Cooking It Up in Cleveland


This unique book contains dozens of colorfully cooked-up recipes from members of the Northern Ohio Illustrators Society. All of the desserts, side dishes and entrees depicted prove the illustrators are wildly creative cooks – as well as successful, professional artists.

The NOIS recipe book contains 38 recipes accompanied by original illustrations, artist bios and a directory of some of the finest illustrators in northeast Ohio. The full color book, ring-bound for easy use when cooking, sells for $10 and is currently available at the locations below, with more being added all the time.
