Dorothy Kalins, James Beard Award winner and founding editor of Saveur magazine, commissioned DMD to art direct two extremely different cookbooks:

The Zahav story is beautiful, heart-wrenching, and inspiring. Israeli cuisine is at its center, but people are at its core. Using bold graphics, elegant typography, and Michael Persico’s vivid photography, intimate essays and rewarding recipes lace together. Zahav won both the James Beard Best Cookbook of the Year Award and the Best International Cookbook Award.

The flipside of fine dining can just as distinctive. With enticing photography, artwork by local Philly artists, simple recipes perfected for the home, a rigorous donut-burning workout, and the five partners cast as bobbleheads(!), Federal Donuts happily provides the secrets to its nationally-known exquisite cake donuts and twice-fried chicken made with exotic spices and rich flavors.
