Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Scent and Memory: how cooking parallels writing (by Leslie McGrath):


Lovely post (and not just because you mentioned me). You are so much associated with your warm kitchen and your cozy office in my mind, making good things in both places.

There is so much parallel between cooking and writing. That's probably why so many poets are such good cooks - and good eaters!

My chocolate mint is rampant - any time you want more, let me know.

I agree re: parallels between cooking and writing. Writers are sensualists and cooking engages all of the senses. These posts are wonderful. Thank you.

Can I have some of that bread, please?

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
