For more than 500 years, this elite corps have been honored to serve as guardians of the Pope at the Vatican in Rome.

This book is a collaborative effort of professionals in every sense of the word, lead by accomplished chef David Geisser. Originally released in Switzerland in late 2014, the first edition sold out in weeks and was acclaimed as spectacular, an instant classic and the first Vatican cookbook in 2,000 years in worldwide media. Tagesanzeiger, the national Swiss daily paper, has compared David Geisser to Jamie Oliver, the brilliant British chef: "What distinguishes him, beyond extraordinary culinary skills, is his dedication to the task at hand, enhanced by a charming personality." Other Guardsmen offers the reader a special inside look behind the walls of Vatican City through their eyes; which explores the intrigue of Vatican since the days of Michelangelo.
