From planting to harvest, cooking to eating, food has inspired poets, not only as one of life's most sensual pleasures, but also because poetry about food is often just as much about something else: body image, love, yearning, addiction. The Catskills' edible bounty is a feast for all the senses. In this workshop, we’ll pair exemplary food poems with incredible local fare from Rondout Valley Organics, Davenport Farms, and others, observing the unique characteristics of each food type, and drawing upon all of our senses, memories, and associations to write the food poem that could only issue from your throat. Benefits proceed Reservoir Food Pantry.
