British cartoonish Gemma Correll illustrated a menu guide that fits right in with her history of artwork that depicts life's simple but familiar things. Her recently illustrated book about a dog's life had viral success and she is following it up with this satirical menu guide.

Restaurant menus often features little graphic icons beside each food listed that depicts what type of food it is. For example, a menu listing could be shown as vegan with a leaf graphic beside the title or it could be labeled gluten-free with a crossed-out wheat bundle illustration.

Gemma's ‘Decoding Your Menu’ guide features similar icons, but they are much more humorous. For example, she illustrates the description "May Contain Peanuts" with an actual Peanuts Comic character.
