“Logan’s Chef Notes and Half Baked Tales”, national winner for First Cookbook, is a graphic novel adventure. Logan released the cookbook as the next generation of cooking books. A new concept in cookbooks, it is separated into two segments. The first part of the book is created in a manga storyline while the second half of the book focuses on food and cooking techniques. Logan explains, “Cooking Dreams is my imagination. I want to inspire kids to think like a chef, to learn about food, and to add a dash of creativity. And above all, I want them to work toward their dreams. To me, the book is magical.” He adds, “The Gourmand Award is a huge recognition for all those who put their love into this dream.”
