Every genre requires its own style of writing. A big part of food writing is sharing recipes, which have to be written in a specific style.
Recipes can be broken into two parts: the ingredients list and the preparation method.
Ingredients must be listed in the order they’re used in the recipe, and should be specific. For example, don’t just say “sugar.” Specify if it should be granulated, brown, or confectioner’s sugar.
When it comes to the preparation method, be sure to include cooking times for every step. It’s not necessary to write in complete sentences; instead, be concise. Finish with storing instructions.
