Poems for Bread All month long, O, Miami & Zak the Baker want to know: What is Miami food culture?

We know Tuscan, we know Greek, we know French Brasserie. We know Thai, we know Napoli, we know Korean BBQ. What’s South Florida’s regional cuisine? What grows in our alkaline soil at the 25th latitude? Who picks it? Who cooks it? What flavors it? What cultures? What rituals? What memories?

We believe that Miami, and the rest of South Florida, can have a regional cuisine just as unique and compelling as any other in the world. To help nurture this aspiration, we’ve teamed up with our friends at Zak the Baker to create a month-long “Poems for Bread” trade.

Here’s how to participate during the month of October:

  • Share 1 haiku with us and we’ll share 1 loaf of bread. 1 Poem = 1 Bread.
  • Poem must be written and submitted at the bakery during hours of operation.
  • Limited to 1 trade per day (while supplies last).
  • Available all month long with the exception of Saturdays and Oct 9th.

To all those who live here, work here, visit here, or are connected with Miami in some way, we want to hear from YOU, “What is Miami food?”
