I mean who wouldn’t want to cook with Martin Scorsese? Food-obsessed Risograph printers and publishing house Hato Press are back with a mouthwatering follow up to cult 2015 project Cooking with Scorsese. No doubt the most visually satisfying cookbook to ever hit your kitchen shelves, volume two is bound in pomodoro (or blood, depending on how you look at it) red with inside pages in monochrome to match the black and white films which inspired the book – Goodfellas, Juzo Itami Tampopo and Benny & Joon.
“The typeface was drawn by Hato specifically for the Cooking with Scorsese project,” Hato’s co-founder and creative director Ken Kirton tells It’s Nice That. “It was designed in reference to classic Italian cookbooks with unusual details inspired by MGM’s title sequences.”
If anything, Cooking With Scorsese is wasted in the kitchen: the book is less Italian recipe guide, more comic book told through film stills. But at least food will be served up at the events which Hato runs alongside the project. “We haven’t released who we will be working with for this latest edition for 2017,” Ken says, “but past events were held at Peckham Refreshment Rooms, Somerset House, V&A and in Tokyo. These included kimchi competitions, Tennis racket mashed gnocchi and a curated Japanese Obento.” Cooking with Scorsese also exists in an additional, interactive form as a micro-site, which allows Hato to “expand the library of shots.”
