Need only do the ESSAY!!!!!!
( if it is ok, please help me my other order which is the FIRST PARAGRAPH WORKSHOP. )
LENGTH AND FORMAT: 5-6 pages, typed, double-spaced, name &amp; page number on each page, proofread, stapled. Additional work-cited page required. Do not include a transcript of the interview.
DISCUSSION: GO to a restaurant or food place and write about it! Convey the experience, the food, the atmosphere, etc.: all the things that make up this food experience. In addition, you need to include at least two outside sources: (1) a personal interview (with chef, waitperson, etc.)â€”somebody who works there, not someone in line or a companion; (2) material from books, newspapers, journals, etc. You might like to look at some Bay Area restaurant reviews, such as yelp.com. These sources should amplify your experience. Weave them smoothly into the essay. Remember, of course, to use all your writerly strategies: details, stories, voice, etc. Let the essays in our texts inspire you. GIVE YOUR ESSAY A LIVELY TITLE–something beyond the name of the restaurant!
DON’TS: Do not devote essay space to at-home decisions of where to go, driving through traffic, getting lost, finding a parking space, etc. Get right to the meat (so to speak) of your review. Avoid the mechanical inclusion of the outside sources, especially the interview. DO: Tell your reader where you are early in the essay.
FIRST PARAGRAPH WORKSHOP
In addition to using writing strategies such as delicious or disgusting details, stories or anecdotes, and voice (talking to reader), Iâ€™d like you to consider three new versions of opening paragraph or essay-shaping strategies. This should help with organization.
(1) Begin with a quote. Choose, perhaps, a food proverb from some country, or a quote from a philosopher, poet, scientist, politician, celebrity, etc. Do not use a quote from your interview or the slogan of the restaurant. Center the quote after the title, and make it work for the entire essay, whether literally or metaphorically.
(2) Write as if you were a professional food reviewer or columnist for a magazine, newspaper, TV show, etc. You might want to give your column a title: â€œFeasting with Freddy&quot;; â€œNicole Knows Bestâ€; â€œAsk Ashleyâ€; â€œFuâ€™s Foodsâ€; â€œMiriamâ€™s Marvelous Munchiesâ€; â€œSasha Sezâ€; â€œChez Chouinardâ€; â€œBryan’s Best of the Bayâ€; â€œDongqingâ€™s Dishesâ€œ; â€œLunching With Latanyaâ€; â€œTheresienâ€™s Treasuresâ€; &quot;Eating With Adriana&quot;; â€œSupping With Sheaâ€; â€œBreakfast With Boâ€; â€œChing-Puâ€™s Pleasuresâ€; â€œDining With Daisyâ€; â€œYooâ€™s Yummiesâ€; â€œVeronicaâ€™s Veggiesâ€; (etc.) You get the idea. You are the reviewer. Inhabit this character!
(3) Write this as a letter: this can be to family member, friend, newspaper, famous celebrity, politician, etc., but it must be to someone or something specific.
Obviously your choice will influence the language, the tone, the organization, etc.
