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.”
An excellent manual. It puts food writing into perspective and I rather suspect it will help raise the standards of the genre.”
This is an amazing booka 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 writersboth novice and skilledthorough 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.”
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
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 Greenspanjust 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.”

Plusieurs exercices d'écriture sont proposés à la fin de chaque chapitre, pistes intéressantes pour améliorer son style comme le contenu de ses écrits.
La limite : le livre est écrit pour des Américains, il n'est donc pas vraiment utile pour des Français face au marché de l'édition française, notamment.
Mais je le recommanderais tout de même à toute personne qui lit facilement l'anglais et qui a envie d'améliorer son écriture autour ou sur la nourriture, pour nourrir son blog, des mémoires familiales ou autres.

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 !

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!
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.
