Food is an increasingly popular topic for writing that spans a broad range of genres. Food writing is not restricted to restaurant reviews; it includes feature articles, travelogues, journals, memoirs, blogs, movies and novels. Food is an emotionally driven subject but a subject that every student experiences and can write about. In English classrooms students can learn to express their own ideas and experiences through their enjoyment or engagement with issues relating to food effectively. It is important for students to compose creative non-fiction texts, in particular, because they often incorporate elements of persuasive, informative and imaginative texts at the same time.
