John loves to eat and this subsequently led to him teaching himself to cook. His eldest son is also a qualified chef and passes on tips.
In a recent article titled "An Ode to Cheese: With a Poem Challenge" Chris Mills (aka. cam8510) asked the following:
"This is not not so much my latest attempt at poetry as it is a challenge. I would like my friends to take a few minutes to produce a poem about food. Many of us are still shut up in our homes. Food has become a major issue. What will we eat? We search for new recipes...…….
Write a poem about food
Or I'll throw a fit.
Email me your poem when you post. Also leave a link here in the comments. Send samples of unspoilable food via your favorite delivery service."
When Hunger's at Steak ~ or Nothing Beats Beef
How I love a well-cooked steak,
Char-grilled, medium rare.
A fine rib fillet, T-bone, or rump,
No other meat compares.
Top it with green pepper sauce
And a glass of good red wine,
Nice company to share the meal,
And a pleasant place to dine.
There's nothing that I'd rather eat
Than the perfect grass-fed beef,
At home, or a restaurant
When the lockdown orders cease.
