If Dish taught us one thing it’s that little ideas can snowball!

Dish was born out of a passion for great hospitality, on-point design & a small spark of an idea to create a little collection of recipes to donate to the Starlight Foundation Charity. The result was a stunning cookbook & showcase selection of 44 of Australia’s most renowned culinary institutions & cafes. From recipes to paper, printing to individual & companies’ time, everything that went into Dish was donated.

Dish’s typography it pretty neat, we’ve gone for a custom “flexi grid” recipe book layout & added “handwritten” notes & stories from the contributors. Personal tales from their childhood or relating to the recipes they have lovingly given to this great cause.

Dish was a passion project of mine & now it’s a reality, the best thing is knowing that we did our bit to help the kids of the Starlight Foundation.
