Noodles Every Day is author Corinne Trang's second book for Chronicle Books. We designed it in 2008. The book needed to visually sync with the look of her previous book, The Asian Grill.

We updated the colors for a fresher, more urban mood, and designed fun and energetic chapter openers that mixed the new color palette with the beautiful photography. The book is softbound, with french flaps.

Directly after completing the layouts, we began cooking from the book—always a bonus of designing cookbooks, especially good ones like this. Our favorite is udon noodles with spicy cabbage sauce.
