12 Plates

12 Plates is a cookbook that comprises worldwide Michelin chefs’ signature dishes. This cookbook not only demonstrates a diverse recipe but also the story behind each chef and their dishes.

A set of dim but vibrant color is assigned to be the chapter opener to capture the mood of each chefs’ singnature dish. The color palette has the ability to tell a better story of each chef’s restless work ethic and their years of experience.
