When I wrote my first book, Gone Fishing: A Novel in Verse, I included a poem called Recipe for Fishing. In it the main character, Sam, explains the ingredients needed to go fishing. The recipe p0em is really a how-to poem and is a fun way to express a topic that isn’t necessarily about food, so in honor of this month’s theme I’d like to share my Recipe for Writing a Recipe Poem.
Happy Thanksgiving, and happy recipe poem writing!
