DAWN TAN, illustrator
Bittersweet victory, p48, and Mondo panino, p84
Dawn Tan is an illustrator and teacher with a flair for watercolour. Tan grew up in Singapore, where she says food is an obsession, so painting it was a natural progression. This month she took a break from painting Wagon Wheels and Sara Lee meals, and turned her brushes to GT. Her pitta ripiena and more sit aside John Irving’s history of panini, and Paulette Whitney’s prose is brought to life by her vibrant bitter greens.
