Books are a natural segue for caterers who are already used to having to write out menus and proposal. Chances are you already know what you want to write about but just haven't found the time. Here are two busy catering mavens who found the time not just once but twice to write books!
In this jam-packed session, you will find out how to structure the book around a theme, type of cooking style, a time in your career or place. Get tips on how to carve time in your day, week and month. Should you work with a ghost writer? How long does the process take? How should you approach the publishing process -- fully published or self-published? What to expect from both. And of course, how to market the book once it's printed but also, find out what you need to know now before even beginning about building an audience. Learn all this and more.
