In poems from as varied women poets as Jane Kenyon, Lucille Clifton, and Anne Sexton, food emerges as a re-occurring and central metaphor in the way women live, in the pulse of the everyday, and as a vehicle for the exotic. From coffee to caviar, from potatoes to dandelions-even in hunger and anorexia-the metaphors of food have worked like yeast in the imagination of these poets.Preface by Chef Charlotte Turgeon.Phyllis Stowell initiated the Saint Mary's College of California MFA program. She is a former Fellow of the Camargo Foundation and was a Dewitt Wallace/Reader's Digest Fellow at the MacDowell Colony. She was granted a Barbara Deming Money for Women Award and was a winner of the International Quarterly Crossing Boundaries Poetry Prize.

She publishes poetry, criticism, and poetry reviews.Jeanne Foster is a Professor in the Graduate Liberal Studies program at Saint Mary's College of California.
