"Our days are marked by meals; our seasons, by celebrations. We plant in spring, harvest in fall. We labor over hot stoves; we treat ourselves to special meal out. Food is nurture, comfort, reward; identity, culture, creation. While some of the poems here are explicitly about the food itself-the butter, the black beans, the barbecue-all are evocative of experience of eating. Many of the poems, too, explore the everything els we bring to table: the memories, the company, even the politics.".
