As both an English major and self-proclaimed foodie, I believe I've read some of the best food writing in lines of poetry. One of my favorites is Li-Young Lee's "Persimmons": http://poetryfoundation.org/archive/poem.html?id=171753.
I just stumbled onto Daniel Hall's "Mangosteens" and am still looking for an online-text version. Anyone else have favorite food poems? Or even bits of food writing that sing like poetry?
