Did you find yourself doing more cooking for the end-of-year holidays? Maybe the winter weather finds you indoors and cooking more at home than going out to eat. If you want to combine some Italian Tuscan cooking with poetry, The Poet's Cookbook might be a good choice.
There are recipes, stories, and poetry by Italian and American poets in both Italian and English.
Maria Mazziotti Gillan's contribution is this prose poem about the part of Italy where her parents were born and lived before coming to America.
Maria Mazziotti Gillan's new poetry collection is When the Stars Were Still Visible (2021). Other recent publications are the poetry and photography collection, Paterson Light and Shadow and the poetry collections What Blooms in Winter and The Girls in the Chartreuse Jackets which pairs her poems with her paintings. Maria's artist's website is MariaMazziottiGillan.com and her poetry website is MariaGillan.com.
