Research Paper Topic

Posted by Tricia Zephyr in Uncategorized

For my Research Paper I was thinking about writing about Food Memoirs. Everyone has a connection to food. As we humans, we need it to live, and there is not only a necessity for it but an intimacy with it that I find interesting. The intimacy with food has manifested into the genre of memoirs by authors such as Frank Bruni, Anthony Bourdain, Alice Waters, and known chefs writing about their experiences with food.

I think food writing is a combination between memoirs and creative non-ficiton and I really want to explore that notion within this paper.

Books I plan on choosing are :

Born Round: A Story of Family, Food and a Ferocious Appetite- Frank Bruni

Medium Raw- Anthony Bourdain

Spoon Fed- Kim Severson

The Apprentice: My Life in the Kitchen- Jacque Pepin

The Art of Eating In: How I Learned to Stop Spending and Love the Stove- Cathy Erway

Lunch in Paris: A Love Story, with Recipes by Elizabeth Bard
