About this item

From breads to stews to omelets and desserts, award-winning chef and former Vatican Swiss Guard David Geisser returns with 75 new international recipes that were specially conceived for the penitential season of Lent. From delicious soups and salads to zesty curries and classic Lenten staples, Chef Geisser offers here a uniquely Catholic way of celebrating the Lenten season in your home each year.Much more than a cookbook, this first-ever guidebook for mealtimes in Lent features essays from acclaimed biblical scholar Scott Hahn, who reflects on the history of fasting and its integral role in our personal spiritual growth. Hahn guides you on how to practice a holy Lent that will enable you to return your focus to Christ, and how to carry the unique and extraordinary joys of Lent forward into the rest of the year. You'll also learn of forgotten Catholic traditions and timeless customs, such as St. Martin's Lent, Ember Days, and Rogation Days and how you can apply these time-honored periods of grace to your spiritual life today.Here's a culinary masterpiece that is a must-have for any Catholic and an ideal gift for a loved one's kitchen or coffee table. It also includes:

  • Scores of meatless dishes that are both simple and savory
  • Nearly 50 pages of exclusive content from Scott Hahn on the Lenten season
  • Over a dozen meals ideally suited for those pursuing a rigorous Lent
  • Several variations on the traditional Lenten hot-cross bun recipe
  • Inspiring Scripture verses and quotes from the saints to keep you on track this Lent.

What's better than Scott Hahn? Scott Hahn and food!
This book includes the wisdom and insights of Scott Hahn and great recipes! The book contains beautiful art work and covers the history and traditions for Lent. I have tried several of the recipes and love them all! There is even a food substitution list for the purest who chooses not to use dairy or eggs or to make the meal vegan. There are several fish and bread (one is gluten free)recipes too. I highly recommend this book. It's a keeper!!

A wonderful addition to my cookbook collection
Easy to follow recipes that got me thinking in a new way about meals during this season. I’m sure we’ll use it beyond Lent as well.

Best meal I have had in a long time...
Everything tastes great from what we've tried so far. Instructions are very clear, as a guy that's important to me, plus it impresses my wife that I can actually make a good meal other than grilled steak from time to time. Highly recommend to Catholics, Christians, and well...ANYONE who loves good food!
