Descrizione prodotto


Library Journal, October 2010
“A delicious guide to the world of food writing…An engaging, informative handbook for hobbyists and aspiring professionals. Worth purchasing even if you have the first edition.”
, 9/27/10
“An excellent manual. It puts food writing into perspective and I rather suspect it will help raise the standards of the genre.”, 10/17/10
“This is an amazing book—a must read to all aspiring food writers and bloggers…[A] very comprehensive guidebook to the world of food writing.”

San Francisco Book Review, 11/9/10

“Part instructional, part inspirational manual, Will Write for Food gives writers—both novice and skilled—thorough information about how to get started on food blogging, restaurant reviewing, cookbook and recipe writing, nonfiction and fiction writing, as well as how to get published…A must-have writing reference made for anyone interested in food and words.”, 12/3/10
“Simple and straight forward, Dianne Jacob's no nonsense approach makes it seem like any one of us can be food writers.”

Portland Oregonian, 1/4/11, 8/3/10

“Should be mandatory reading for everyone who aspires to be a food writer. No matter the format, medium, or style, Jacob has it covered. . . . You'll find important and helpful advice for anyone interested in blogging, creating recipes, writing a food memoir, or shooting food porn. There are also “Writing Exercises” to help you hone your skills. . . . Probably the best part of the book is that she turns to seasoned and respected professionals for advice, names you'd recognize in a heartbeat: Michael Bauer, David Lebovitz, Judith Jones, Adam Roberts, Deborah Madison, and Dorie Greenspan—just to name a few. Yes, it can seem like the world of food writing is an overcrowded one and Jacob's upfront and honest account can be a little unnerving for the faint of heart: It's not as glamorous as it seems, timing and luck do play a part, and the money doesn't always follow. But if knowledge is key, Will Write for Food can help open the coveted door.”

Bookviews, September 2010

“It is filled with good advice about the various genres of food writing. I have been a professional writer for decades so I can confirm that this is the real deal…It is an essential tool for every foodie hoping to put pen to page.”


Dianne Jacob, a journalist and food-writing instructor, has been writing about food for twenty years. She is the coauthor of Grilled Pizzas & Piadinas and lives in Oakland, California.

5.0 su 5 stelle Will Write for Food by Dianne Jacob "Extraordinary" 15 maggio 2014
Di Bea L - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
Before you start a blog, journal, cookbook or any type of creative writing "STOP" this is a must have book that will save you a lot of trouble, heartache and sleep. It makes everything much easier and gives you just the place to start and how to get started with your blog. So many people have taken to the internet and decided to stay at home with their children and try to pursue a profitable blog about food, do it your-self or maybe fashion and you NEED this book long before you start in that direction. It will save you much needed time. Ms. Jacob has done all the researching for you and has valuable information for you. BUY THE BOOK! I am so glad I did after being so overwhelmed on my own it helped me so much and I am not finished with it yet.

5.0 su 5 stelle A MUST READ FOR ANY ASPIRING FOOD WRITER 25 novembre 2010
Di Peace of Mind - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
Dianne Jacob has done us and myself personally, a good service. Whether you are setting up a new food blog, or whether you already have one - whether you are writing a cookery book, whether you write a column in a magazine, or whether you review restaurants, this book is invaluable for the information, advice and guidance that if offers. The style of writing is also very accessible with a refreshing approach and delivery.

Whatever your needs are with regards to writing about food, Dianne Jacob is the Food Guru. I have looked into so many other books to try and find professional help in this area, but nothing can touch this book.

Dianne Jacob's book is inspiring and confidence-boosting, and is packed with tips that all food writers - whether amateurs or aspiring professionals - need. I am particularly grateful also for the amount of contacts, references and links to useful organizations which she includes, that are very helpful to have access to.

So, in short, if you are wanting to move forward, if you are stuck in a rut, or if you just want to polish up your act, learn more, or simply garnish your platter with gold dust information, then 'Will Write For Food' is the book for you.

Two words come to mind, actually 3 to be more precise: EXCELLENT CONTENT - THANKS !

5.0 su 5 stelle Will Write for Food by Dianne Jacob 19 luglio 2010

Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
I received my copy of Dianne Jacob's book Will Write for Food: The Complete Guide to Writing Cookbooks, Blogs, Reviews, Memoir, and More (Will Write for Food: The Complete Guide to Writing Blogs,) from Amazon on Saturday and I was up reading all night long! Dianne has put into one place all the information that you need if you are ready to learn about "food writing." This book is the one you need on your desk as you go forth to write - no matter if you blog, create recipes, review restaurants or books,or hope to break out with the next new Cooking Bible! And if you have already finished your work Dianne has covered the subject of getting your work published in any one of the ways available to authors today. A look at the Contents page of this book will certainly get you motivated.
Dianne's style is one that makes learning fun and keeps the reader's interest heightened. There is no doubt that she knows what she is writing about, and that only makes this book all the more valuable to one who is hoping to learn. Dianne covers the technical aspects of food writing as well as the artistic and creative voice of the potential author. This one book qualifies as the "best text" and the number one on the "best reads" lists.
Now I am going back into it with my highlighter! So much good, solid information here that I can't afford to miss any of it! I'll be making notes too. I wish for you the same great adventure that I am having!
5.0 su 5 stelle Very informative book covering the basics! 19 agosto 2013
Di Susan Herrada Alison - Pubblicato su
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
This book was very informative, especially for the novice- or aspiring- food writer. Whether you are interested in creating a food blog, writing a cook book, or writing restaurant reviews, this book serves as a very useful orientation tool. I like that the author not only addresses those individuals that intend on writing about food as a professional endeavor, but also those that consider it a hobby they are passionate about. The book is realistic, clear, concise, and provides a wealth of resources. I would say that, if you want to publish and sell a cook book, you will likely need to do additional research, but this book is a great starting point. Overall, great read!

5.0 su 5 stelle satisfying in every sense 4 ottobre 2010
Di Ecobotanica - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
I am sure there is a global network of appreciating palates that would hungrily lap up this book.
Whether a writer for food, or as in my case, gardens, organics and growing food, Dianne's insights transcends all these topics and is universally relevant.
When devouring this book I just substituted my key words plants/gardens/vegetables/organics for the Diannes words recipe/restaurants/ingredients words and found it works really well.
Thanks Dianne for a terrific wealth of information.
I especially appreciated the easy exercises, her connections to successful food writers' blog pages, their pathways to success and the stories Dianne wove around other writers, linking me to the real people. It's very heartening and inspirational.
I'd highly recommend this book to anyone planning to or already immersed in the field of writing, blogging and reviewing.
