Recipe Writers Handbook

I got the Recipe Writer's Handbook out of the library recently. It is basically full of common sense type things- don't assume your readers are expert cooks, uses standard terms and measurements, use generic names, specify the variety of vegetable etc. It really isn't of much use to me now, after writing original recipes for over three years, but it is a good resource and gives tips on how to give a recipe out over the radio and on television.
