If you haven't see this site yet, it's a blog where artists submit a recipe they illustrated and already they've had submissions from all around the world. My friend, Lisa, turned me on to it and now I check in a few times a week to see what's new! BTW- Check out Lisa's Girls Rule prints. They're really beautifully designed.
The style of my illustration is a little different from my usual stuff- I was paying homage to a wonderful illustrator, Bob Staake, who uses very bold shapes to form his characters. So the chef is either made up of or cut out of a lot of different ovals. then everything was layered and shadows were added sparingly. Check out Bob's illustrations- I think you'll realize that you've seen him around (most notably on covers of the New Yorker).
Oh, and yeah- those are real meatballs. I defrosted a bunch that I had made, photographed them and then ate the evidence.
