This posting includes two maps used to collate recipes.
The first is hand-drawn and includes rich, hand-drawn graphics. Its purpose is to draw together recipes from different books and to group them by ingredient or recipe type. The references to the recipes are page numbers and are colour coded by author. You can see the key in the top left hand side.
The second map is a Mind Manager map. It too pulls together recipes from different sources although this time they are all by the same food writer. The recipes were found on the internet and printed as image files to my desktop (using Repligo). They were then linked to the central topic as hyperlinks and I added images from the websites where available. An alternative approach is to have created hyperlinks to the web pages themselves.
