    A culinary travelogue through Hong Kong and East Asia, noted poet, critic, and food writer Leung Ping-kwan brings all three of his passions under one roof in this bilingual edition.
     
    食物是食物本身又是意象,詩是美學又是對話的聲音,詩人是自己是旅人也可以化身物象觀看眾生。用詩的寫作探索,時而詮釋詠物傳統,複製古典格律,時而挪用童謠口語,挑戰語言幅度,限制與自由間溢出蘸醬的濃香、青菜沙律的口感及咀嚼的節奏。地圖上一點一點跳躍,香港、澳門與新加坡,羅馬、巴黎與維也納,食材調味懷著時間的密語,本土文化與殖民主義,或吸納或轉化,互相滲染,一口金必多湯一碟黃飯是社會歷史脈絡的割離與挪移。還有雅芝竹的慾望、菜乾的回憶和椰醬飯的悲哀,及更多想像和當下感觸。食物外還有其他物象。五十首詩作原文為中文,中英雙語出版。翻譯文字,也譯介文化。
