In this project, I developed and design a cookbook for Cal Poly students to teach techniques and highlight experiences of exceptional local cuisine within Slo county. Cooking in college is usually viewed as either a daunting task or a stress-relieving activity. Wherever each individual may fall on that spectrum, I feel passionate that there is a need for an educational cookbook tailored specifically to Cal Poly San Luis Obispo students.

This opportunity for students who are competent chefs will serve as an extension of techniques with the immersion of local Slo food experiences that can broaden their cooking pallet and passion. As for students who presume they are apathetic towards cooking, this book will serve as an introspective development to one's idea of their own cooking capabilities in conjunction with the authentic culinary experiences their county obtains. The final deliverable is a cookbook filled with 3 recipes and 3 Slo culinary experiences, that will cultivate an urge to cook for specifically Cal Poly Students.
