2.0 out of 5 stars Buy this if you want to be a food writer, 30 Jun 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Will Write for Food: The Complete Guide to Writing Cookbooks, Restaurant Reviews, Articles, Memoir, Fiction and More (Will Write for Food: The Complete Guide to Writing Blogs,) (Paperback)
I bought this to read on holiday thinking that it was a collection of food writing. It isn't, its for people who want to be food writers, I'm sure that it has a lot of good information if you want to get published but it focuses on the American market rather than the UK. Some information is relevant for both UK & US but some isn't, for example it says that you don't need to put weights in recipes as cooks in the US don't have weighing scales. I don't know whether this is true but its not relevant to the UK market.

I guess the clue was in the title " The complete guide to writing cookbooks..."

Have to agree. This book couldn't make it any more obvious that it is for people that want to write about food.
