The Real Cookbook by KOREFE

I rarely delve into food here, but once in a blue moon some culinary curiosity veers into the world of design. Take, for example, the first and only edible cookbook.

German design firm KOREFE created this 100% edible volume out of sheets of pasta, as a special project for a large publishing house. The book can be opened page by page, then filled with layers of ingredients and baked as a lasagna.

I discovered The Real Cookbook on a friend's Facebook wall, so I don't have much information. I can just barely glean from the German (and Google translate) that the pages are printed with instructions for making lasagna, but what I can't seem to figure out is where, or if, this is being sold. Anyone?


  1. That's so damn cool! And as a bonus, it looks delicious and now I want lasagna for dinner.
