Eloise decided she wanted to author a second recipe book. This book was to be about seafood.


Having worked together on her previous book the real food for kids cookbook last year, this was a pretty easy project. We had already figured out our workflow and the way that we liked to work together.

We used beautifully textured matte art paper for the pages. It was a softcover book but the cover was textured in the whole book had a beautiful wraparound photograph that Ellio had taken from the tessellated pavement's in Tasmania.
