UPDATED: We have a winner!
Congratulations to Jennifer Pellette with the winning submission! We agree, writing about food is all about a great story!
Writing about food is combining two things that people love, a great story and food. Food can tell a story all on its own, when you get a big bowl of rich steaming pasta with thick hearty red sauce with a bit of parm sprinkled over the top, basil,garlic and oragano scents wafting out to greet you…You think of family, comfort, home. If you have a soft home baked amarosa roll, dripping with cheese, steak , carmalized onions and peppers you may think of a good time while eating a Philly cheesesteak, hanging with friends and family.
Food plays a huge part in our lives. We can recreate those thoughts and memories by the words we use and how we describe the foods we eat. A fruit is juicy, a cake is moist. You also want to know what you are getting into. You wouldn’t want to dive into a bowl of noodles. What is that? Noodles and what? does it have anything else? Or what if you just seen some thing that said “cake”? hmmmm How about Decant black forest cake, with layers of creamy chocolate mousse and sweet cherry filling all topped with light whipped cream and dark chocolate shavings…It is also about information. I love food, lets talk about it all day:)
Thank you to everyone who participated in this LongHouse Giveaway. Look out for more great giveaways in the future!
