An edible cookbook? Why not!

This is a Hipmunk post from Jodi Ettenberg of Legal Nomads A creative project from German design firm Korefe takes a cookbook and makes it different… and edible.

A whole new way to look at guacomole

This is a Hipmunk post from Jodi Ettenberg of Legal Nomads Part of what makes travel so interesting for me is its ability to take the familiar and make it totally unfamiliar once again.
