Wordsmith Mike Warburton casts a light-hearted poetic slant on food, from apple to meat pie, to zucchini. These deliciously crafted verses explore our relationship with cuisine, revealing many little-known wonders – like the hidden danger of eating coriander, the ancient history of the black pudding and the Yorkshireness of rhubarb. Having consumed these nuggets, your notion of the banana or beans on toast may change forever, and you won’t be able to look at a Battenberg cake in the same way again. This book will delight anyone having an interest in comestibles, in comic verse or, simply, in the communication of language.
