HOW TO WRITE BETTER RECIPE TITLES
1. Go Ethnic
- Adding a foreign ingredient or name of an exotic locale adds mystique and interest to a dish.
(examples: Louisiana Gumbo, Maryland Crab Cakes, etc.)
2. Evoke Seasons
- Just like recipe titles with locales can create scenes, recipe titles with seasons suggest moods and are recommendations for when to make the dish.
(examples: Spring Fruit Bowl, Springtime Risotto)
3. Profess to be the “BEST”
- Just tell the world that your recipe is truly the best. We all want to be convinced that the recipe is good, and you as the chef know better than anyone.
(examples: Ultimate Fudge Sundae, Best Ever Mac and Cheese)
4. Use Descriptive Recipe Titles
- Just the title of a recipe can invite you in or out. Use descriptive words, without creating an excessively long title.
(examples: What would you rather make: Mushroom Bomb Lentil Pasta or Pasta with Mushrooms?)
5. Emphasize Speed
- Who doesn’t want to have recipes that can be whipped up in no time? We’re always looking for fast recipes, so emphasize how quick it is to make your delicious recipe.
(examples: 5 Minute Spaghetti Carbonara, Quick Hollandaise Sauce)
