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.

Mike Warburton started writing for a local newspaper when he was 13. Although he reported on football matches in which he played, no journalistic bias was ever shown. He has written verses and jokes for greetings cards, articles for Runner’s World and Cheshire Life magazines and currently sets crosswords for national newspapers including The Times. A book of his online crosswords for Chambers was published in 2016. He lives in Stockport with his wife, Sue. They both love food, but not quite as much as their terrier, Stanley.
