Talented poet and author, Jude Itakali, has created a poetic day of meals around the world. Five bloggers and writers have contributed, including me with dessert (multicoloured chocolate balls). Do go over and enjoy the delicious feast. While you are there, have a look at Jude’s excellent poetry and prose books.
