In this day and age where people complain that they have no time to read or stay informed, I’m heartened there are projects such as “Cooking Up Stories.”
The second ebook published by the Sunnyvale Public Library, it features 18 short stories about food that were written by Silicon Valley residents.
Do you like to share your opinions about food? And photograph what you eat or cook?
Then, you’ll want to join me and award-winning food photographer Craig Lee when we host a workshop, “#Footography,” 7 p.m. April 25 at the Sunnyvale Public Library.
I’ll share the in’s and out’s of food writing these days — whether it be a simple post on Facebook or an in-depth magazine story or even writing a cookbook. Want to break into food writing? Learn what it takes, as well as the benefits and the pitfalls involved. Want to start your own food blog? Learn what that entails — the good, the bad and the crazy.
Craig, who for years was the main food photographer for the San Francisco Chronicle’s food section, will teach you how to compose, light and shoot better food photos — no matter if you’re using a camera phone or a DSLR.
Enjoy a “Meet, Greet, Eat & Signing” with yours truly at 3 p.m. Feb. 21 at the Sunnyvale Library.
Can you think of a better way to spend a part of your Sunday afternoon?
Nope, didn’t think so.
