Behold: the winning entries from our recent ginger haiku and limerick contest. Congrats Daryl and Catherine! We’re also including a few haikus that made us smile. A big thanks to Aaron Cohen/eatboston for organizing a fabulous Ginger Explosion II event last night. See an article about the event and photos in the Somerville Patch. And follow @eatboston on twitter to learn about more fab local food events, including pop-up restaurants. And without further ado…
From Asia comes something exotic
About which I’ve grown quite neurotic
Packing punch in my food
In my hair, I’ve shampooed
Ah, Ginger – I find you hypnotic.
All the other types of spice are moot.
There’s only one that will suit.
I confess I’ve become a binger
Who can’t resist the ginger.
Oh, you infatuating root.
When bitten into
you bite back.
Sexy and sultry,
Ginger you enhance my dish.
Mary Ann, you’re not.
