Good as far as it goes 21 Oct. 2013
By Curmudgeon in the Kitchen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The main title is a bit misleading, as it is mainly about cenobitic monks and not hermits. There is so little literature on the topic that this should be welcomed by anyone interested in the history of food. I just wish it were more complete.

A Hermit's Cookbook 8 Dec. 2012
By Sophia - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I really liked the book! Totally met my expectations and am hopeful for a sequel to bring us to current day practices. Not only enjoyed reading it, I would have enjoyed researching and writing it. I think Mr. Jotischky did a better job than I would have, though.

Interesting topic for history lovers 20 Dec. 2011

I think, the book covers interesting topic. Many interesting informations about monastic life, medieval diets and some monastic recipes are included.

Not Worth the Price Nor Time Unless You have Trouble Sleeping At Night! 8 Aug. 2011
By Mariangela Buch - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Here is yet ANOTHER book in which an author picked a tired, exhausted topic they were interested in and wrote an entire book about--in this case, the topic was about monks. The first chapters cover the usual: what monks are, what they did as monks, who were some famous monks, and, then eventually what they ate. Unfortunately, the book is boring to distraction. By page 90, I just about gave up since almost every paragraph was a repeat of the pervious one. I was frustrated that I actually bought the book. When you have headings like 'Bread,' 'Lentils,' and 'Beans,' I suppose the book speaks for itself. I'd check this one out at the library first before buying it.
