what to write about food
The dreaded small talk conversation.
You offer a smile.
And a hello.
And then maybe a comment about what’s on your dinner menu.
But you leave feeling unfulfilled and wondering why you’ve just had a relatively meaningless conversation-if you can call it that- with someone.
It may be someone you know or an elevator companion or the clerk.
You wonder if they care about the answer.
You wonder if you care.
You finally sit down to pen a note to a friend, but all you can think about are the same old recipes you’ve eaten all month .
You know she‘d love to hear from you and she probably doesn’t even care if you discuss all the frozen dinners or times you threw in the towel and went out.
It’s okay to talk about food.
Who taught you/passed down your favorite dish?
What’s the atmosphere of the best restaurant in your town?
What design feature from that new cooking show are you coveting for your own kitchen?
What’s your latest farmer’s market fun-splurge?
Where were you when you served this entrée last?
What’s your go-to snack?
Describe the illustrations in a new cookbook – what made you pick it off the shelf?
What do you always change about a standard recipe?
All of a sudden you have a much more intriguing story to share.
Your friend feels like she’s sharing the moment with you.
Your typical weekday meal isn’t quite so boring and is post card worthy.
When you’re wondering what to write, take something – like food choices – and make it meaningful and memorable.
