How to Find Your Voice as a Food Writer Without Getting Death Threats or Scolded By Your Primary Care Physician

The day Blair Anthony Robertson started writing his first restaurant review was the same day he wished he had never been selected as restaurant critic at the Sacramento Bee. How he got past that mix of dread and paralysis is part of what he’ll explain in his talk on how to write about food. In addition to talking about what it’s like to make a living as a food writer, he’ll go through some of the most important elements of being a writer, give his take on how to become more professional in your work (even if you’re doing it as a side gig), explain how to give your writing style and personality, and he’ll take the audience through an interactive tasting-and-describing experience to help you come up with the right words for all those flavors.
