There are many people who I know who teach food writing but, honestly, no one does it like Dianne Jacob. Her lovely book "Will Write for Food" has been on my nightstand for as long as I can remember. It has been an excellent companion for me as I try to navigate the world of food writing.
I was very thrilled to hear that she had come out with an updated version of this already excellent book. It is filled great information on food blogging, writing cookbooks and I am really impressed with the section on writing recipes. It has in-depth information on writing memoirs. Really an amazing book. If you write about food, then your home library should DEFINITELY have a copy of this book.
In addition, I recommend that you follow Dianne on Twitter - @diannej. She is always on the money when it comes to writing about the goings on in the world of food writing and publishing.
On a scale of 1-10, this book is an 11.
