IKEA Cook This Page at home

IKEA’S Cook This Page, an in-store promotion in Canada, has won a Grand Prix award at the Clio Awards. The IKEA Cook This Page campaign involved a set of printed recipe sheets distributed to IKEA stores to encourage use of IKEA kitchenware and food products. “The Cook This Page Parchment Paper Recipe Series,” a collection of easy-to-make recipes printed on cookable parchment paper. With step-by-step instructions and a list of ingredients precisely illustrated on the parchment paper to match actual proportions, the only thing one had to do was add food, roll it all up and bake it. The sheets are printed with food-safe ink. With the fill-in-the-blank directions, you can place the salmon, meatballs, shrimps, fruit crumble and other ingredients inside the printed layouts. Finally, roll up the paper with all the ingredients and get ready to cook your meal.

IKEA store managers created in-store events across Canada to show that cooking can be fun, simple and exploratory. Posters were offered to customers as they selected kitchen ware and ingredients. All 12,500 parchment paper recipes available in 18 locations were snatched up within hours.
