We were given a brief by Great British Chefs, one of the fastest growing food websites in the UK, and a client of Mustard Design Agency, to create notebooks for both their team, clients and industry colleagues.

As the go-to destination for food lovers in search of recipe inspiration, technical expertise and the latest chef and restaurant news and reviews, we had tour work cut out. We decided to create a range of classic notebooks suitable for a fine dining restaurant, as well as some photo-real notebooks to showcase the work of the chefs, outside of the kitchen.

We included a purple hard leather Monsieur Notebook, made with a single piece of thick tough leather, that was foiled in white with the Great British Chefs logo. This cover material would be great for the chefs in the kitchen, featuring a splash proof polymer coating, resistant to oil and moisture.

Just in case GBC were looking to impress VIP diners, we included a soft leather Monsieur Notebook in red. This rich Italian leather would be better suited to the dining room, and could be given as a gift at the end of a fantastic meal.

As a promotional item for journalists and bloggers looking to review the best of a restaurant’s dishes, we included a few examples of a custom printed cover notebook, featuring crisp photography of haute cuisine. A comparatively low-cost option, these are great adverts for a restaurant’s offer.

Also included were our non-leather Monsieur Notebooks in red and black; a classic edition to the range, and a staple favourite in any office.
