Food Criticism — Ryan Sutton — Room 430
This two-session course will focus on criticism and commentary in modern food writing. During the first session we’ll analyze three of the most common kinds of food-related reviews: the restaurant review, the cookbook review, and gastronomic awards. In the second session, the instructor and class will critique the 500-word reviews each student will write on a restaurant, cookbook, or rankings list. Ryan Sutton is the chief food critic for Eater.com and the founding editor of The Price Hike and Big Deal blogs. He previously wrote about food for Bloomberg News.
