    Often you should go on Handwritten, modern script font with sometimes a workhorse companion for bakeries and traditionnal European food.
    If it is exotic food, pick a typeface which remind people of the country which the product comes even if it is cliché (ie. use latino or mayan-like fonts if it is about South American food).
    If you gonna make a simple recipe book, write the text with a simple serif font as Garamond or Times and go with a nice looking sans serif type for titles.

    Here are my advices about cooking info.

    I think 'Cantoria MT Light' for 'pull-quotes' along with 'Glypha LT Std' for a 'Drop-cap' and 'Adobe Garamond Pro' for the body. Lovely stuff

    Cooking Fonts

    Hello there! There are tons of good, cool cooking-fonts, it really depends what kind of «style» you're looking for – sweets, bakery, or rather fish etc.

    I can recommend you these two:
    Rene Menue is cool, because it has also drawn cooking icons in it.


    Or Capucine font,
    I've used it in a cooking recipe for Pasta:

    I think it totally depends on the type of cookbook /cuisine or food type / customer or fan base. What's appropriate for a food truck is totally different than what works for a fine dining establishment.


    Slab serifs for something fun and quirky, like packaging for handmade confections:
    Lunchbox, Lunchbox Slab, Gluten, Love Potion, Quayside, Sherbet


    For something modern yet clean & traditional (I'm thinking menus or packaging):
    try mixing Archer with a clean script like: Susa, Brand, or Thirsty


    Bold, modern display faces:
    Brandon Printed (for some reason this seems like it would be good in a cookbook or menu geared towards Grilling) or Frido Narrow

    While I personally am not a huge fan of it,

    Ive seen few food magazines using Thirsty lately... hopefully its not the trend... I found them a bit hard to read x_x
