IRLA: Food, Glorious Food!

Posted on December 16, 2011. Filed under: IRLA Class | Tags: , |

Now that we’re about halfway through our mini-unit of a short personal essay about a significant memory involving a special recipe, let’s think about why so many people might write about food.

Online, you can find thousands upon thousands of blogs written about food and recipes.  On bookshelves, in libraries and bookstores (and my kitchen at home!), you can find hundreds of cookbooks with recipes from places all around the world.  In short stories and novels that we read, the aromas and flavors of foods are often described in great, sensory detail.

Why is that?

Why do you think there is so much writing in this world about food?

Respond to this question here on the blog and then come back to comment on your peers’ responses as well.

I’m looking forward to your thoughts on this topic!

Please use the following pictures to explain what type of digestion is happening in the stomach.  (Your explanation should be several sentences long and should use the words “muscles”, “surface area”, and “enzymes.”)
