Writing about food is actually quite dramatic — full of the senses, stories of the people involved, and full of “place” too. Everybody’s a food critic. However, becoming a good food writer demands a thorough understanding of the history, language and technique of cooking, and a true and individual voice, combined with the verbal skill to evoke memory and vivid sensuality from bare text. In a field this crowded, a mastery of subject and craft is essential to the writer's success.
In this workshop, students will explore an individual research topic on food, write a restaurant review, interview a restaurant owner or chef, and learn about new opportunities for expression.
