Описание

As a follow up to her two bestselling books, Bittersweet and Cold Tangerines, author and blogger Shauna Niequist returns with the perfect read for those who love food and value the community and connection of family and friends around the table.
Bread and Wine is a collection of essays about family relationships, friendships, and the meals that bring us together. This mix of Anne Lamott and Barefoot Contessa is a funny, honest, and vulnerable spiritual memoir. Bread and Wine is a celebration of food shared, reminding readers of the joy found in a life around the table. It's about the ways God teaches and nourishes people as they nourish the people around them. It's about hunger, both physical and otherwise, and the connections between the two.
With wonderful recipes included, from Bacon-Wrapped Dates to Mango Chicken Curry to Blueberry Crisp, readers will be able to recreate the comforting and satisfying meals that come to life in Bread and Wine.

    I found this book to be slow. I read a couple chapters and put it down. It did not engage me.

    I loved everything about this book. The style, the content, the author’s voice. I loved how the chapters were broken into manageable short stories, so I could read a bit, then pick it back up later without missing a beat. The author’s attitude about communion, community, and hospitality really resonated with me, as it’s something I’ve been thinking about on my own lately. I loved the voice of the book. I felt like I could just sit down at the kitchen table with the author for a chat and we’d be fast friends. I like that in a book.

    Some quotes I loved so much that I highlighted:

    “I know that there are people who see food primarily as calories, nutrients, complex bundles of energy for the whirring machines of our bodies. I know them, but they’re not my people. They’re in the same general category of people who wear sensible shoes and read manuals. Good people, but entirely foreign to me.”

    “The church is at its best, in my view, when it is more than a set of ideas and ideals, when it is a working, living, breathing, on-the-ground, in-the-mess force for good in our cities and towns.”

    “This is one of the many differences between our families of origin. His family believes in non-FDA-approved herbal supplements and the importance of spinal alignment. My family believes in Advil and the healing effects of both red wine and boating.”

    "My friend Shane says the genius of Communion, of bread and wine, is that bread is the food of the poor and wine the drink of the privileged, and that every time we see those two together, we are reminded of what we share instead of what divides us.”

    In addition to this being a jewel of a book, it is loaded with recipes at the end of nearly each chapter. Many I look forward to trying out! Read this soon. You won’t be sorry! It has inspired me to be more hospitable. 5 of 5 stars.
