This week, write a poem using recipe text. Any recipes or cooking instructions will do. Refer to cookbooks, the internet (you know it?), or use old handwritten recipes (bonus points!). Here is a short list of food poetry, assembled by Susan Hutton on the Poetry Foundation website. I also recommend starting with an episode from the BBC series Posh Nosh for inspiration (below). As always, please share your poems in the comments or submit to an upcoming issue.
Check out this month’s book review, featuring From the Standard Cyclopedia of Recipes by B.C. Edwards.
