It turns out that April is a surprisingly eventful month.
On the 1st, we had April Fool’s Day, April 15th was U.S. Income Tax Day, and the 22nd was Earth Day. April is also the yearly home of National Grilled Cheese Month and National Poetry Month. And of course, this year April was the month where Passover and Easter fell.
In life, it’s always wonderful when old and new passions get an opportunity to mix. Years ago, our shared passion for poetry led my wife and I to found Zuzu’s Petals Quarterly, a literary magazine (and later, the website Zuzu.Com) which we edited together for 14 years.
Today, because April is National Poetry Month, we get to combine our passion for poetry and food by sharing here on Hugging the Coast a selection of poems that celebrate all the memories and experiences stirred up by the world of food, eating, and cooking.
If you’re also looking for some delicious recipes that might just inspire poetry (and memories) of your own, please see our growing collection of original recipes…nearly 100 so far!
