Who knows where that line between coincidence and trend really falls, but when we noticed two high-profile food bloggers on different coasts churning out some high-quality foodie haiku, we couldn’t help but wonder—is this a new food trend?
In New York, the witty and wonderful Deb of Smitten Kitchen summarizes her latest creations with a series of haikus. My favorite is this one:
red smoky spicy
joy, the broiler and i have
found pork chop heaven
I swore off Sprinkles
then Seasonal Cherry came
Now my waistline grows.
Your call: trend or not? But I am not going to be surprised if six months from now, food bloggers in the Midwest start counting syllables and considering ways to poetically sum up making muffins. Fashion-forward food bloggers: Get a jump on the trend and start composing your haikus now!
