"With insightful and eloquent posts, a well-curated selection of poetry, and delicious recipes, we are thoroughly taken with her unique approach to food blogging." —SAVEUR
If you love the smell of books, gathering around a dinner table, a good glass of wine, and reading when it rains, you're in the right place.
Eat This Poem launched in January 2012 as a way to fuse two of my passions, food and writing. I hope you'll stay a while (preferably with a hot mug of tea or coffee in hand) as we explore how poetry moves from page to plate, and inspires our palates along the way.
In addition to recipe and poetry pairings, you'll also find musings on writing, cooking, creativity, motherhood, and embracing the simple things. More nourishment can be found here, where I support writers to design a sustainable writing practice.
My first book, Eat This Poem: A Literary Feast of Recipes Inspired by Poetry, will be published in Spring 2017 by Roost Books.
I received an MFA in creative writing from Vermont College of Fine Arts and studied literature and art history at the University of California, Santa Barbara. In 2011, I founded The Giving Table, a website that empowers everyone to change the food system.
You can find me eating my way through Los Angeles, where I live with my husband, son, and French bulldog.
