"Amateur" Food Critics Needed!!

Gayle | Oct 16, 2001 01:39 PM

Ever wanted to pretend you were Phyllis Richman?
Here's your opportunity. I work for an organization called Brainfood, and we use food as a tool to build life skills with youth in a fun and creative setting.
This coming week we have an activity in which our students go to a restaurant, sample some of its offerings, and put together a critique modeled after a professional review. We usually take a food journalist with us to walk the students through the process.Problem is...this year we don't have a food journalist lined up! Would you like to fill in? You could dress up and act out the role you've always longed to fill!

This might sound like a joke, but it's not. We would really like to have a special guest to make it a great experience for the students. We work with 14-18 year old students from three public schools, in groups of 10-12.

We will be doing this activity next week. You could either come to a class before the actual restaurant visit and just talk about the fundamentals of food writing, or accompany us on the restaurant visit. Dates are: Mon, Oct.22-Thurs, Oct.25.

Let me know if you're interested. Should be fun!!

Thank you,

Gayle Maslow
