This is a gorgeous book - beautiful photos and great stories. The recipes are amazing but it will have a place on the coffee table until I’ve gotten through every page.

Years ago, we were able to attend some of the actual classes that led to this book. Cooking with the Saints was a lovely program with good recipes and most importantly wonderful stories about Catholic saints. This book is beautiful to look at, with biographical information about a saint before a recipe from his or her country. Learning about St. Philomena helped my daughter to discern her Confirmation saint. Uniting cooking and Catholicism turns out to be a great way to instill faith in kids. My daughter was very excited to receive this book as a gift.

This book is beautiful and inspiring. I am tenuously reconnecting with my Catholic faith and I think this book will be a gentle way back. I look forward to trying the recipes and I promise to come back once I have. For now just fascinated by all the information and imagery!! Great concept! Great writing!
