowl Sunday than any other day.
