Instructor: Steve Barnes Member:210. | Non-Member:234. Enrollment Max: 15

Join Steve Barnes, restaurant columnist for the Times Union and author of the popular Table Hopping blog, for a six-week exploration of writing about food, from the way it tastes to its role in our lives. Sometimes just fuel for our bodies, food more often nourishes us emotionally as well, and since we experience it primarily through taste and smell, senses rooted in primal parts of our brain, food connects us profoundly to our past, our families, our memories and our experiences. The class will cover writing about food in a variety of ways, including but not limited to memoirs, essays, descriptive features and criticism.
