Are you interested in the stories behind the food? Whether it’s your mom and her secret recipe, or your kids and their favorite foods, there is a story in everyone, and in every dish. Rebekah Denn moderates as Tori Avey, Beth Lee, Melissa Crane, and Molly Wizenberg discuss how to tell those stories through your food blog, how to document family history and recipes, and how to capture people's experiences through food, travel, and the socializing that holds those things together. Learn to create a story blog that has a voice and identity true to you -- a distinction that benefits your blog and (should you be interested) your cookbook proposal, helping it float to the top of the proverbial "slush pile."
