If you’re interested in food styling and photography or in food and wine writing, then take a look at these two Sample Food Festival Workshops.
Now in its eighth year, the Sample Food Festival is held on the first Saturday in September at the Bangalow Showgrounds. It’s a full day of feasting and sipping some of the region’s best produce showcased by some of our best chefs.
The two Sample Food Festival workshops will be a warm up to the Festival and promise to get your culinary creative juices flowing.
Eat Your Words Food & Wine Writing with Le Cordon Bleu
Hone your food writing skills and possibly kick-start your career in gastronomic journalism with leading voice in all things food, culture and travel writing – Justin Bergman (The New York Times, Time magazine, New York magazine, Modern Farmer, Monocle magazine).
His workshop Eat Your Words Food & Wine Writing will provide budding writers with detailed instruction on how to develop ideas that food editors will love and craft compelling stories for publication. You will then put these skills into practice onsite at the Sample Festival, submit stories online and receive invaluable feedback from a seasoned editor.
