With 73 entries in just five days, the response to our last minute food haiku was great! There were so many good ones to choose from it took quite a while to narrow down the top choices. Unfortunately only one prize is available, but first I want to give honorable mentions to the runners-up:
pea shoots and favas
bounty at my fingertips
who’s green with envy?
cooking in a space
barely enough to turn ’round
still fills me with joy
I reach down and pluck
white arugula flowers
The winner of the pair of tickets to the 2013 Taste of the Nation is Giraffington McGoo for:
Trout caught fresh from stream,
dirt clinging to chantrelle feet,
we stoke the campfire.
Thanks again to Share Our Strength’s Taste of the Nation at McMenamin’s Crystal Hotel & Ballroom. Join them on Tuesday May 7th for
an evening with Oregon’s Best Chefs, Winemakers, Brewers & Distillers as they come together to end childhood hunger.
Each ticket purchased helps support Share Our Strength’s efforts in eliminating childhood hunger as well as our local beneficiaries. In the wake of staggering reports that nearly half of all children in the U.S. will be on food stamps at the some point in their life, there is no time to waste. The time to act is now.
