Overview

The cookbook as chronicle – of a region, a family, a life, an era – has been and continues to be a rich genre, full of potential for the seasoned as well as half-ripe writer!

Putting together even a slim little collection of family-favourite recipes,  or the specialities of a once-agile aunt or parent’s wizardry at the table, the anecdotes surrounding them, is a beautiful way to cherish, even pay homage, to chronicle, a way of life.

If you believe the saying that ‘cooking is love made edible’, and writing about it renders all of it even more memorable, this webinar is for you.

As a precursor to a full-fledged workshop, Living Bridge presents a 1.5-hour webinar with writer Gouri Dange, who has written extensively on food – and found a way to lace even her fiction with food-stories. The webinar is a stand-alone event for which you can enroll, without necessarily going ahead to take part in the workshop.

Kitchen Tales Webinar Writing Cookbook Chronicles

The webinar will touch upon:

  • Finding a theme, a Focal point for your book/booklet.
  • How to weave Food and Narrative as the warp and weft of your writing
  • Deciding the Format and Scope of your book.
  • Offering your Writing Services to people who would like to put together this kind of food memoir.
  • Design choices, Publishing avenues, Funding ideas.
  • A List of hand-picked, slow-cooked books to Read and Savour.
  • Participants will also take part in one Writing Exercise to help them develop an idea.

This webinar, and subsequently the workshop, is for people who want to branch out into this genre of writing as well as for anyone, who may want to put together one particular book, for the family, friends, or a community.
