Menu Writing

Well, yet again, it's been a long time since I last posted here. I really need to stop doing that!!

I am taking a Menu Writing class this semester at school, and it's going pretty well.

I have been in class for a month now, and it's a pretty interesting class.

My teacher is very nice, and really knows what she is talking about.

We basically learn about all that goes into making menus, the types of restaurants that work well in what kind of neighborhood, how to price/cost out food, menu terminology, and more of what goes into menu writing.

My class is on Friday afternoons, and I am enjoying it.

For homework this week, we have to rate 3 dishes from restuarants in town, and fill in a sheet for each dish, to hand in to the teacher. I am going to a local sandwich shop tomorrow with a friend, and I am really looking forward to it (partly because I have never been to this place before, even though it's only a few blocks away, and partly because I haven't seen my friend in a while).

For this class's final, we have to create a menu for a type of restaurant of our choosing. I am an avid baker, so I'm planning on creating a bakery-style menu. I can't wait to see how it turns out!!

So, hopefully I can do well in this class, and learn a lot about menu making!!
