Book - 2017 | First edition.
Rate this:
A literary exploration of how poetry moves from page to plate and inspires our palates along the way--a unique pairing of poems and original recipes. Food and poetry are two of life's essential ingredients. In the same way salt seasons ingredients at each stage of a recipe, poetry seasons our lives; when celebrated together, our everyday moments and meals are richer and more meaningful. Through twenty-seven inspiring poems--ranging from modernist poets like William Carlos Williams and Elizabeth Bishop to contemporary writers like Billy Collins and Jane Hirshfield--and through the author's own reflections, we are invited to reflect on moments and tastes in new ways. The sixty-four recipes are paired with the poems to bring the sentiments, questions, and ideas expressed through words to life in our kitchen, on our plate, and through our palate.
