journal contributionposted on 2017-12-06, 00:00 authored by Donna BrienDonna Brien
This article argues that Australian food writing can be assessed in literary terms. It profiles a number of prominent food writers who, alongside being popular and producing content of significance, are also admired for their quality of their writing. While a number of food writers have won acclaim specifically due to the literary quality of their writing, this is a relatively new way of assessing Australian food writing and examples of writers in the Australian context are profiled. This provides not only another way to read, understand and evaluate these food writing texts, but is also a means by which this popular, important and creative form of writing can be more closely integrated into the practice, teaching and research of non-fiction writing.
