Do you know anything about these keto and paleo things that seems to be everywhere now?

This assignment will emulate any (and many) of the thesis-driven articles replete with evidence, examples and support investigating the intersections of identity and food OR culture and food OR humanity and food. As such, it seeks to provide just one possible, captivating and persuasive answer (with tons of proof!) to just one of the following questions: 1) What does food say about me? 2) What does food say about my culture? 3) What does food reveal about humanity in general?
From Mishan’s “What We Write About When We Write About Food”:
Still, when contemporary food writers (and, I suppose, I am one) stray from celebrating flavors to probe the larger issues surrounding the parade of dishes to our tables — exploitation of labor, abuse of animals, climate change, the homogenizing of cuisines and cultures under globalization, systemic injustices that allow millions of people to go hungry each year — some readers complain. Food should not be political, they insist. Food is universal; food unites us. Let us have our cakeLinks to an external site. in peace.
For this Assignment #2 Brainstorm (or “Shitty First Draft”): ”you need to do this part”!!
Let’s muddy the waters a little bit and get our hands dirty and wrestle out some potential seeds that could blossom into giant fruiting trees down the road! When you consider food carefully, what topics come up for you? Mishan mentions “exploitation of labor, abuse of animals, climate change, the homogenizing of cuisines and cultures under globalization, systemic injustices that allow millions of people to go hungry each year…” as topics that swell up around the topic of food for her. Which of those topics that she’s listed have you heard about, read something in the news about or have considered before/have an opinion about? If you haven’t considered these topics around food, which might interest you enough to do some digging around? Jot down any thoughts you have around Mishan’s topics.
Now brainstorm any additional topics and thoughts that pop up for you, personally, around food. Have you ever dieted? Lost sleep over body issues and your relationship to food? Do you know anything about these Keto and Paleo things that seems to be everywhere now? Do you follow any food bloggers or YouTubers? Consider yourself a foodie? Watch The Great British Bake-Off or Top Chef religiously? Any mukbang now and then? Ever eaten an insect? Or anything else your typical American would find “gross” or “unappealing”? etc. etc. etc.
Jot down any thoughts you have about any or all of the above and in any way that you find helpful. Maybe you want to draw a bubble diagram. Maybe you want to make a bullet point list. Maybe you want to record yourself talking. Whatever. I simply want you to start engaging with the topic of food and its relationship with you, your culture, and our world and humanity. Upload any kind of file here to show how you are beginning to engage with Assignment #2!
Oh yeah, and don’t forget what Anne Lamott says: “The first draft is the child’s draft, where you let it all pour out and then let it romp all over the place, knowing that no one is going to see it and that you can shape it later. You just let this childlike part of you channel whatever voices and visions come through and onto the page.”

What is it?
This assignment is designed to work on our understanding of imitation, not copying. That is, borrowing the tactics and techniques that a writer skillfully employs and applying these concepts in our own writing for a purposeful effect. In order to do this successfully, we must understand why an author chose a particular rhetorical (or stylistic) technique based on its effect on the message or content being transmitted, and then how to adapt that technique to our own message or content in our own writing projects, always thinking about who we are communicating with (the specific, intended audience), and the genre or medium we are working in. For any genre (recipes, tweets, mystery novels, dating site bios, resumes, lab reports, etc.) there are always model texts out there for us to find, read carefully, see how they communicate effectively, figure out what skills they are using to do that, and then borrow those skills and employ them in our own recipes, tweets, mystery novels, dating site bios, resumes, lab reports, etc.
You get it. We are learning how to adapt our messages for any circumstance by studying how it’s done by people who have already mastered how to do it effectively!
In this assignment, we will be working on a “Recommendation Letter” that might appear in The New York Times Magazine. Do you have to write about a snack you stress-eat? Nope. Your cravings for exotic fruits? Nope. Neither. (Actually, I’d avoid any similarities in content to any of the “Recommendation Letters” we read, especially since you don’t want to venture anywhere near copying these authors.) The content of your piece should relate to a food item, yes, but always starting with things you are familiar with in your own life—truths that resonate with you and your background. The skills you employ in delivering that content, however, should be modeled after the choices in style of any (and all!) of the model texts we have read and discussed. We have only seen a few, at this point, but as we continue working through this assignment over the next two and a half weeks, we will add more and more model texts for you to glean from and imitate and improve your writing. Yes, your letter WILL KEEP CHANGING over the next few weeks! And not just minor changes, but MAJOR ones…
WARNING:
Don’t get too attached to your first draft—it will change dramatically!
Three Globally-revised drafts? (Yup, yup and yup!)
Rough Draft*- Sunday midnight, October 9th (beginning of Week 3)- This is where you get to play and explore and, yep, begin to develop your ideas. The only condition is that your Letter of Recommendation revolves around food. But you’ll want to do more than that, too. As you develop your style by imitating our model Letters of Recommendation, you’ll begin to find, too, that the content developed explores ideas beyond simply food simultaneously. Aim for around 750 words here in proper MLA formatting. Note: no “Accompanying Analysis” will be necessary this round!(Just 750 words please finish as fast as you can just a rough draft)
