Saporoso (Italian for “tasty”) – is the latest collection of poems by Jennifer Barone in collaboration with artist Lam Khong. Saporoso reads like a robust, Italian dinner menu that explores the sensual nature of Italian culture, mythology, family, sex and love through Italian food and its natural, aphrodisiac qualities. As she states in her poem, “it is no small thing to eat” – through making and sharing food, we find the basic thread of our humanity, connection to each other and ultimately an expression of love.
This newly updated, Second Edition by Feather Press – includes three new poems, an additional section of the author’s family recipes and features beautiful drawings by artist Lam Khong. Visit featherpress.org for more.
