Marcella Kriebel '07
“Comida Latina: An Illustrated Cookbook”
Alumna uses her majors to publish her first illustrated cookbook
Artist and food enthusiast Marcella Kriebel ’07 is building upon her Willamette study-abroad experiences to find success in the world of self-publishing.
So far, 457 backers from around the world have pledged $30,880.
“The immersion that happens when one studies abroad really does change who you are,” she says. “Since those first times in Latin America, I’ve made a point to learn authentic recipes when I travel.”
Due to the mentorship she received as a student, Kriebel says she's learned to explore her artistic talent and to identify connections between the land and its resources.
“My Willamette liberal arts education showed me the great interconnectivity between art, cultural politics and history,” Kriebel says. “Exploring such a variety of things helped to form my world view.”
Kriebel is planning another food-themed book project, along with a new series of paintings and illustrations.
