Recently I picked up a copy of Will Write For Food. I was in a rush and thought it was a memoir…
Turns out, it isn’t a memoir at all, it’s "The Complete Guide to Writing Cookbooks, Restaurant Reviews, Articles, Memoir, Fiction and More…" (Had I only stopped to read the cover…)
Whatever it is or isn’t I still devoured it and now I thought I might suggest it to you all as a great resource.
What it is, is a book on how to write about food, and how to become a published food writer. Tips, tricks and more. Interesting stuff indeed. I was really impressed and plan on incorporating her thoughts to improve my own style (or lack thereof…)
Even if you are like me - NOT an aspiring (paid) food writer - there is a LOT of really good, really insightful information and exercises on everything from how to structure a recipe to ethics on reviewing a restaurant.
I was so charmed, I wrote an email to the author, Dianne Jacob, via her website , and she graciously replied, which I just loved. She also mentioned she is aware of this site (maybe she will include it in her next printing?) which made me smile.
For the record, no, I have no stake in her sales, I just wanted to share with you all about this great resource. I strongly urge you to check it out.
