Cooking with the Muse: A Sumptuous Gathering of Seasonal Recipes, Culinary Poetry, and Literary Fare by Myra Kornfeld, Stephen Massimilla

Cooking with the Muse offers 150 nutritious international recipes with a plenitude of imaginative poetry about food and ingredients, along with enlightening literary essays, playful culinary and historical notes, and 200 beautiful full-color photographs. Here's a feast of words and images, with easy-to-follow steps for preparing individual dishes and whole meals.

Features:

Highlights fresh, local ingredients and encourages the use of seasonal produce, wild seafood, traditional fats, and healthy meat from pasture-raised animals. Offers a delectable feast for the locavore or omnivore, novice cook or experienced chef — a food lover's literary anthology and a poetry lover's cookbook. Presents an anthology covering 3000 years; the equivalent of a complete book of original poems and poetic prose by the authors; and a complete book of original essays explaining key culinary poems and traditions. Both a literary and a culinary achievement, Cooking with the Muse is a feast for the heart and the senses, a delectable journey that nourishes the body, mind, and spirit.
