Catherine Cleary: Delicious Words - Restaurant Reviewing

Catherine Cleary

The Fish Kitchen

Mon 17 July



Make it from scratch with good ingredients. That’s how to cook great food. It’s also how to write a good restaurant review. Delicious Words is a seminar on restaurant reviewing by a journalist who fell accidentally into the world of food writing and is still figuring it out one dinner at a time. Whether you’re a food blogger, a writer or a food-obsessed restaurant lover this will be an entertaining and enlightening experience.

Her first book, Life Sentence, Murder Victims and their Families was published in 2004.
