From Page to Stove: How Recipes Communicate:

📘 Behind the Spine
Industry Salon
11:00 am

A cookbook author develops and writes a recipe. In a different place and time, a home cook brings that recipe to life in their kitchen. How does this happen? This panel will explore the many ways recipes communicate and instruct, through language that both tells the cook what they should and shouldn't do, allows for variations in equipment and ingredients, uses formal cookbook language to seat the reader, throws that language to the wind in the name of instructional metaphor, uses design and photography to guide, and more. Because, when you think about it, the fact that recipes work at all is magical—but a lot of very thoughtful elements go into that magic.
