Food Writing Recommendations?
Hi Guys! I've been a lurker for a while and this is my first post! I've been interested in food writing for a long time but I can't seem to find many places online for good recommendations. Are there any books or articles recently that you could recommend?
I thought "The Glabrous Fruit of Samarkand" by Adam Leith Gollner in Lucky Peach #2 was really good. Anyone else read it?
Also good are "Swimming with Spears" by Endo Tetsuhiko and "Eating Ukraine and Its Lard(er)" by Katrina Kollegaeva
The last two articles are printed in Gastronomica and I got to read it using my university account.
(disclaimer, I'm not a writer).
What kind of recommendations are you looking for ?
How to write ? things to write about ? ways to get published ?
One good easy and cheap way to start writing for a public is to start a blog with one of the many free-ish blog site out there (blogger, wordpress, ... )
Just make a simple one, and start pumping out words; get hold of a good grammar, dictionary and thesaurus to help you get out of over simplified sentences (do not go overboard with those).
Write a few small daily blog entries; then write a longer weekly entry; once you have a good cursus, you can start sending some texts to magazines (paper/electronic) and try to get published.
Never fear rejection.
