“It was nice to take a snapshot of so many styles of food writing. Even the recipe alone can be executed with such variety and creativity, depending on what the writer wants to communicate. This appeals to my interests very specifically because it gave me the chance to explore where my style fits in—and to consider new styles.

The highlight of the class would be the selection of pieces that we read. It was great to expand my mind and scribble down in my notes the reading I’m going to do beyond the course—things I’ve never heard of, things to follow up on, and books and authors to track down. That is to say: all the hard work [the instructor] went through to make such a comprehensive handbook is totally appreciated and will remain with me.

The whole format of the workshop allows for maximum content and productivity. It was a fantastic weekend.”
