The Poetic Gourmette

Cooking with Prose and Poetry

The Poetic Gourmette is a collection of the author's recipes interspersed with her original poetry. Both cooling and writing poetry helped her through some dark times in her life. Every time I mixed an ingredient, I was expressing another feeling. When I had completed my recipes I felt that I had dealt with whatever the world had sent my way." But this book is much more than a poetry cook book. It is a wealth of information that includes facts about nutrients, tips about easily and inexpensively punching up our nutrition, marinating ideas, healthy substitutions in recipes, and even a key to the heretofore mystery of what constitutes a "serving size" of those five fruits and vegetables we are supposed to consume daily. Jane Silk's friendly style of writing makes you feel as though she were in your kitchen.
