In this chapter, we are about to learn in-depth about how to do 'Food Writing'. In the olden times when humanity wasn't that civilized the role of food was restricted to survival. But now in the contemporary era, it is not just the question about satiating our hunger. We eat food for the love of it, to entertain and stimulate our taste buds! Food is about the colour, it is also about the smell, the feel, the texture, the tenderness, the crunch, the sizzle, the zeal, and the festivity to have it! This inevitably explains why so many writers are gratified towards this genre.
If someone calls us to their house to share a meal with us, they are not just opening their doors for us but their heart as well. As humans, we all have experienced how it feels like to taste a savoury meal. So the basic framework of writing and talking about it is known to all. If one has made up their mind to become a food writer, it is necessary for them to know that food writing comes with many diverse niches. Also, one has to be more creative with how they present the same old thing in their writing with a personal touch.
Food writing is all about emotion and intensity – a lust for food, the sensations, and flavours. Food writers are as diverse as a kaleidoscope with their multi-faceted perspectives, shapes, and images rendered in it. Food writing is as a wide rainbow: from historians and novelists to restaurant consultants and reporters, and from daily bloggers to photography lovers. The basic subject in food writing might be food; however, it is additionally about existence, the life expectancy of food, and the enthusiasm each food critic has about the delightful world they live in. The main necessity to be a food writer is to have a craze for food and composed words.
