And then comes the idea... . I like to draw and record what inspires me in notes and sketches. From the explored experience and from my sketches, I then create a recipe out of it. The sketch is the attempt to represent an idea, also a draft, a concept, a first overview. It can be a note (also a mental note drafted on paper) or a preliminary drawing, which does not have to be detailed or elaborate. It can be the memory of a taste or an aroma, a word, an image, a texture, an object, a color or all that together in a collage. Creative thinking is the combination of associative elements in new combinations. These combinations can form the basis for a later recipe. A recipe that still exists in this phase, only in our heads, or, as shown below, on a sheet of paper (or several).
Each of the following sketches inspired me to create a recipe, but they can also be seen independently and may inspire you to create your own recipe.
