4 Types of Recipe Illustrations

Here are 4 types of visual notes to describe a recipe.
1. Relationship Map. Make a diagram to show the process of how the ingredients change and when they are combined. This type will simply explain how to cook by showing the relationships between the ingredients and the dish.

2. Flow. Tell the flow of cooking by illustrating each step. As well as “relationship map,” this will make an easy-to-understand recipe visual note.

3. Text & Illustration. Describe the ingredients and whole cooking process by text and use illustrations for only what you need to describe visually.

4. Ingredients. Show the ingredients rather than the process of cooking. This type is appropriate for dishes whose cooking methods are simple or well-known, such as sandwiches, smoothies, or salads.
