Advice for future food writers

Amanda Hesser NYTimesIn Cooking From Every Angle, Advice for Future Food Writers, Food 52's Amanda Hesser gives indepth and realistic advice to anyone looking to make a career in food writing. Of particular interest is that she notes how much her advice has changed from just a few years ago. Besides the explosion of food writing online (blogs, etc.) there is also the realities of the economic pressures on print publications. However, she's not totally pessimistic. As she writes, 

"So what happens now if someone comes to me wanting to become a writer? I don't totally crush their dreams. I just step on them a bit -- before trying to help the aspirant re-imagine his or her future in a whole new way."

A must read for anyone looking to get into the food writing biz.
