Hype. Inaccuracy. Mindless repetition of phrases thought up by people who died before we were born. Practically every food advertisement, every menu is guilty. And the problem with sounding like everybody else is, you sound like everybody else. And people stop listening, or don’t believe you. That leaves you no chance of distinguishing yourself, other than by word of (watering) mouth.
How does one inspire something as complicated as appetite, as unpredictable as a hankering? By deciding what you want your readers or listeners to conclude, and then finding simple, descriptive, non-clichéd language to convey your meaning. Dare to be interesting.
And stop using (at least) those fifteen clichés.
