“A recipe for a poem”: Poetry Triple Launch

The tradition of recipes becomes part of identity. Both personal and communal, these often inherited and repeated sets of instructions show the qualities of the place we come from, as well as the people within it. Over generations, through our sense of taste, we combine and consume our environment as food and drink to create a concept of ourselves and where we come from.
