Infographic: Initial Research

After speaking with Alan about my infographic, I managed to make it more focused. The title is yet to be confirmed as I'm not sure how to fit everything in. The idea is to make step-by-step guide on how to cook Jell-O in 60's style. I looked up a lot of recipes from the 50's till 70's and I decided to go for the most disgusting one, which appears to be anything Jell-O. It's rather weird how they used to make almost everything in jelly and tuna.

These are some of the articles I looked up:

I also looked up chefs to get better idea of how boring a cooking show can be:
