Writing Food and Identity
with Lesley Téllez
Friday, September 10
2:00 - 4:00pm EDT
How does food inform our identities and those of the characters we create -- or report on -- in our writing? In this session we'll explore the ways we can successfully weave food into our writing, and why it's important, both from a storytelling and a cultural perspective. We'll touch on food writing and storytelling as a way to combat erasure, a way to reflect on loss, and a way to challenge dominant narratives. We'll also generate new material that will leave us all feeling inspired to write more about food.
Lesley Téllez is a journalist, fiction writer, recipe developer, and entrepreneur in New York City. Her cookbook Eat Mexico: Recipes from Mexico City’s Streets, Markets and Fondas is her love letter to the four years she spent living in Mexico’s capital. For ten years, Lesley was co-founder and owner of the top-rated tourism company, Eat Mexico. Lesley's writing, which mostly explores Mexican food and identity, has been published in Food & Wine, Bon Appetit, TASTE, Eater, and The New York Times, among others. Find her on Instagram & Twitter @lesleytellez.
