presents: Introduction to Food Writing

Say you’re a chef. Or a frequent restaurant-goer. Or perhaps you’re one of those people who bore other people at parties by incessantly talking about an eggplant you saw at the Santa Monica Farmer’s Market. Well, this blog’s sponsor,, can help you turn your passion into a paycheck with a six-week class called Basic Training: Introduction to Food Writing. (Which is ironic, actually, because I hear the food at real Basic Training is awful.) It’s taught by Laurie Buckle, the managing editor of ‘Bon Appetit,’ who will share secrets from her twenty-five years in the industry.

The class will run for the next six Thursday nights in Hollywood. More info here.
