More Description

A Taste for Writing: Composition for Culinarians is the first composition and grammar textbook created specifically for culinary students. The first 19 chapters include thorough explanations of each stage of the writing process; chapters on the rhetorical modes, research, and business writing; and a chapter for ESL students. The second half of the text covers the parts of speech and basic grammar, plus special chapters on verbs, pronouns, modifiers, parallelism, punctuation, spelling, and commonly misused words. Writing often has to do with storytelling, and A Taste for Writing exemplifies this by using stories from film and television that will help the student relate to the concepts. The explanations are as visual and hands-on as possible and the text includes 50 photographs of culinary students and over 100 charts and diagrams that organize and illustrate key concepts. The highly visual text, hands-on activities, and samples of student writing make the concepts well accessible to students and professionals alike

Cadbury Product Description A Taste for Writing: Composition for Culinarians is the first composition and grammar textbook created specifically for culinary students. The first 19 chapters include thorough explanations of each stage of the writing process; chapters on the rhetorical modes, research, and business writing; and a chapter for ESL readers. The second half of the book covers the parts of speech and basic grammar, plus special chapters on verbs, pronouns, modifiers, parallelism, punctuation, spelling, and commonly misused words. A key concept behind A Taste for Writing is to break down barriers between readers and composition through explanations that draw images and examples from food and cooking. For example, "brainstorming" ideas early in the writing process is compared to peeling a potato, and the commas that surround interrupters in a sentence become a server's hands carrying a tray of fruit. Writing often has to do with storytelling, and A Taste for Writing exemplifies this by using stories from film and television that will help the reader relate to the concepts. The explanations are as visual and hands-on as possible and the book includes 50 photographs of culinary students and over 100 charts and diagrams that organize and illustrate key concepts. The highly visual text, hands-on activities, and samples of writing make the concepts easily accessible to professionals and students alike.
