The judges also highly commended Thomas Moore (last year’s winner), now aged 17, for his tightly written, engaging story ‘London, A Gastronome's Paradise’ with a deft touch of self-deprecation. Commenting on Thomas’ entry, Seb Emina (who describes himself as a ‘freewheeling writer, editor and copywriter’) said: ‘This is proof that a good piece of food writing doesn’t need to mention food in every sentence. It had me laughing at times, and the pay-off is very nicely done.’
The winner will receive a library of award-winning cookery and food books, a visit to the delicious. test kitchen and the entry will be published within the delicious. media platform.
Impressed with the entries this year, the judges praised the high standard of writing skills and the variety and diversity of subject areas covered by the entrants. They urged all those young people interested in food to hone their writing skills in time for next year’s competition.
Note: Write It, an annual competition organised by the Guild of Food Writers, is open to entrants aged up to 18 years old who are asked to write a 750-word descriptive piece based on a food-related subject.
