3 tips to make
your story stand out
Describe the food with all your senses. What does it smell like? What's the texture? What sounds do you hear when you cook or eat it?
Set the scene. Where and when do you normally eat this food? Who do you share it with? Do you have any rituals around it?
Talk about your feelings. What emotions does that story bring up?
