How Recipe Writing Teaches Creative Skills

In her 2012 interview, author and food writer Cathy Erway notes the two aspects of the recipe writing process - experimenting and testing the recipe and then meticulously writing out the recipe.

Her first book, "The Art of Eating In" developed from her blog "Not Eating Out in New York".
