This is a live, virtual class that will meet via Zoom. 

Because of the pandemic, many of us will be spending the holidays apart. But we can still feel connected through our favorite foods.

In  his class, Sarah will teach you how to write an organized, easy to follow recipe so you can pass on --or collect -- those favorite seasonal dishes. Whether you're documenting your Grandmother's cooking or preparing recipes for a professional cookbook proposal, this class will help.

We'll briefly look at the evolution of the written recipe before diving into recipe composition, including:

  • the introduction
  • formatting
  • weights and measurements
  • common mistakes
  • descriptive language
  • recipe testing.

Sarah will use examples from her personal experience prepping recipes for publication, and there will be plenty of time for questions and conversation.
