We’re looking for tea towel cheat sheets to empower home cooks to tackle common questions from conversion charts to temperature help to ingredient identification.


Overview

How many teaspoons are in a tablespoon? Is mayo a good substitute for eggs? What’s the optimal brew time for my oolong tea? Do you find yourself asking endless questions while working in the kitchen? What if you had a kitchen tea towel handy with all the answers? For this challenge, you’ll find a balance of form and function as you organize the info in a way that’s both visually appealing and easily digestible (pun intended).
