This course combines both theoretical aspects of restaurant reviewing and practical information from field experience to help you write efficiently and effectively.


  • You enjoy eating out.
  • You enjoy taking memorable meal pictures.
  • You enjoy helping others discover where to go and what to eat.


Do you enjoy sharing your dining experiences, good or bad, on social media?

This course teaches the amateur reviewer how to write like a professional food critic. It is based on the book “Yelp Help: How to Write Great Online Restaurant Reviews by Hanna Raskin. It combines both theoretical aspects of restaurant reviewing and practical information from field experience to help you write efficiently and effectively.

This course is divided into three parts:

  1. Hors-d’oeuvre

    First, we'll learn the background of restaurant criticism

  2. Entrée

    Next, we'll learn how to think UFC, act UFC, and become UFC

  3. Dessert

    Lastly, we’ll go over best practices to help you advance your skills.
