Saporoso – poems of Italian Food & Love

by Jennifer Barone with artwork by Lam Khong

Saporoso (Italian for “tasty”) – is the latest collection of poems by Jennifer Barone with original drawings by 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 updated, Second Edition by Feather Press – includes three new poems and a new section of her family recipes.

USD $18. + $5 shipping – Paperback, 81 pages
