Weekend cooking: A haiku

I wanted to do something different this week and somehow haiku came to my mind. Are there any haiku about food? I wasn’t sure so I had a quick look through The Essential Haiku, my first stop when it comes to haiku. Turns out there are quite a few I liked, so I decided to make this an irregular weekend cooking post. Makes a change from my cook book reviews, recipes and general rambling about food…

This one is by Basho, probably one of the best known haiku (or rather hokku, in his case) masters.  Definitely food related, but Basho somehow manages to work in the ubiquitous cherry blossoms and thus creates a beautiful picture. Wish I was there.
