Competition 2

Past Search Prize for Non-Fiction


The Brief: Write a blog article from 1 – 1.5k words. I would like to read an emotional piece about a dish, a meal or food you have cooked which evoked memories and emotions for good or for bad, or even comical. A Babette’s Feast moment – where the food moved the mood. I’d like to know about the food – I want to taste it in the words and feel the emotion. 

Food blogging is very much about imagery and photography, so a cover picture would be amazing too.
