Nowadays, it seems like cookbooks are constantly pushing more and more elaborate ingredients and techniques just to make something to eat. This recipe website is the opposite of that. It features a collection of pasta-only recipes that are completely without pictures, yet are still high quality and are made completely from scratch. Less is more is what the motto is here.
Basic cooking knowledge is required to follow these recipes. Detailed descriptions on how to master making a sauce with just the right consistency with step-by-step assistance will not be given. At the same time, no recipes found on this website will need fancy or complex equipment. A simple wooden or bamboo spoon, a pot for boiling noodles and a saucepan, along with perhaps a skillet, are more than enough.
Additionally, most ingredients required for the recipes are quite simple. Almost every recipe requires just a few spices, salt, pepper, some butter and/or oil, maybe some flour and cheese -and of course the pasta itself- to make something great. Again, less is more here.
So go ahead, get started cooking. Just copy and pasta™ ...er, paste, the text from this website and enjoy cooking! — Juliette
Juliette is a housewife who loves cooking and especially bread-baking. She has some restaurant experience, but most of her culinary knowledge is self-taught. She values practicality and thriftiness when it comes to cooking. Most of the featured recipes cater to a mix of German and American tastes and are completely vegetarian. The purpose of these recipes is to bring nutrition, hard work, love, dedication, and great flavor into the home.
Copy is not just a word meaning duplication, but it also refers to the main body of a text in a book, a brochure or just about any designed medium. For copy and pasta™, copy is just as much name as it is program. This website is based purely on typography, without any images or colour.
We thus needed a typeface that — just like the typeface Juli on Juliette's Recipes — didn’t draw attention to itself, but one with also a little more personality than your average Helveticas and Arials.
I took the grotesk inspired Juli typeface and modified it, took away some of the (purposefully) awkward hand-lettering feel, and increased the contrast in especially the book and bold weights, to give it a really posh, elegant edge. Since this typeface is based on Juli, I named it aptly Julei.
Like Juli, Julei is a fully developed font, and designed specifically for great legibility in thin weights on the web. Like with Juli, if you are interested in obtaining a copy of Julei for desktop or web use, you can CONTACT ME, or visit schrift.co for more information! — Moritz
