A TASTE FOR WRITING: COMPOSITION FOR CULINARIANS, Second Edition is the ideal resource to help culinary arts students and professionals master key grammar principles and writing practices while learning to express themselves as confidently on the page as they do in the kitchen. The author's signature writing style is engaging and accessible. Drawing on the language of food and cooking, she explains even the most difficult topics in a way sure to spark students' interest and encourage mastery of the material. Key concepts are brought to life through the analysis of student and professional writing samples, as well as the use of vivid examples from the food industry and popular culture. A variety of exercises leads students through all phases of the writing process, from the creative right-brain activities of generating ideas and writing a first draft to the analytical left-brain skills required for effective revision and editing. Although created specifically for culinary arts students and professionals, this one-of-a-kind book can be used by all readers to develop their skills in - and taste for - writing.
