I’m not sure if any of you have noticed but Dishoom have opened in Birmingham.
Birmingham’s top bloggers have probably already covered it, but I thought I’d take it as an opportunity to try and get some traffic to my website.
Then I thought, “hang on, Rob, you could give something back to the blogging community.” So, here’s a guide on how to write a food blog for those of you just starting out.
Ok, begin with some absolutely tedious personal information. Tell the reader that you’ve heard of Indian food before – if you’ve been to India DEFINITELY get that bit in.
Now, maybe go into some detail about the location. Waffle on about the interior for a bit. This bit is important – go to Dishoom’s website and find some information about them / their food and repeat it in your own words, this way it makes it sound like you vaguely know what you’re on about.
Next up, tell the reader that you perused the menu. You perused the absolute fuck out of that menu didn’t you? You naughty peruser.
Did you order a drink? You devil! Tell us!
Food? Say it was mouthwatering. Say something had a ‘chilli kick’.
Put a photo in, why not?
Sign off, put a score if you want, say you’ll go back.
Congratulations, you’ve written a food blog and it was a complete waste of everyone’s time.
