It's Fun to Write Limericks! (Culinary Poetry Contest Details) 

Have an amusing thought about a restaurant you've visited? Love reading cookbooks and gastronomic magazines? Pick up a farm share every week? If any of these conditions apply, you should enter our food-themed limerick and haiku writing contest.

The jingles can be about anything you want, as long as some form of nourishment is mentioned.

Email your creations to Entries must be received by December 12. The cream of the crop will be printed on December 19.

Forgotten how the poems go? Here’s a sample:

Creamy hollandaise, croissant
Breakfast perfection

The prize for the Seven Days’ staff fave? Breakfast for two at Chef’s Corner!
