How Red Are Your Roses?

Hello, and welcome to our 2011 Valentine’s day competition. Today, we are asking you to summon your wit and – rather than declaring your love for a fellow human being – pen a Roses are Red poem about the kitchen tool you desire as your Valentine.

If your poem rocks our socks off, you will stand a chance to win the kitchen tool you wrote about (we know, Happy Valentine’s Day). In case you are drawing blanks, the original Roses are Red poem was:

Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
Sugar is sweet,
And so are you.

And some pimped up inspiration:

Roses are red,
Clouds are white,
To flip eggs in a Swiss Diamond,
Would set my heart alight
.

Roses are red,
To pare is divine,
And if I had a knife from Wusthof,
My eyes would shine.

Got it? Write a poem about your favourite kitchen tool available on Yuppiechef, and then post it on Facebook* or email it to us.

Entries close at midnight on Tuesday 15 February, and the winner will be chosen from the Mug of Destiny and announced on Wednesday 16 February.

Good luck, lovebirds.
