Here’s a Cookbook You Literally Have to Slice Open to Read


Because knife skills are the first thing you learn in culinary school, Escuela de Cocina Carulla cooking school in Bogota, Columbia created this unique introductory cookbook to test their students’ knowledge, cut by cut.

Designed by Ogilvy & Mather Bogota, the cookbook makes students work for their recipes by requiring them to literally slice through their workbook pages. By following precise lines, the perforated guides help to ensure the students learn to make clean cuts.

Sounds easy enough right?

When successful, the student is rewarded with a recipe, ensuring they keep up with the rest of the class. If they somehow manage to completely avoid the knife guidelines,  a Rachel Green unintentional recipe mash-up might ensue.

English Trifles and Shepard’s Pies don’t mix kids.

Keep your knives handy, because of the immense popularity of this hands-on cookbook a second edition is on the way. Allez cuisine!
