Fare La Scarpetta means to wipe your plate clean with a piece of bread.

I'll Be Right Back...

This blog will take a brief break and return on July 15th while I celebrate my great aunt’s 102nd birthday, honeymoon with my handsome groom and prepare to move to Washington, D.C. I look forward to returning with many new food-finds from Greece and elsewhere.

I write many poems related to food, from the preparation to the eating of many dishes. If you're interested in hearing some, I’ll be reading a selection of these poems with poet Hila Ratzabi at Made with Love Organic Bakery in Jersey City, NJ on Monday, June 7th.

For those of you who like writing about food – and other subjects – consider taking my one-week, online Beginning Poetry Writing Workshop in July. This class runs from Thursday, July 22 – Sunday, July 25th. From Monday, August 1 - Friday, August 13, you may be interested in Memoir Writing Workshop II. Think of these classes as “staycations” for writing.

To register, email me (chloemiller(at)gmail(dot)com); I’ll save you a virtual seat and send you billing details. I’ll be checking my email periodically while I’m away.

See you soon!
