How to Develop Recipes for Publication
Whether you want to write a cookbook or articles for magazines, a blog or websites, you need to know the essential skills and techniques it takes to create recipes that not only taste great when you make them but can be successfully recreated by readers. Along with prolific cookbook author and food writer Marge Perry, you’ll learn how to create recipes that appeal to readers; what to do in the kitchen to ensure your recipes work for everyone; and how to write recipes that are accurate, clear and easy to read. In this two-day workshop, we’ll go over the conventions and craft of recipe writing, actually develop a recipe in the kitchen, and practice writing recipes. You’ll come away with a solid and market-ready knowledge of how to create recipes that are ready to be published. Marge Perry has created thousands of recipes for publication, including those for Every Day With Rachael Ray, Cooking Light, Self, Better Homes & Gardens, her longstanding Newsday column, and more. In addition, she has contributed to more than 20 cookbooks and written two of her own. Her writing and recipes appear on many websites, including her blog, A Sweet and Savory Life.
