An Ode to Foodie

 

biryani

Kitchens of the world combined

In this book that’s yours and mine

 

The Asian Weekly fancied cuisine delight

Teasing the palates, tongues and taste buds

 

Tantalize the taste receptors basic ones

With feisty eyes, sharp nose and awakened ears

 

Led by your individual doors of perception

Choose your type of dining and give it a run

kebabs

 

Be it Indian, Pakistani or Mid Eastern one

The Kebabs, Tikkas and Biryanis are all fun

 

The Oriental aromas engulf the buds in delight

Pad Thai, Tom Yum, Schezwan to the flavor right

 

The spice levels savored as per one’s might

The sweet, salty, sour, bitter, umami strong or light

 

Fermented seasonings of the Japanese find

Add hidden zest to the Sashimi and Sushi kind

 

Cucina Italian giving the garlic and butters a grind

The breads crusty, shaped pastas from the dough bind

macaroons

Chasing the cheese so blue, white, yellow divine

The French Connection in satiating tummies thine

 

Connoisseurs in appetite and presentation lessons

Foodies relish gourmet coursed meals in abbreviation

 

A splash of some vinegar with tangy acidic nature

Drops of Soy sauce or horseradish forming fusion culture

 

Olives, gherkins and maize meal flat or curved breads

With the cow boyish kick find the Mexican spreads

 

Forgetting not our Swahili tradition so exotic

The beans, the greens and tubers adding frolic
