Lent asks many things of us in principle and practice. This is a rare and utterly practical guide more than just abstinence. Is it our luxuries such as chocolate or alcohol that should be a scarcity, or should we do something positive, and if so what? How best can we nurture our bodies and souls through this important period in the year?
Christina Rees takes us on a spiritual and culinary exploration of the Christian traditions around fasting and feasting in Lent and Easter with a dynamic and a creativity. Divided into sections for breakfast, lunch and dinner, Christina examines the significance of each and includes recipes for quick but satisfying meals through the forty days of Lent, leading up to an Easter feast to savour, rich in symbolism and style. A cookery book with spiritual wisdom thrown in, Feast + Fast offers simple and delicious food with accompanying depth and thought for this Lent, and much beyond! DLT are to be congratulated for the production of this attractive, unique and refreshing title.
