Food writer Dianne Jacob said "A well written recipe is like poetry." But much like a poem, there are rules to writing a good one. Whether you're documenting your Grandmother's cooking to pass down in a family cookbook, or you're preparing recipes for a professional cookbook proposal, this class will help you write clear, organized recipes.
Join food writer Sarah Lohman for a class that looks at the history and evolution of the written recipe before diving into recipe composition. We'll analyze the introduction, format, weights and measurements, common writing mistakes, the importance of descriptive language, and the process of recipe testing.
Lohman will use examples from her personal experience prepping recipes for publication. Students will workshop a recipe together, and there will be plenty of time for questions and conversation.
Writing Recipes takes place Sunday 11/17 from 3:30-5:30p at Larder Delicatessen and Bakery (1455 W 29th St, Cleveland, OH 44113).
