ENGH 232 - Food Writing

4 credits
Writing about food invites students to practice the art of description and to understand the relationship between writing and experience, language and desire. From cookbooks, magazines, and websites to restaurant reviews, cultural guides, and television shows, the role of food writing is to inform, but also to foster curiosity and to create a desire in readers to experience what the writer describes. In this way, perfecting the art of food writing also strengthens aspects of the writer’s craft that may be used in other persuasive contexts. Students will explore the role of audience, purpose, and context as they read a variety of forms of food writing and practice food writing in print and digital formats.
