“What Katie Ate'” is beautifully illustrated with lots and lots of gorgeous color pics. I love the way the entire book is laid out. Looks kinda like you are looking through a stack of Katie’s recipe cards with photos to match.This style of cookbook is apparently called a food-photography-cookbook and I love it. The photos and written descriptions of the recipes made my mouth water. The book itself is very well made good binding and nice heavy paper.
