Length and Format – I am not looking for a specific length on this report, but you must cover
all of the above points in a concise manner that is meaningful to your country. It should be
written up in your words, in paragraph format. Remember to focus on the food! Anything less
than 4 pages (without recipes, double spaced, Times New Roman, 12 size font) is probably not
going to include enough information.
An “A” paper will include all of the above in an organized fashion, well written
without major spelling or grammatical errors, as well as extras such as: a map,
discussion with someone from that culture (“inside information”), description of a
visit to a market that caters to this culture, etc.
