Ian Brown, a well-known and award-winning magazine writer and author, has been chosen writer-in-residence at the renowned Stratford Chefs School. According to a story from Canadian Press, the program is named for the late Joseph Hoare, former food editor of Toronto Life magazine who died in 1997.
Brown recently swept three awards for his book "The Boy in the Moon," including the Charles Taylor Prize for literary non-fiction. He has been a prolific magazine writer, having won 7 gold and 5 silver National Magazine Awards and been a nominee 27 times.
This summer, he has written a series of articles for the Globe and Mail documenting his gastronomic tour of Canada, entitled Ian Brown Eats Canada.
According to the story, he will spend two weeks at the chefs school during 2010-11 and will lead small seminars and workshops and work one-on-one with novice writers on the intricacies of gastronomic writing.
