Savoring Your Words: Writing Your Food Traditions – Spring 2021

“Pull up a chair. Take a taste. Come join us. Life is so endlessly delicious.” — Ruth Reichl

Learn how to convey the most elemental of experiences in words that will be savored long after your work is read. We’ll read compelling food narratives and give you the ingredients to create essays that capture your food heritage. For all levels.

Ellen Birkett Morris has written about food for Cooking Light, The National Culinary Review, NPR’s Kitchen Window, Gastronomica, Alimentum, and The Courier-Journal. Ellen edited an international cookbook for the Louisville Metro Office for International Affairs, based in Louisville, Kentucky, where she resides.
