About this experience

You love to entertain and your friends always ask for recipes. Maybe it's time to produce your own cookbook, start a blog or write recipes for publications? Join award-winning author, writing coach, blogger, and James Beard Foundation book judge Dianne Jacob for an intimate conversation about turning your ideas into published material. With Dianne’s guidance, you’ll explore your writing and publishing options, and how to finesse your ideas. Dianne will walk you through the steps of how to take a good idea for a cookbook or food blog and turn it into a reality. For those interested in writing a cookbook, she will help you understand the components of an original recipe, how to structure a cookbook, how to get it published, and how to self-publish.

What to expect

You and Dianne Jacob will meet in your home (over video chat) so that you can acquire valuable skills that will last well beyond your time together.


This Delicious Experience is not a pre-recorded video, big Zoom gathering, or the kind of online course where your eyes glaze over; it is a one-of-a-kind private experience where you and Dianne Jacob will work together side-by-side, learning and creating memorable experiences.


After booking, you will communicate directly with Dianne Jacob to adapt the experience to your particular interests.


Prior to your online workshop we will provide you with a Zoom link and any assistance you may need to connect to the experience from your laptop, tablet, or phone.
