I never imagined that I would write a book of poems about food. But in my search for topics that interest my students I came across the topic of food. Not a day goes by that I don’t hear or have conversations with my students or colleagues related to food. Comprehensible poetry is about those everyday things that affect the life of every human being and that is why students like to read this type of poems.

¡Buen provecho! is a collection of 25 poems dedicated to different types of food that have in common that they are foods that students like. For this reason, you can read poems about pizza and sushi, but also about many favorite Hispanic foods such as arepa (originally from Venezuela, as my dear friend MARGARITA PÉREZ GARCIA reminded me), empanadas, churros, guacamole and more. .

Food gives us identity, food connects us with the world and sharing it is the best excuse to enjoy a good time with our friends and family.

The poems in ¡Buen provecho! are written in the present tense and with a simple vocabulary with the aim that they can be read by students from level two onwards. I hope you enjoy each poem and ¡Buen provecho!
