Ever since the incident with the ginger
boyfriend and the ginger-
I never baked a thing ‘til this
tin of non-stick with
ten scooped shell dips
for piping courgette-laced mix
to be zucced up to a crisp.
will fit the arc of the palette.
Our mouths, big toe sized,
say: lo and behold
this is good! I coasted
the pips to fit just into but out of it,
thought again of My First Parmesan:
in the house of Yarnit (at home Mum
and I ate courgette soufflé
with a lettuce leaf).
I’m still deferring my questions
to their expertise: Parmesan
or Parma Reggiano? And
now the Yarnit sisters,
standing on my step a cake to each hand.
Try my toe-cakes, please.
