Its not what you would expect from a cook book come book of food stories, written by a priest, full of wisdom and insight and some excellent recipes too. This is more like a dinner conversation where you are talking and cooking, drinking and discussing - it's an easy read and a full of insights. For anyone who likes food - I mean eating, talking and cooking - this is a must for your bookshelf
I loved this book; in parts! Very thoughtful in places, causing exceptional reflection on the whole topic of food and how we as created humans relate to creation. Unbearably irritating in other sections, to point of being anal. Only a few of the recipes are likely to be tried, but I suspect that is not the point.
Glad I bought the book on the recommendation of a good friend. We plan to meet up to discuss our thoughts as a result.
I've never read a book like this. Part cookbook, part theological perspective. Pages on how to chop an onion, eating cheese, making bread, railings against the cereal barons and why lunch need only be cheese and beer.
