Author of Onaka ga hetta [I’m Hungry] and Ekiben to fukei [Train Lunches and Sceneries], Mame Ikeda is a talented illustrator and painter who focuses on creating picture books, illustrations for books, magazines, and food packaging.
Her latest publication Savor is a long-awaited revised and reprinted edition of her food diary, which is her lifework, showcasing her dynamic brush strokes that convey the joy and craving of eating. The picture diary includes her written observations and impressions — she adds shop cards and packaging labels to some pages too.
The book is bound in a way that directly incorporates the diary’s contents — full of memories, places and times — into the book format. While the diary is a personal record of daily life, it also serves as a guide for readers to the best food recommendations that one would get from a close friend — brimming with comfort and delight.

Swiss Rolls
I strongly feel that Swiss Rolls are all about the hiragana character “の” [no].
When you make coffee, you would pour water over the coffee in a way that resembles writing the character “の”.
To tie a bag that’s easy to untie, just tie it like the character “の”.
There is something remarkable about this character — I suddenly fell in love with it.
— Excerpt from the book
