- A fascinating book tracing the centuries-old links between theology and food, showing religion in a new and intriguing light

"Nevertheless, this is an inspiring interpretation of the possibility of reclaiming and reconnecting theology, food, and a fuller eucharistic life." (The Theology of Food, 1 October 2013)"This book deserves to be widely read and, if you will forgive the metaphor, digested." (Christian Century)

(Theological Book Review)
"This much-needed book takes seriously the Churches' unique contribution to understanding the importance of food." (Church Times)
