How to Write a Recipe

How to Write a Recipe

Thinking of writing a cookbook or a magazine/newspaper article with recipes? Whether you are a professional chef, an aspiring food writer/cookbook author, or an established writer who would like to be able to include recipes in your pieces, you need to learn how to write clear, compelling recipes that make people want to cook your food. With nationally syndicated food writer Marge Perry, you'll learn the rules that all good recipes must follow --- and the techniques that give a recipe personality without detracting from clarity. The class will include exercises to practice great recipe writing, and information on how to develop recipes for publication. Marge Perry writes a syndicated column for Newsday, is a contributing editor for Cooking Light and Health, a columnist for myrecipes.com, and a former columnist for Better Homes & Gardens and Prevention. She also blogs at asweetandsavorylife.com. Her work appears in Self, Parenting, The New York Times, and many other publications. She reviews restaurants, has contributed to over 20 cookbooks (as well as written her own) and makes frequent television appearances.
