Recipes from Poets

For its July 2013 enewsletter on food, The Academy of American Poets asked some poets to share recipes for their favorites dishes and drinks. Since Summer is "the season of barbeques, fresh fruit, and culinary pleasures," and since "cooking, much like poetry, is a creative process," enjoy the recipe below that poet and translator Kazim Ali shared with the Academy: "Chocolate Peanut Butter Dairy-free Ice Cream." Kazim Ali is author of The Fortieth Day (BOA, 2008) and co-translator of the forthcoming Persian translation The Oasis of Now: Selected Poems by Sohrab Sepehri (BOA, November 2013).

  • Comme l’hirondelle.

    Un son dans
    un souffle de
    poésie où la
    neige disparaît
    avec la douceur
    d’une rime

    Francesco Sinibaldi
