How to Cook a Book

Food is personal. Food is universal. Food is never just about food. We’ll sample a feast of food writing and share a table with Alice B. Toklas, Seamus Heaney, Sharon Olds, and prose from classic cookbooks. We’ll find the sweet spot where public and private lives collide in the kitchen. We’ll explore the nature of the recipe, then learn how to write and edit our own. Let’s write stories, poems, or essays about the dog-eared, sauce-spattered cookbook we’ve been writing since birth.
