Literary cookbook Eat This Poem celebrates food and poetry, two of life’s very important ingredients.
I wish to keep in mind that us this way–
late September sun streaming through
the window, bread loaves and golden
bunches of grapes at the table,
spoonfuls of hot soup rising
to our lips, filling us
with what endures.
–Peter Pereira, from “A Pot of Red Lentils”
Food and poetry are two of life’s very important ingredients. In the same way that salt seasons ingredients to bring out their flavors, poetry seasons our lives; when celebrated together, our on a regular basis moments and meals are richer and more meaningful.
The twenty-five inspiring poems on this book–from such poets as Marge Piercy, Louise Glück, Mark Strand, Mary Oliver, Billy Collins, Jane Hirshfield–are accompanied by seventy-five recipes that bring the richness of words to life in our kitchen, on our plate, and through our palate. Eat This Poem opens us up to fresh ways of gaining access to poetry and lends new meaning to the foods we cook.
