Kenny Shopsin is an artist.
Topic: cuisine

From Eat Me: The Food and Philosophy of Kenny Shopsin. I am struck at Shopsin's creative process, how he let-it-all-rides on inquisitiveness and dare. Once you get in the right zone, the shackles disappear. The best poems are written fast in off-the-cuff flippancy, as if you hit upon the right moment to construct. Shopsin works along such a line in the culinary artform.

More on Shopsin: I Like Killing Flies.
