HOW TO WRITE ABOUT FOOD

Food is all about our senses - how the dish looks, smells, tastes, and feels.  Practice incorporating all of the senses in your writing. Try describing a favorite dinner or lunch that you made. What do the ingredients look like? How did it smell when cooking or eating? How did it feel when you were chopping or pouring or working with the ingredients? What tastes can you pick out and describe? What textures can you pick out and describe either in your mouth or on the plate? How did it sound when you were cooking or biting into it?
