Eat This Poem: A Literary Feast of Recipes Inspired by Poetry
"Flipping through the pages of Eat This Poem will make you feel as though you're sitting down with an old, wise friend over tea—with the anticipation of a great meal to follow. The poems, and the stories behind each recipe, reinforce how meaningful the simple act of feeding and nourishing ourselves and our family is. A must for the reader and cook in your life!"
—Megan Gordon, author of Whole-Grain Mornings
Inspired by her popular blog by the same name, the Eat This Poem cookbook features more than 75 new recipes paired alongside verse from America's most beloved poets. Forage mushrooms with Mary Oliver, then wander into your kitchen to stir creamy truffle risotto. Study the skin of a pear with Billy Collins while you bake a warm vanilla-pear crumble. And honor the devoted work of farmers with Wendell Berry while snacking on popcorn dusted with rosemary and drizzled with brown butter.
In Eat This Poem, Nicole invites you into her kitchen and brings poems to life on the plate by infusing each section with personal stories, thoughtful commentary, and simple ingredients. Beautifully illustrated and utterly delightful, you'll want to brew yourself a cup of tea before curling up with this charming cookbook.
