comment What do I need to know to get started with food photography?
@John: In general, Primes produce much better results in nearly every aspect compared to Zoom's. For food photography, that general statement holds. I do all my food photography with 50mm primes. I experimented with a 50mm macro, and while close focus is nice, the extra light from my 50 1.4 more than compensated for it.

comment What resources can you suggest to help me write contracts?
I don't think this needs to be closed (else i would have voted ;p), but some of the questions you asked, have been covered in other questions.

You're actually asking a few questions here, but I do recall a number of questions that have touched on this issue: photo.stackexchange.com/search?q=contract
