In preparation for the first Austin Food Blogger Alliance community cookbook, we are hosting a recipe writing class to help improve the recipes that we submit for publication.
Recipe development, writing and testing can be tricky, so we're enlisting some people who know more than a little about this process: Ann Clark, (author of "Quick Cuisine" and "Ann Clark's Fabulous Fish" and founder of Austin's first cooking school), Karen Morgan (founder of Blackbird-bakery.com and author of "Blackbird Bakery Gluten-Free") and Michael Chu (of the award-winning blog, CookingForEngineers.com) will walk us through some of the pitfalls that beginning recipe writers often fall into and help navigate some of the more nuanced steps of creating recipes that are clear, concise and easy to follow.
Elizabeth Engelhardt, an American history and women's studies professor at the University of Texas who specializes in foodways, will kick off the class with brief history of community cookbooks and a reminder of why they still matter today.
The class is free to members and $15 for non-members, who can pay at the door or through Paypal on this invitation.
A note about location: The class will be in a conference room on the Plaza Level of the Whole Foods at Sixth Street and Lamar Boulevard. (You can access the Plaza level via the elevators marked “office” from P1 or P2 parking levels, or via the staircase from the surface parking lot, and through the double glass doors. This is the same room where TechMunch was held last year.)
Email Addie Broyles if you have questions about the class, email@example.com.
